Raindrops fall in cascading grace,
A gentle touch upon this weary place.
Softly cleansing all the pain,
Wiping troubles down the drain.
In the midst of a downpour
I stand, alone and weary
My struggles pelting me like hail
Each drop piercing my soul
But I close my eyes, and listen
And slowly, ever so gently
The rain starts to wash it all away
With each drop that hits my skin,
I feel a new beginning begin.
For struggles here can melt away,
Leaving peace and hope to stay.
My doubts start to slip
Washing off with each heavy splash
Then my sorrows, being cleansed
By the drip-drip-drip of the rain
All my fears, once looming large
Are now carried away
On the back of this unrelenting storm
For every piece of hurt that clung
The rain works harder still
To sweep them clean and make anew
I close my eyes and breathe it in,
The healing water pure as kin.
It whispers secrets in my ear,
Of love, forgiveness, and release from fear.
Raindrops wash away
Struggles and pains of the day
New hope blooms today.
