Raindrops And Thunder



Dear rain,

I have been waiting for you.
And finally, you are here in my midst.
I longed for you and you came…
You must have heard the faint cries in my heart.
The teardrops from heaven are beautiful.
How you wash the earth is sublime.

I remember when I was a little girl,
The sound of thunder terrified me.
And when the sky threatened to roar,
I immediately covered my innocent little ears.
And then I would feel safe,
Temporarily deaf from its wrath.

But things have changed…
The anger from the clouds no longer scared me.
Maybe because there really is nothing to be afraid of.
Maybe because I have grown.
Or maybe because I haven’t.
That’s possible, right?
I have aged,
But I have not really grown up.

Water from the sky,
Please continue to pour down…

You are very much welcome.

~I
