Drops Of Water - Poem by Randy McClave

Raindrops falling upon my head

I could count them one after another

So weak and timid when they fall alone

But so powerful, when they join each other.

As one raindrop will fill a puddle

Two raindrops will fill a sea

Three raindrops will fill an ocean

Four raindrops will drown, both you and me.


I saw a woman who was sadly crying

I watched the tears come down her cheek

I then watched her sadness become a smile

Though she found the comfort that she did seek.

As one teardrop will clear your mind

Two teardrops will cleanse your soul

Three teardrops will clear your memory

Four teardrops, and you will let anyone go.


I walked upon the morning lawn

And a welcomed surprise came upon my feet

Dampness was left upon the glistening plants

Once again mother nature had left that treat

As one dewdrop will moisten a blade of grass

Two dewdrops will tease a flower

Three dewdrops will feed a plant

Four dewdrops will tempt a lawn for a shower.


Drops of water as they come into our life

Some in volume, but then someone at a time

Sometimes they seem the question to an answer

Or maybe a riddle and that would be the only sign

As one drop is so that we will take notice

Two drops to make sure that we are aware

Three drops so we will pay close attention

Four drops to know that they are there.

    This poem flows beautifully
    Love these lines:
    As one dropp is so that we will take notice
    Two drops to make sure that we are aware
    Three drops so we will pay close attention
    Four drops to know, that they are there
