Rain


It was cold that afternoon
Walking, it started to rain
Looking for some shade
But nothing eased the pain

I stared into the road
Stretching in front of me
Then in the rain I cried
Knowing no one would see

The rain poured hard
I was wet all over
I tried to soak sorrow away
Hoped it go with the river

I lied down the grass
Looking up the raindrops
Waiting for it to reach my face
Watching it as it stops

I walked home
Soaked from the rain
I tried to dry myself
But I was still soaked with pain

I knew the rains
Were crying along with me
And I was hoping
That it always will be
