Summer Rain

20170328_170836

every drop of the rain is every bit of my pain

You held my hand tight
As you bid goodbye
It was hard
It was insane…

You kissed me softly
with a wimping cry
It froze my mind
It broke my heart…

You strained me in your embrace
clasped me in your arms
It pricked me
It stung me…

Then it rained on a summer afternoon
P.S.

This is an old poem i wrote  years ago in memory of my beloved papa who passed away that summer.

I am reposting it for this week’s World of Words prompt: বৃষ্টি, which is a Bengali word that means “rain”.

Every week, Rosemarie (of A Reading Writer), Maria (of Doodle Scribbles), and Jade of  https://jademwong.wordpress.com/2020/03/30/poetry-wash-away/ will post a word from a different country in the world.

    Heartfelt Mich and clear to see the precious gift you both had. I believe you only have to be still and observant to know he has not left you. He is in each raindrop, in each hug you receive or smile from one of your children.

    Sorry for your loss. My dad has been gone 16 years this summer. There are days I feel the pain as fresh as if it was yesterday. Most days though I can think of the good times and be okay.
