"everything happens for a reason"


A ripple in the water,
As a tear falls from my eye.
I know I was wrong
And I feel that I don’t know why.

A ripple in the water,
As I watch more tears fall.
I want to say I am sorry
But I’m too scared to call.

A ripple in the water,
As it begins to rain.
It covers up my tears
And washes up the pain.

A ripple in the water,
As it pours from the sky.
I sit drenched in rain and tears
Feeling like this rain is my goodbye.

A ripple in the water,
As the rain begins to slow.
I wonder what to say to you
Even though you know.
A ripple in the water,
As a tear fell from my eye.
I see you and smile.
There is no more dark cloud in my sky.

This piece was written in Creative Writing class as a mid-term. The poem options were phrases and I chose "a ripple in the water." It was just how I was feeling at the time.
