Our Raindance

Our Raindance

A Poem by Michael G. Smith

I wrote this when I was missing my wife.


What if I said
“Just forget about everything you did”?
Flung open the door
And pulled you out... onto the porch instead!


Out into the warm, refreshing rain!
Not a thought, not a doubt!
Just partake of its praise…
And feel its drops, the dews upon your skin!


It makes me feel so alive!
So clean and so pure
How about you? Let’s stop thinking first and be doing!
Now that we are both right here


You are always working so very hard, and I’m so far, far away from you
Please! Please! Just don’t think this time
Because, right now…
In this frozen blissful moment…you are completely mine!


Take the step..
And join me...in this...joy
In this…harmony, in this... rain dance


Grasp my hand
And close your beautiful brown eyes…
And maybe for an instant
All the worries, can be left behind


To revel, now, in our new found unity of glory
Our arms, like wings to extend
And run, and run, and run
And maybe, just maybe if we pretend


We cannot only fly, but we will soar!
…Into the heavens at twilight
Then…when we finish our descent
You and I, we'll be all right


Then, each time
We find ourselves apart
We’ll close our eyes…and imagine
"Our Raindance” inside forevermore

And the harmony of our hearts we can explore
