I know your nights are lonely and cold
And I know your days are gray,
The once brilliant promise of sun
Has turned to a downpour of dark rain.
May the laws of nature be suspended
That you may feel me near
And even though you cannot see me
I share your pain, I feel your fear.
Though you feel the crimson kiss of sorrow
And your tears are all you know,
Pause for a moment and know that on your darkest days
My tears stain your windows.
Written during a rain storm in which I imagined that the rain was a sad woman weeping for the one she left behind.
