The rain is softly falling,
Quiet notes of country music fill my ears.
Things are familiar, and warm.
My hands feel small as they turn the pages,
And a large coffee mug sits forgotten on the dresser.
For a moment in the evening,
I can forget myself in the sounds of rain.
Learn to stay in the silence between us,
And fill it with the soft feathers of life.
Never am I lost in this darkness,
In this rain.
