I brought an umbrella, though it wasn't raining.. (challenge)

Hmmmm, hazy, hot, and humid..
Said the weatherman, but no rain..
I stuck my head out the door, it was clear
but I brought my umbrella, just the same

I made my way down the street
much to the chagrin of those who watched as I passed by..
I am sure they thought me a fool, but I didn’t care..
I just knew, I could feel it.. today it would rain..

Sometimes I listen, when I hear that still small voice
you know the one, the one that gnaws way down deep..
today I heard the soft whispers of a coming rain
and thought it wise to be prepared.

I stood waiting for the bus..
The sun beating down on my neck..
A bead of sweat gathered around my brow
and sank under the unforgiven sun.

I didn’t see her at first as I stood melting away
She stood off to the side, hiding, sobbing softly
I moved closer, and whispered in asking, why?…
bad day she started, as her tears fell like rain..

I pulled out my umbrella, and opened it for her
offering it’s broad shelter to her trembling hands..
out of the blazing noon sun and life’s hard rain
together under my umbrella, a friendship began.

Sometimes I listen, when I hear that still small voice
you know, the one that gnaws way down deep..
today I heard the soft whispers of a coming rain
and thought it wise to listen…

I brought an umbrella, though it wasn't raining.. (challenge)
