The Rain

Have you ever stood outside
In the pouring rain
Looked at the sky
The woods
The world
And smiled
Not because of anything
Definite
But because
Of everything

Have you ever felt
Each drop
Hit your head
Your hand
Your world
Pitter-pattering
With the rhythm
Of hope

Have you ever seen
The droplets
Cling to the tips
Of your eyelashes
Glistening
In the light
That somehow penetrates
The clouds

Have you ever thought
That the raindrops were tears
Of sadness
And hope
That the world was crying
Around you
And maybe your problems
Are small
Don’t really matter

Have you ever been thankful
Of the rain
Because maybe
It helped you fit in
Helped you realize
You do belong
In this crazy
Messed up
Amazing world
If the world can cry
Then so can you

Have you ever heard
The music of the rain
And thought
It was perfection
Thought maybe
Your silence
Was the harmony
That was always missing
And maybe
Because you live
And breathe
And love
That this music
Lives
Is deeply
Intertwined
Into your
soul
