Raindrops

Mama sent me Raindrops from Heaven,

I knew she did when I was seven.


The coolness of water filled drops,

Soothes my hurts—so the pain stops.


Let it rain and pour,

For I will cry no more.


Most of my family is in Heaven now,

I know it is beautiful---WOW!


Raindrops are medicine to my soul,

Cleansing to make me whole.


As the little gifts of water danced on my face,

I ran to keep up the pace.


For those little wet kisses from Mama without a letter,

Made my boo-boos all better.


Inundated with precious H2O kisses,

Is what my heart misses.


I look up to Heaven and there is no sound,

Just pellets soaking the ground.


Love you Raindrops—I will keep you around,

Kiss my purple roses as you fall down.
