Raindrops in Life: A Poem
“I always like walking in the rain, so no one can see me crying.” ― Charles Chaplin
Raindrops fall out of the sky
And may sometimes land on you or I
Bringing joy or bringing tears
The more we learn throughout the years.
They fall to the ground far below
With warmth and water where ever they go
To feed the soil and plants alike
Yet some are held back by a dyke.
The barrier may be made of stone
Or it may reside in your heart alone
Keeping out the new fallen rain
When it comes to ease all of our pain.
A drop that goes where no one else can go
Is it joy or pain, only you can know
What enters into your unseen reason
As it falls again with each new season.
A new start for you and seeds
Or something else that fills your needs
To open up the hurt inside
And fill you once again with pride.
What about those lonely tears
That fall for days or months or years
Are the raindrops from the sky above
Or teardrops for that long lost love?
Do your tears come from the rain
Bringing out your hurt and pain
From the love you had but lost
When your two paths no longer crossed.
From deep within there comes a need
That sways as gentle as a reed
One minute happy another sad
Longing for the love you had.
New hope will one day bloom within
That gives you power to fight and win
As daylight chases dark away
The teardrops will be held at bay.
When raindrops fall on newborn seeds
Your heart no longer feels the need
To mourn the love you once lost
Because its done, you paid the cost.
Your heart moves on to love and grow
The hurt still lingers far below
Yet each new day helps you to feel
A growth within that's new and real.
