I sit still in heavy showers
Thinking by myself for hours
The rain it keeps me company
Soothing all that’s wounded me.
Empty thoughts enter my mind
I forget all that’s been unkind
And drift away to another place
While tears of rain run down my face.
I am not worried, I am still
Lost in the moment, a total thrill
Nothing enters and nothing escapes
Waiting to see what this moment creates.
I am here and satisfied
I didn’t know but still I tried
As the rain came down upon me
And brought back my security.
