Tears in the Rain – A Poem by Walt Page

Capture

A poem by Walt Page: The Tennessee Poet

Softly falling rain
Trickles down your face

The bright glow of lightning
Lights a summer night

The soft moans of the wind through the leaves
The sky is shedding tears

Raindrops splashing all around you
Puddles everywhere

The beauty of a summer storm
Surrounds you with renewal

If you look closely you can see
Tears in the rain

The storm passes quickly
The air is sweet

The memories of yesterday
Become the hopes of tomorrow

The sadness will pass
Like tears in the rain

  1. The finale of the poem is thoughtfully emphatic.
    “The memories of yesterday
    Become the hopes of tomorrow
    The sadness will pass
    Like tears in the rain”
