Life is Like a Raindrop

imagesOne day my husband came to me

And said “you need to blog”

“And what is it I’ll write about?

Our life within the fog?”

*****

Throughout the weeks, the stories came

The pictures of my life

A world of raindrops all around

Through happiness and strife

*****

Our life is like a raindrop

It’s here and then it leaves

And like the human spirit

It stretches and it breathes

*****

Like life, it’s temporary

Unpredictable, as well

It didn’t know where it would land

The morning that it fell

*****

A raindrop is a drifting soul

Though often, joined by more

A single drop gets overwhelmed

When skies begin to pour

*****

Raindrops fade so quickly

As often do our pains

But when the drops keep falling

We are deluged by our chains

*****

A raindrop’s like a person

Reflecting in the sun

Bringing beauty to a dying world

And hope, if just to one

*****

Our lives are ever-changing

As is a falling drop

One day they last forever

Then suddenly, they stop

*****

Raindrops sooth or they can slap

Depending on the season

But when the rainbow finally shines

We understand the reason

*****

Some will love them, some will not

But drops will fall, no matter

Raindrops heal a dried-up land

And barren souls that shatter

*****

I thank the Lord for raindrops

They’re cursed and they are blessed

Some make us suffer greatly

Others fall to help us rest

*****

Life is like a raindrop

It’s beautiful, you see

Some stay caught inside a cloud,

While others are set free

*****

I want my drop to matter

To leave a mark, somehow

Give hope unto the hopeless

Tomorrow, if not now

*****

Every raindrop has a cause

A purpose and a goal

And like the human spirit

It’s an ever-searching soul

*****

A raindrop can be innocent

Until it hits the ground

For then the drop gets trampled

And only mud is found

*****

A tiny raindrop on our tongue

Can bring a moments hope

And get us to tomorrow

Where we’re sure to better cope

*****

Without the rain, the world would end

As would our lives, you know

For lives are like a raindrop

They will come and they will go

*****

Raindrops make the rivers

And the puddles where we play

And, like our lives, the rains that fall

Will, one day, fade away

*****

Try to take the rainfall

And hold it in your hand

The tiny pool will seep away

For life is shifting sand

*****

If you could see a raindrop

Resting, perfect, on your finger

It would whisper, “Child, endure”

For challenges won’t linger

*****

I write within the raindrop

Reflecting in its bubble

For as I write in Heaven’s tears

I pen away the trouble

*****
