Thoughts on a Rainy Day
Rain, Rain go away
Come again another day.
While you are here though
I need to feel you;
Just keep pouring on me while
I drain myself of some misery and sorrow.
As the rain kisses my nose
I smile and think that there is no rhyme or reason
to feeling this overwhelming sense of guilt
that I sense coming on.
Guilty that I could not do this or that, a feeling of
Sometimes I even feel guilty that I am in a good, fun
mood when I should maybe be more focused and serious
Right now I'm having a moment that tells me to take
the day by its tails and shake all that guilt away
and my thoughts of the what, where, why and when
of what I should do with the rest of my day.
I can start to be a better person; to not beat myself
up over things that are so trivial, but as trivial as
they may seem, aren't those little things sometimes more
significant in the course of a day than all the other major
issues of this world we live in.
Happy tears form in my eyes over the silliest things or maybe from recent
weddings, graduations but as of recent, the tears have been more sad, so
in between my prayers to the Lord that nurtures me while I mourn
a recent loss, he said a little rain must fall now and then.
I now know that those words will lead me to a better place, a place
that is always sunny above me and will give me a kick when I am
feeling overwhelmed or down in the dumps.
