If I Was the Rain

If I was the rain
I would be wary of friends like me,
one of those fair weather friends
that curse my unexpected arrival on inopportune days
but cajoled and then praised when I come when needed.
Is it wrong for me to feel used
when I am welcomed in the one and shunned in the next?
At sad times I'm told I contribute to the pain,
but then, a work of wonder as I meander on the window
or a tympany of pitter-patter on the roof.
I would just want to be me, alone and blue
if I was the rain...

    Good metaphor, Craig. Applies to many things,no? I will say that in West Texas you'd always be welcome, even if ungrammatical.

    Listening to the pitter patter of rain in the quiet of the night is so therapeutic.....so if you were rain....you were happy because you were able to be yourself...then that would be a good sound landing on the rooftops...great poem....Shaz
