Came the Falling Rain

Came the Falling Rain in Torrents …

The rain came and fell,

it fell in torrents,

reminding me of the tears,

that fell when you went away

and I was alone all those years.

Now watching the rain coming down,

I see mists of fog rising

and I wonder where you are.

I can imagine your life,

as a virtual spree,

you were never one to worry,

you were never one to love –

but you captured my heart.

I know it wasn’t very smart,

to offer it to you,

then you crushed it beneath your feet,

simply went on your way,

but you left me here to stay,

broken and useless –

to cry tear after tear.

Everything around me,

reminds me of you,

but I cannot go on,

then there would be nothing –

nothing of you at all.

These tears are the only souvenirs,

you left behind,

how I wish they weren’t mine,

the years have held me caged,

caged while your love still surrounds me

and the rain keeps falling.

The fog all about

and I wait for a sign,

that finally I’ll be free,

free from your love

and I’ll be able to go on.

Then a shadow appeared,

there beside me,

it looked so much like an angel,

the rays of the sun,

had begun to shine,

they cleansed my soul,

the rain had washed,

the pain away

and as a rainbow crossed the sky.

I knew that you would remain a memory,

but I could now go on,

hoping to find a new love –

who would love me right from the start.
