Pitter-Patter

The soft pitter-patter of the rain outside holds me captive

It speaks a message only I can hear

And if I sit and listen closely

I can just make out the message that it holds so dear.

The soft pitter-patter of the rain outside keeps me spellbound

Its beauty, music to my ears

And as it’s melody takes me higher and higher

I can just make out the message I am meant to hear.

The soft pitter-patter of the rain outside makes me happy

It knows that I am here

And as I sit and listen to its story

I can hear your voice filled with cheer

And as I let a tear fall down my cheek

The soft pitter-patter of the rain outside gives me comfort

And I know that one day we will be near.
