Look Outside

See the pouring rain
Each drop is a tear
From someones pain

Look at the rain
As it's pouring down
Beating on the roof
Making a pounding sound

Feel the rain drops
Let them hit your skin
It will help your worries
From way deep with in

Smell that rain
As it's falling in the air
It has it's own fragrance
That it likes to share

Feel the rain
As it falls upon your head
Enjoy it for once
Don't be fussing at it instead

Look at the rain
From another point of view
Each rain drop could be
Someone crying over you

    Love this poem, especially the last stanza. A very simple point of view,
    that is not often thought of. Really like this one! RoseAnn (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
