389 Rain [05 March 2001]

giver of life
turn your face
towards the coolness
as it falls from the sky
feel it caress your face
down your chest
feel it as if it were I
touching you
caressing the line of your jaw
fingers running down your neck
and under your shirt
my hands spreading across your chest
feel the power of its force
as it cleanses your body
imagine that everywhere
the rain soothes your skin
that I am there as well
drink of the rain
as you would of me
let it surround you
take from its downpour
the gift of my love
let it wash away your fears
and drown your pain
as I would do
if I could hold you
in my embrace
so every time it rains
think of me
as I am of the rain
I am the wild lightning
I am the deep thunder
I am the rain
