Rain! Rain! Please Come Again!

Rain, rain please come again;
Bring with you some drops of past
When kids and others rushed to hide
Remember how I hardly budged
Hands & head lifted all the way 
To hug and love you all the more

Remember rain when we all were young
You came outside when we stayed home
With my Papa, Amma, Akka and Delight
Watching you through the windows while
You danced along the pavements and sill
We truly enjoyed the nuts in shell

Soon after you were tired out and gone 
We splashed the streams you'd made
Papa helped us make paper boats
We sailed away with loads of stuff along with "men" of ants & such
Racing our boats all the way; steering them with long sticks from side
We watched it till it was out of sight, either under or away it went...

Thank you rain for being there, for surrounding us with much pleasure
For obeying Papa's answered prayers when it was time for me to be wed
Papa desired not a hall; his wish was for me to be wed at home
It was the season for rain those days
But you were kind and stayed away
While I was married off in such a bliss

Rain, rain please come again;
Thank you for the fresh new drops
Of mercy and grace from my King above
Who sends me gifts of his love and joy
Surely few are from my Papa too
Who is still so very fond of me

Rain, rain please stay a while
Tell me what all my Papa said
Share with me how he likes it there
Enjoying in the presence of Christ
He was such a great friend of God
I am sure he is now so much more...

No, not tears, not tears dear rain
Please tell Papa we are doing fine
We miss him much but know for sure
His earnest prayers do help us here
We will be fine knowing that
He too is fine in the Promised Land!

Rain, rain please come again as often as you are sent our way
Remember to bring the cherished love - God & Papa so fondly send
When you return home back to them, please hug them both tight for me;
Really tight once more for me...
And if it is not too much to ask; can I send some kisses too
For blessing us with such joy & peace from above that keeps us strong...

Beautiful poem. I always love walking in the rain. Looks like I read this post at the right moment. I was feeling bad because the baseball game I was waching on TV was "rain delayed" at the 7th innings. Your post made me cheerful again.

Glad you liked my poem. Appreciate your encouraging comments.

Hi...

Beautiful, touching.

Why is it that your poems always brings tears to me? Wish I could send some kisses to my Dad too. We were a family reluctant to show affection so cannot remember kissing him ever. Wish I could send all those hidden love and hugs through prayers and rain drops...

Thank you friend

Touching words, Stranger! The only thing we can do is to show as much love as possible and beyond to those who are still with us...

Lyrics...BJ Thomas..

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed
Nothin' seems to fit
Those raindrops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'

So I just did me some talkin' to the sun
And I said I didn't like the way he got things done
Sleepin' on the job
Those raindrops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'

But there's one thing I know
The blues they send to meet me won't defeat me
It won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
Cryin's not for me
'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free
Nothin's worryin' me

[trumpet]

It won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
Cryin's not for me
'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free
Nothin's worryin' me

Beautiful poem.. reminded me of the famous gazal

yeh daulat bhi le lo
yeh shauharat bhi le lo
bhale cheen lo mujhse meri jawani
magar mujhko lauta do
bachpan ka SAWAN
for kagaz ki kashti
WOH BARISH KA PAAANIIIIIIIIIIIII

god bless .. loved your version tooo excellent

Thank you Bikramjit!

My bad, looks like I'll need a translator to fully understand the lyrics.

Any volunteers?!
