There was something about rain that scared her.
For rain caused her life to fall in disarray,
Nothing would be done as before….
The dark clouds closing in,
She grew up, but this fear of hers,
Never grew away….
On such a rainy day,
The one she cared for,
Her love, her husband,
Was leaving to work.
Her fears since childhood,
Came back to haunt her again…
She worried about wet roads,
And skidding vehicles….
If she could, she would,
Guard him all day and be on his side,
Like the toy she guarded those days during rain….
All those warning of adults about rains,
Those she had heard as a kid,
Came rushing back to her mind…
She almost ran out to stop her husband,
As he stepped out….
Tears too, it seems had stepped out then…
She hugged him from behind,
Her lips moving silently against his shirt,
Making a prayer for his safe return…
He didn’t get it,
But he sure did think,with a smile,
That the rain was beautiful!!!!!!
