I wish I was the rain

I wish I was the rain

A Poem by Xuannu5810

Some times I wish I was the rain.

I would fall and touch those around me

Permeating all the corners that they hide from the world

Keeping them silent company when no one else will..

I would fall and give life to plants

Making them bloom in beautiful arrays 

And give the world something to smile about

I would pour and make people grow closer

Cuddling under a thick blanket with 

Nothing more than the pitter-patter of my drops

And the heartbeat of the one they love.

I would be the companion to the lost and lonely

Giving them a voice to listen to when there is no one else.

Telling them that after their storm the sun will again rise.


Sometimes I wish I was the rain.

I could disappear but never be forgotten.

I would become a presence in a memory,

A desire of a person, a stamp upon nature.

I would be the misery to struggling characters,

The beginning of the rebirth of time.

I would be the romance to young couples

And the temptation to every child.

I would be so many things at any one moment

Yet in another, I would be nothing at all,

A molecule in a constant cycle of life.

 I would fall and pour till there was nothing left,

Then without any remorse, I would move on

And assist others who needed me.

A Background to the creative, a tempest to the wicked.

I would be all this and more

A never-ending entity,

Rain, so peaceful and calming, at times. Food for thought and food for things that grow on earth.
