Day 112/365 Rain Rain Go Away

rain rain
I saw the rain drops drip dropping outside today and thought that the splashes on the sidewalk were pretty awesome, so I took out the camera and shot this through my front door.  The saying is one my Grandma used to say all of the time.  I like it.  It's true.

Rain fell last night...quiet, gentle rain, 
that tapped against my window pane, 
and called me back from troubled sleep, 
to soothe a heart too numb to weep.
My loneliness was too deep and real, 
and like a wound that would not heal, 
it throbbed within me, and I knew 
my arms were empty without you. 

But as I listened to the sound 
of soft rain falling on the ground,
I heard your voice, tender and clear, 
Call my name, and oh my dear, 

I threw my window open wide, 
to let the sweet rain rush inside.  
It kissed my lips, my eyes, my hair, 
and love, I knew that you were there. 

Tears that my heart could not release 
Fell down from Heaven, bringing peace.
Last night while gray clouds softly wept,
I held you in my arms and slept. 


  1. Grandma is right.
    I'm ready for some sunshine now.

  2. The saying is so true...nothing goes right 100% of the time.

  3. lovely photo. wise words. touching poem.
    I wish I had a big umbrella for all the yas to stand under.
