Listen to the rain

There was a time when just the sound
of the raindrops was enough to set
us soaring.

You'd grab my hand and we'd run
out to dance, to play, to love
in the rain.

It was a cleansing, a renewal.
Now its just one more hour to
get through,
one more night.

Maybe the next time I'll go
out by myself and let
the rain caress me.

Maybe I'll listen to the thunder
and let it entice my feet to
dance.

Maybe in the flash of lightning
you'll see what you are letting
slip away.

And you'll come to me again...
...in the rain.

Hey lady...

Hopefully this is just a mood? (I blame everything on hormones, which is prolly not that far wrong)

Sad write, but you've still got it...

It's good to see you here again. You oughtta stick around awhile.

(ppppsssttt...have ya made "head" nurse yet? )

Hugs you--I'm wicked as ever.

(big hugggsssssssss) Oh Paula, I'm so happy you're back, dearest friend, it saddens me if this is related to how you're feeling now but know we are all here for you and you are bound to again go singing in the rain! (kiss on cheek) This is a very sadly beautiful comeback, sweet friend, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Paula, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

The title alone would have drawn me in, but knowing you were the author made this an essential read. Your masterful weaves have been missed my friend, excellent work!
