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.

‘Raindrops are medicine to my soul’—This is so heart touching. I loved your expressions Bobbi. Seems so true to have a connection, with those who are not around, through the raindrops.

Thank you for sharing this beautiful piece.

Hey Bobbi,

You should include that intro for us all to read too.

It doesn't show up on the article.

A wonderful piece of work.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on May 10, 2021:

Bobbi,

Your poem, " Mama's Raindrops" is outstanding!!

It is filled with happiness as a little girl deals with so much pain inside her heart.

That first line sets the scene. Then your words just burst with emotion.

I can picture her running in the rain wanting to feel every last drop.

To feel those kisses from Momma.

Then the sadness at the end, but she knows the raindrops will protect her.

This is an awesome poem. Great job!

I will post a link in the article.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on May 10, 2021:

Most of my family is also in heaven. I like the thought of raindrops being filled with kisses from above. Your poem is lovely, Barbara.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on May 10, 2021:

I'm back from vacation and ready to resume my normal activities, and I'm sure happy this one popped up. This brought tears to my eyes, Bobbi! It was absolutely beautiful. I'll remember this the next time it rains. Thank you for the good feelings, my friend.
