Let the rain do my crying

Let if fall to the earth like broken dreams

Through the cracks

Let it beat down on leaves

Like a lover’s rage summoned by a love,

A dream

A hope

….lost

 

Let the rain do my crying

For I am dried up inside

Emotions chaffed from the absence of waters of love

Love once flowed, from what seemed an eternal source

 

Arid soul

Longing for the touch,

The touch that once only the thought thereof would soothe any ache

So long it has been

The touch fades in my memory…

 

Let the rain do my crying

Let it fall through space and wind and trees

Let it fall for it is much more pleasant than my bitter, salty tears

Tears refuse to fall anyway

I am dried up inside

 

Let it rain

Rain on a seed will birth new life

Rain will refresh parched places

Who will rain on my heart?

Who will restore it to a well-watered garden that blooms?

 

My tears will only burn the windows of my soul

They will sting the mirror to my heart

So let the rain do my crying

 

Let it rain
