COLOUR IN THE RAIN
It had suddenly turned dark
The clouds had pulled together in anticipation
It looked angry, only I didn’t know who and what had offended it
It didn’t really seem to care about the whom though
As the stretch of its arms spread far across and it, only, held the authority on where to pour on
It had chosen me!
It raved and poured
It got to my bones
I was shaking all over
I could feel my tears amidst the rain
I couldn’t see or tell the difference.
It had blended so well
They said it would stop raining
‘Soon all grounds will be dried again’, they encouraged
I wondered how.
Eventually it stopped!
Not as suddenly as it started
But it stopped anyways.
There were still traces of it everywhere
And the cold still in my bones
I was still shaking
I closed my eyes and all I could see was the darkness and pain it had brought
I could see the hurt and tears
Not just in my eyes
But in the eyes of the cloud before it couldn’t hold on any more
Eventually, even the cold started to subside slowly
And the heat of love, time and fond memories took over.
Now I close my eyes and I see light and … hope
The darkness and pain tries to force its head
But the heat has built up
And flowers have blossomed
It seemed the rain will never stop
But in the end came the beauty of the flowers
Colour had filled everywhere again
God had smiled on us
The flowers are blossoming
Yes they are!
It’s been four long years
I love you always
