The Rain

Sometimes I wonder
Will it be sunny every day?
Will the cosmos run under 
A cool distant haze?
Can mistakes be made
And rectified quickly?
Will stronger ones always 
Act that much more swiftly?
With voices raised
The heart feels the shame
Of a terrible mistake
That’s now lost in the rain
It washes the ugliness
That the night’s events brought
And cleans out the air
That the two roommates sought
You’re so much stronger 
Than me can’t you see?
The kindness and love 
In your heart’s blinded me
You’re soothing and comforting
Just to the touch
I wish I could offer
Even half as much
But I want you to know
And I’m making this clear
That after last night
I have nothing to fear
For the rain makes puddles
And when they appear
I see in my vision
It washes away tears…
