IT RAINS
(dedicated to Gramma)
today it rains
grief and sorrow
wishing for
a brighter tomorrow
knowing one day
the rain will cease
I hold on
grasping for peace
my tears fall down
cleansing my soul
falling from
a staring hole
the salt burns me
when it heals
I cry out
trying not to feel
I can't hide the pain
it's fresh in my mind
I see the pictures
so I want to be blind
I was sleeping in her arms
she was taken from me
I awoke alone
she was finally free
thankful to God
she has no more pains
but I stand here missing her
for here it rains.
