What Eases Pain?
As I sit here lacking sleep,
My cat rests silently without a peep.
The work day is done,
And I have had my share of fun.
My eyes are heavy, I want to rest,
For hours and hours, I have tried my best,
To turn my brain off so I can sleep,
I long for a slumber, oh so deep.
Thoughts come rushing through my mind,
An end is something I can never find.
I close my eyes and the images appear,
But wait, then suddenly I hear.
I hear the soft note of the dripping rain,
That falls from the sky to ease my pain.
As I sit here longing to slumber,
I begin to give each raindrop a number.
As I lay here in my bed,
With so many thoughts running through my head.
I simply stop, listen to the rain!
The rain will always ease my pain.
