Sorrow of rain

the rain is my motivaton to cry the night away
it is the inspiration for a solitary serenade  

it echoes through the mausoleum of memories in my mind 
and it washes away the pain with the help of father time

the rain reunites the senses and induces tranquility within 
it also intensifies emotions like the ocean against the wind

it offers harmony to humanity  and it calms the savage beast 
it cleanses soul, self and spirit to say the very least 

it renders a mirror into your soul that magnifies your ways 
like the puddle from the rain reflecting the image it displays 

happiness is to day like rain is to tomorrow 
how can we ever know happiness if we never known the sorrow?

    How can you say you can't write like I do? You have your own unique style which I dearly appreciate and the message is always so complete. The last two lines here just blow me away. So very special John. Never underestimate what you write my friend! :)
