Rain on my Soul

dragging each step, and walked away…
without looking back, the heart did stay

heavy as the dark clouds in the sky
bereavement within, nothing can deny

tears start to fall… like rain on my soul
melting in pieces, never again be whole

beacon the day of joys and smiles
now shadowed with distance in miles

emptiness swallowed into darkened deep
a lonesome dream in a long night sleep

in the stillness of shivering coldness
wanting the warm embrace of tenderness

the rain never ends…never stops falling
days with tears behind smiles pretending

wished my steps back, have you again
nailed on the ground i feared the pain

rain on my soul…i am soaked, drenching
in the coldness, i will just be here waiting.
