It's Rainin' (like never before)

Updated on March 27, 2015

The way it’s rainin’
It’s just like forgettin’
Pain that lasted a lifetime
Because it was swept away by your love

The way it’s rainin’
It’s just like rememberin’
Love still works
When you decide to let it in

It’s rainin’
Like never before
Summer can wait
For as long as it takes
For the rain
To bring you to my door

An old creek bed still knows what to do
You just have to give it what it needs
You can let your heart dry up
Or let it rain and see where it leads

It’s rainin’
Like never before
Summer can wait
For as long as it takes
For the rain
To bring you to my door

The way it’s rainin’
It’s just like livin’
In her garden
With flowers she planted long ago

      @rahul - Thank you! The rain is such a good metaphor and it is also a literal joy especially when you need it as badly as we do down here in Austin, Texas.

      @Vinaya - Thanks! Nice prose...

      @lovedoctor - Thank you. I've never seen a town as happy over rain as ours. We had a terrible drought with wild fires last summer and there was fear in the air. But it came down in buckets... and it made me think of life and love...

      Lovely poem, good imagery.

      It's nice to love every season because each one of them has a special feeling. I love and anticipate summer because of the long days and warm nights. There's nothing better than the sound of pouring rain.

      Autumn is my smile, winter is desire

      Spring is my love, summer is fun

      And I long for rain
