Oh, How I Wish It Would Rain

Oh, How I Wish It Would Rain

Looking out from my old car’s window I see the rain coming down,
And I let the glass roll down so that my face can feel the water droplets.
They immediately cleanse the tears that have buried themselves on my skin,
I left them there as reminders of a traumatic fear that I am now alone once more.

Sweet is the taste from the clouds that I lavishly taste with my lips and tongue,
While my eyes gaze at a couple that is screaming happily as they hold hands.
I smile at the memories of my own walking in the rain with my loving wife,
But only this time my tears are washed away as they blend in nicely.

On the radio I hear a favorite song of ours,“Oh, How I Wish It Would Rain.”
Boy, my heart begins to hum to the tune of the words that makes so much sense.
I remember back to the time I was holding her so gently next to a tree,
And I kissed her wet lips as the cars passed by and honked their approval.

My hand waves to the two love birds that are embracing for warmth and I say,
“I have a tarp in the trunk of my car if you would like, or I can give you a lift!”
They smile with no words, but I still reach in the back and I give them the tarp,
And before I drive away I loudly say,” It’s yours to keep, you two are beautiful!"

These two wonderful creatures wave at me as they cover themselves and wave,
Little do they know that in my heart I am thanking them for the memories.
As I drive slowly the tires of my car purposely splatters them with more water,
They scream again and they politely shout to me,’ Thank you, we love you too!"

My swelled eyes relate a message to my heart and I am enjoying this rainy day,
Happiness in tears runs down my cheeks as my face sticks out from the window.
That magical rain blends my tears, sooths my fears, and awakens my youth,
Slowly I cruise around the block and I return to get one more memorial look.

There they are, huddled under my tarp and loving every passing moment,
They know that I have come back a second time and they take a peak at me.
My face turns red because I am embarrassed but I feel like saying something."
After staring at my steering wheel I shout, “Okay, this time I will be gone!”

I wanted to stay, but I also envisioned myself many years earlier and I smiled,
They need their privacy for a romantic encounter and I have my memories.
What a thrill my mind has experience once more and I don’t have to hide it,
Because the magic rain is pouring in my head,“Oh, How I Wish It Would Rain”.
