They have always been an important part of my Life
Have taught me to face the world & live right.
Have been a part of my smiles & Tears
Have been there in my laughter & fears
The only reason I can think of is simple & plain
It is because I stepped into this world during the rains
Maybe that is why it has a special significance
& In my life plays a role which is very prominent
I remember as a child splashing to school during heavy pour
& Finding “RAINY DAY SCHOOL CLOSED” displayed at the main door.
Recall coming back home & having a blast
Those days soon turned into memories & become things of the past…
When in high school I still very clearly remember
We used to hit the sports field just in this weather
Loved playing in mud water like small little children
Past every moment laughin’ & singin’
In College rains made me miss a special someone around
It became the most romantic season & hell no one I have found
Became lonely & missed a major joy in life
But here it taught me to survive.
When I saw my dad for the very last time,
before he expired leaving all of us behind.
I had the rains which were coming down and pouring
like the tears in my eyes that wouldn’t stop flowing
Happiness, Joy, love, laugh, sorrow & all the emotions.
Rains have always been there & given me a reason.
To live life & to face all moments with equal élan
Now I try to live life to the fullest as happily as I can
When today I sit at my window & see through the pane
The drops falling on my face, as I feel the rain
The moments shared with it become a reality & I go in flashback
I realize if rains weren’t there, a very loyal friend in life I would have lacked
