Healing Rain

Written by: Grace Valentine

The rain fell upon me
It revealed my destiny
My pain was washed away
My heart would never again sway
Yet why do I feel the way I do?
Why do I search for something new?

At night, my heart weighs me down
Endless stars I try to count
It feels like I have lost my aim
The only thing left with me is my name

I gently close my eyelids once again
I searched for the rain that once washed away my pain
It had now dried up
Leaving me hurting, with none to fill my cup
I longed for restoration
But sunk deeper into desperation

It felt like a storm inside my head
Before me, both faith and fear were laid
Was there a choice for me?
Would my eyes be able to see?
I saw myself falling
My knees got weak and I felt like crawling

I searched for an open door
A door that would end my heart's war
My lips could utter no more
My spirit would not soar
I shut my eyes tightly and kept my pace
As darkness crept in, I saw myself in another phase

There was a bright light shining
A voice of hope within me whispering
I found a way
My burdens, I had to lay
The rain washed away all my pain
And there I saw my destiny
A destiny of hope and eternity
