Dancing In the Rain
Raindrops rolling down my cheeks,
Rainbows of leaves swirling at my feet,
I throw back my head, jump and run,
Rain-dancing away the cursed sun.
I twirl and spin, dancing around,
Rain patters harder with every bound,
Spinning in circles until I fall down,
The drumming rain makes a musical sound.
Then salty drops meet my fresh rain,
As my heart spills out locked away feelings,
Cob-webby memories running through my mind,
Distant and happy, faded with time.
I miss the times when we would play,
And how you used to hug me tight and say,
I love you so much my baby girl.
Those moments were bliss to a little toddler with curls.
I swallow back my sputtering sadness,
And dance again with renewed gladness,
Hoping, while pushing away the pain,
That you can see me dancing in the rain.
