Softly Falling Rain


Tiny splatters

I hear the raindrops fall

like teardrops they cascade

along my window pane


soft gentle rain

like a sweet caress

running down my cheeks

as I look up into the leaden sky

rain 2

I look up toward the rain

seeing the silvery gray above

a fine curtain of rain

closing the world from me


rain ever so soft and gentle

I watch as the raindrops

splash against my window

wondering if they bring greetings to me


perhaps someone once dear to me

sends me love

as raindrops keep tapping

to say I love you

rain 2

rain brings daydreams

in a world now wet and shiny

waiting for the clouds to part

and for rainbows to start


each raindrop I greet

as it courses down the window pane

bringing me precious memories

from the clouds in the sky above

rain 2

and so I sit by my window

looking out into the rain

I hear gentle rainy day music

listening to it drip, drip, drip

    Fortunately it has stopped raining here, for the moment. I must admit that I didn’t see rain in this way when I was outside working in it the other day, but when watching it from indoors it is exactly as you describe here.
