The Rain On My Window

I laid on my bed,
And looked out through the window glass.
The sun vanished,
And down came the rain really fast.

I started to feel real gloomy,
And I wanted to get mad.
However, a smile came to me,
And I no longer was sad.

The rain pelted the roof,
As I heard the loud thunder.
Then a feeling came over me,
As I started to wonder.

I jumped out of bed,
And headed to the door.
My feet felt cold,
As they walked on the floor.

As I opened the door,
The rain fell on my face.
Happiness was with me,
And I was very amazed.

The rain reached deep inside of me,
As there I stood.
Somehow it had changed me,
Into a wonderful mood.

My problems were forgotten,
While the rain dripped off me.
It brought back wonderful memories,
Of the person I used to be.

I stepped outside,
Not fearing the thunder and lighting.
It was like a fireworks display,
And it no longer was frightening.

A youthful feeling,
Came to my aide.
There was a change coming,
And no longer in bed did I laid.

I felt a new purpose,
My heart felt like that of a child.
The brain suddenly awaken,
As the ideas made me act wild.

I went back inside,
And dried myself with a towel.
My emotions were so tempting,
As I let out a wolves howl.

The rain had reached deep inside me,
As there I stood.
Somehow it had changed me,
Into a wonderful youthful new mood.

Artist's Description

I still remember the feeling of walking in the rain and there were no worries about getting sick, or catching a disease. Well, it rained the other day after a very long while and I went outside, boy, what a wonderful feeling came over me. An expression of those lost moments are captured again in this poem. Very basic words, but my emotions really made me feel young again.
