Rain

This poem came to me one day while I was watching it rain, and listening to the radio. It is very true in our lives that we must choose for ourselves how to live, and which song to sing, be it happy or sad. I like to think I choose to sing a happy song, of life and laughter. But, of course, sometimes life chooses for us also.


I can hear the rain
Softly falling down
each drop a symphony of sound
It Makes me think
About what a feel inside

It can sound just like a sad song with a slow beat
the kind that makes me daydream
and feel sad and sigh
as I think of what might of been or could be in my life

Or maybe it is a happy song that brings back sweet memories
tender thoughts and special smiles
thinking of someone who makes my heart beat faster
and my laughter ring with happiness and joy

Or maybe it is a love song
with sweet and soft lyrics
tender, romantic and sensual
that makes me think of dancing in the rain

I need to decide which song
is the one I’m hearing
which music soothes my soul
and which song I want to sing along with

Sometimes, I have to choose a song
and sometimes the song just chooses me.

  2. Great poem, Camila. Doesn't matter if it is life or yourself who chose it, because it enables us to really feel good.
