Rain

When the rain fell down
I knew right then.
You were lost to me,
My most precious friend.

You cared and sheltered,
When times were tough.
Your advice was good,
When things looked rough.

But as you lay there,
Peaceful and still.
You've made a hole,
I'll never fill.

You were always my tree,
When the wind blew strong.
You were always there,
When i did things wrong.

Now you're quiet,
You don't speak a sound.
And i am the one,
With my feet on the ground.

Your smile's disappeared,
I miss it so much.
I miss all your love,
And your gentle touch.

So I'll hold onto your hand,
If you keep your head high.
I know it hurts, love,
But for me, please try.

Hello Ella, liked your poem.  Nice use of rhyme.

 A life isn't significant except for its impact on other lives.

Oh, Ella, tears.  So sad.  So sad.

Wow... I think my heart jumped into my throat on this one... you know?  That little feeling you get like a vacume has just built up in your throat right before you cry?  Beautiful.. wonderful.. marevelous... excellent.. AWESOME! (And several other words I can't spell) =)  

I'd kill for a friend such as the one you singing too here... or a friend like you. ;-)

A great way to start off the day, and now off to work I go.



 "The storm rises up when the shadows descend
every beat of my heart every day without end
I will stand like a rock I will bend till I break
till theres no more to give if thats what it takes
I will risk everything I will fight I will bleed
I will lay down my life if thats what you need
every second I live thats the promise I make"

I have no idea who wrote this... tell me if you know. =)
