Rain Child

I am a rain child,

or a child of the rain.

When clouds roll over,

when heavens loose tears,

I become alive,

like flowers in spring,

dancing in the pain,

laughing in the dark,

washed clean by the dew.

I am filled with life

when storm clouds roll in.

I roll out my mat

when store fronts close down,

like stars I light up.

When sidewalks roll up,

I dance where they were.

I am a rain child,

or a child of the rain.

Heartbeats

Ba-dum, Ba-dum, Ba-dum

Feel the heartbeat inside

Ba-dum, Ba-dum, Ba-dum

Feel the life flow in me

Ba-dum, Ba-dum, Ba-dum

This heart has been broken

Ba-dum, Ba-dum, Ba-dum

This heart still beats inside

Ba-dum, Ba-dum, Ba-dum

I have been filled with life

Ba-dum, Ba-dum, Ba-dum

I have been taught to love

Ba-dum, Ba-dum, Ba-dum

My teacher is the Lord

Ba-dum, Ba-dum, Ba-dum

My heart is in the Lord.

Will you join me?

My hand moves across the page

Without my thinking about it.

All of these words pour out of me

Flowing ceaselessly, welling up,

Spilling out. I wouldn’t want anything else,

To just revel in you, your love,

And your life. It’s all more alive,

More beautiful and more vibrant,

It’s all vividly clear to me.

To share it with you is all I want.

Will you join me in this place?
