Prayer for Rain

Prayer for Rain

Yet another moon wanes
And goodbyes and forgiveness still won’t pass these lips.

So I pray for the rain to come wash this memory away.

When the home of your hopes becomes but a forest of toppling trees,
Sitting in the destruction leaves the obviousness of those shallow roots, raw in the heart.

So I pray for the rain to come wash this memory away.

If building from this fallen wood could make all anew,
There would be a thousand abiding temples innate in all of us, built solely on faith.

So I pray for the rain to come wash this memory away.

And when there is nothing left to walk from, walk to, start again, or depart for new,
Will goodbyes and forgiveness pass these lips,
Will raw hearts be eased and mended,
Will sanctuaries stand on immortal ground…

Will my prayers for rain come wash this memory away.

    Rain can’t wash what’s in your heart. Because our skin covers it.

      Agreed! Elijah (The Prophet)!

      The heart holds the Truth. So in this case, I should say the memory I speak of sits in the mind, be that in false expectation and/or false ghosts. Sometimes we spend so long telling ourselves old tales in order to protect ourselves, that when the time comes to let down the guard and open our heart, we don’t have the strength to let go of that wound.
      Through my prose, I imply that when the rain comes it will wash away the pain and heal this wound.
      One never truly forgets, but it is a must that we should heal.
      In faith and love,
      Gia
