Umbrella

*I Will Cry* If this world really mattered, Why does it bleed? I could tell you how much I love you, But, that will never heal the pain. I am never at peace. Every day I cry for grace. Every day my tears engrave a large hole. A rich perfume redolent of rain- -the only stain in my soul. What has become of the sun? Where have all the stars gone? I am a sinner! A tapper on the roof, I fell without angel wings! A small ripple that splashed into the pavement crack. I couldn't be saved! I am a lonely bard I have no song to sing. This empty ballad is my home. A feathers against the dying wind- -my only expression. I will cry' Raindrops from the sky. Tears from a simple narrow-minded girl, Water wept into this sorrowful world. I will cry’ A view you can’t erase, A window you can’t shut; Tears you can't brush. I will cry' A river that flows into the night of days. I will cry' like a child, and nobody can take that away. I will cry- once more... No one will ever care, That I cried! PS..... Please remember the smell of earth after rain. by;PD

"Dark days turn to night, teardrops falling like rain, no umbrella can shield, perennial tears of pain." These are lines from my poem, "Lonely Soul", which is very similar to this...I loved this poem so much that I am adding it to my favorites! Excellent poetry, Linda! Beautiful!...Thank you so much for the nice comments! :)
