The Heart’s Rain


All alone she sat across the room, quiet and busy

Seemingly in a world all her own

No one even noticed….

….And then there it was

It was small and went unnoticed

But it wasn’t alone…

It was followed by first one, then another…

And soon there were many

What was it that brought tears to her eyes?

What was it that made warm salty drops fall like rain?

Loneliness, hurt, sadness, sorrow?

No one could say for sure

But as surely as night follows day came the questions

Empty, shallow questions—not of concern but curiosty

Those who had passed her by a hundred times or more

Now stopped to inquire

“What’s wrong..can I help?

The tears stopped

The questions went unanswered

And once again she smiled

And who will ever know why the rains came?
