Tiny Little Rain Drops
My room is dark
And Iím lying here
With this notebook
And a pencil.
I canít sleep
But Iím tired
I canít concentrate
Yet Iím thinking.
Wondering whose going to read this
Whoís going to care
And who will comment.
And my window is open.
Outside it is about 40 degrees
But Iím not cold
And I love the smell
Of wet asphalt.
I hear music
But itís not 3 Doors Down
Or Trapt or even
No, itís just the rain
Those tiny little rain drops.
Falling from the clouds
That hide my shining stars
And hitting my bedroomís outer walls.
I try to find a pattern
In the way they fall
But then find I canít.
I just lay here
And listen to the falling
Of the tiny little rain drops.
I feel the chill of the night air
But at the same time
The heat of my comfortable bed.
My eyelids start to drop
And each time
They open slower than the last.
Finally I fall asleep
To the beautiful music
Of those tiny little rain drops.

this is really nice......i think i have become a regular to your poetry...since i put mine to rest...i'm enjoying reading more of others great writings......raindrops have a smoothing comforting sound...most people do not generally love rainy days but..i love them..... they are so romantic...what a better way to snuggle up w/your main squeeze...and listen to some soft music in front of a fireplace... have ya ever heard raindrops as they fall upon windchimes hanging from a tree?.....they sound heavenly...great poem.

It's funny, I generally write all my poetry next to my window when I can't sleep. The rain drops are so soothing and comforting, they help me fall asleep too!

Funny, It is past 4am here and I am unable to sleep. A little bird e-mailed me telling me about your poetry so I looked it up and have been reading as I listen to the Tiny Little Raindrops on my window. You are an EXTREAMLY gifted person and I am so very much enjoying reading your Art. KEEP ON WRITING!!!!! I love you and miss you dearly.
