Water's Comfort - Poem by Onex Declar

The water falls onto my face
Shedding down like tears
The water falls upon my soul
Like a knife that sears

The water comes like the day
Full of life and dread
Some say it's good for the soul
Others say it can leave you dead

The water comes at you softly
Whispering in your ear
A tale of how the world would sound
If all we did was hear

Those who grasp a glimpse of this
Are bound to it forever
As will their empty souls
Through all kinds of weather

Now you may look at the water
As if it's just there
But make sure you give respect
Or else I warn you to beware

It could come as a gift
Or as a curse
Because if you treat it well
You'll make it to this verse
