Children in the Rain

by The_Wingless_Raven 1 review

Just a little poem I wrote while watching the rain fall outside my bedroom window. Not exactly my usual style, but I think it's pretty good.

The rain falls from the sky

Tears of heaven

Caused by lies



Every drop echoing as it falls

Telling the story of heaven's walls

Have you ever wondered why the children sing?

Why they like to play in such a sad thing?

Every drop that touches a child's skin

Will be reborn into heaven again

And the little children will never know

That they bring peace to heaven

Just by stopping the tear's flow

Children feel they must be in the rain

They don't know the reason

But they can feel the sky's pain

The teardrops falling bring them joy

Better than any manifactured toy

Every dancing child

Full of love

Will be reborn as a morning dove

The angels will cheer

For salvation is here

The child who dances in the rain

In the afterlife will feel no pain
