A White Dove In The Rain

A White Dove In The Rain

A rain storm came to visit me while I tried to sleep,
My ears heard it and so my eyes took a long peep.
Drops of moisten water dropping down from above,
A frightened bird under my porch, it was a white dove.

Shaken from thunder storm noises it came to hide,
Under the protection of my roof and by my side.
We stared at each other knowing we both were alone,
I calmly said some kind words as I lowered my tone.

It spoke to me in coo sounds of its own as it was pleased,
She had lost its mate and my wife too had long been deceased.
A hand full of bread I fed it as we stayed there all night,
We communicated of our loneliness until things were right.

She flapped her wings to let me know she understood,
And to let me know she was thankful for the good food.
Suddenly she flew and landed on my shoulder as I paced,
We looked at each other with tears as we were face to face.

I sat down for a while as our conversation continued on,
Then she was finished telling her problems and she was gone.
The rain stopped for a little while as she circled around,
That white dove looked at me real happy that me she had found.

All week long the forecast calls for thunderstorm weather,
I hope my friend returns again to let dry all of her feathers.
How sweet of her to listen to my heart as I often cry alone,
Wished she was a true friend that I could call on the phone.

It’s almost daylight and it is time for me get back inside,
There are so many problems and to solve them I must decide.
Maybe tomorrow I shall step outside and wait for the rain,
Heaven might repeat the event that eased all of my pain.

Her beauty reminded me of my beautiful loving caring wife,
And I wonder if she came back to me in a white dove’s body’s life.
Maybe it wasn’t, but I’ve found a friend even if it’s for one night,
Telling me to keep on living and to make all my choices right.
