Rain Down

During my 15 minutes of writing last night I focused on writing a rough draft of a poem. Here it is.

Rain Down

Rain down, rain down
cleanse me from my sins
wash away the pain and hurt
and break the chains I'm grasping
free me to forgive.

Rain down, rain down
soothe my soul and heal my heart
open me heart to find forgiveness
for a friend, a cousin
who caused me pain
it's time to nourish the family tree.

Rain down, rain down
Renew my spirit
I long for the innocence childhood brings
where puddle jumping in green galoshes
brings joy after the spring rain

Rain down, rain down
on me.
