The rain falls tonight,

sounds like angels tap dancing,

dancing with all their might.

I love the sound of rain.

The rain falls from the sky,

drops of water leaving their mark,

drops that can mystify.

I love the feel of the rain.

The rain falls in the darkness,

falling on those souls that can't be seen,

those souls that choose to transgress.

I love the smell of the rain.

The rain falls into a time forgotten,

a time when men need to be men,

a time where we live a life long rerun.

I love the presence of rain.
