Raindrop

A single raindrop fell

Upon a single flower

And then decided to dwell

There hour after hour

 

Upon a single flower

That raindrop always stayed

There hour after hour

Yet began to be dismayed

 

That raindrop always stayed

Through every day and night

Yet began to be dismayed

And was filled with fright

 

Through every day and night

It gazed at the vast sky

And was filled with fright

Wondering if it could ever fly

 

It gazed at the vast sky

Staring at the rain falling

Wondering if it could ever fly

The clouds were calling

 

Staring at the rain falling

As it once did before

The clouds were calling

A feeling it could not ignore

 

As it once did before

It reached up to the sun

A feeling it could not ignore

With waiting it was done

 

It reached up to the sun

And it floated into the breeze

With waiting it was done

It felt its mind go to ease

 

And it floated into the breeze

Settled in a cloud and then

It felt its mind go to ease

And it fell to Earth again
