Love and Rain

Walking the fine line
Between love and rain
As it gently falls
To soothe the ache
In your fragile soul
Where the crack still shows
Where time always heals
And faith often grows
Walk with me
Tell me all about it
As we make our way
Between drops of rain
And while you explain
Let me hold your hand
Let me understand
For a moment, please
Let me really see
Who you are beneath
Where you can’t be loved
Where you try to run
Towards the calm design
Your beautiful mind
Don’t hide behind
A heart concealed
From all you dare
And all you feel
For a moment, please
Let’s just be real
In the elegant release
Of love and rain
Where your light shines through
To show the way
As I call your name
It’s ok
I’ll watch from my window
Perfect view
I won’t let you fall
Just believe
Remember to breathe
It shouldn’t be so hard
To find the essence
And then discard
What no longer fits
And let what remains
Be cleansed
My friend
…by love and rain

Artist's Description

This poem has come to take on an entirely different meaning for me than when I had originally written it.

Whenever I would read this, I would always picture the grounds of the apartment complex I moved into many years ago when I was going through a major life change. It was raining the day that I moved in to that very special apartment, and although that’s not what inspired this write, the memory of that day has always seemed to lend itself to my personal visual of this piece.

In the time I lived there, I grew from the person who needed comfort into the one who could give it. Who came to know what no longer fit, and found the courage to discard it. I grew from one side of this poem to the other.

And so, with gratitude, I dedicate this to a very special woman named Barb.
