It did rain,

Like I wanted to:

God listend to my prayers.

Tonight I,

Stood watching the sky,

And saw only God's mercy.

And the smiles,

That lit up my heart,

Also brightened everything.

May I get,

What I have longed for,

All along, all these years.

O my God,

Let peace and joy rain,

And drench me with love again.

I have got,

Everything O God,

Now give the one whom I love.

The green leaf,

And the cleansed flower,

See how they too love to bloom.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Produced on the 19th of December 2008, in Karachi, Pakistan. Yesterday, in my poem, GLIMMER OF HOPE...I prayed for rain...and it rained heavily in the afternoon, evening and afterwards, sometimes heavily and sometimes like a drizzle...but watching it rain it was as if God Almighty has answered my prayers. This poem is an extension of the thoughts that flooded my heart and mind this dawn and have been written down here.
