A Rainy Day Poem

I'm tired today and don't know why.

There's nothing I can blame.

The lime-green leaves outside my door

Look darker in the rain.

It's midday here as I look out

Yet, seems as though near dusk.

I'm tired today.  I think I'll nap.

My thoughts have turned to mush.

Once I loved these rainy days

When we would stay inside,

And share our own sweet secrets here,

Those love words and those sighs.

I'm tired today and I feel sad.

I don't know why I do.

It could be that these rainy days,

Remind my heart of you.

Dear Jessica

Maywe it was destined for me to read this touching poem of yours today...it brought tears to my eyes in a way I think you will understand.

From the beautiful painting through the music "Always on my mind" to the last line of your poem ("remind my heart of you") deep inside I feel the rain - and the pain of losing a loved one...

Thank you for sharing more than just this poem...
