“Raindrops and Tears”
completed on 6.9.12

not sure how this will trickle out
if you will soak it up
or wish these words would just evaporate

so i’ll let it all pour out
and hope you absorb my thoughts
rather than leave them to dry up

the things i have to say
i hope they make it rain
but only as a sun shower
’cause i can’t stand to be
the cause of black clouds hanging over you

what i have to do will cause some tears
but the only thing i’ll ever want
is for them to make us blossom and grow

even though i have to go
i’ll never let you drown
i’ll be the currents pushing the storms away
and the life raft always keeping you afloat

something’s moving inside me
tugging at my heart strings
i can feel you in the tear running down my cheek
you’re in the air that my lungs breathe
and the reason i’ve been feeling incomplete

you’re the books on the shelf just out of reach
you’re the change i leave under my seat
you’re the air i absent-mindedly breathe
you’re the first thing i take for granted
but you’re still reaching out to me

i always put myself first
it’s the most unhealthy relationship
i listen to all the wrong things
while you’re always supporting me
i’ve written off friends that speak to me
as rarely as i reach out to you
yet you haven’t given up on me

i know you’re always listening
so please accept my apology
let the world see your love through my smile
make me a better person
so i can be part of the change this world needs
