Raindrops and Heartbeats

Today I stood and watched the rain fall.

It felt like I was truly at peace.

I was alone.

At first, each drop was just a blur.

Then I looked harder and found a miracle.

Within each drop I saw a glimmer.

A glimmer of hope.

Those raindrops sparkled as the sun shone.

The sun gave me warmth.

It showed me Love.

Now the raindrops fall so slowly.

One by one.

When I see the raindrops fall so gracefully

I see my family.

I see my friends.

I see my life.

My life in which my heart is full of warmth.

It is the people I Love that keep me alive.

It is they who keep my heart

Beating…
