Gray Wings

  1. gray wings.........
    that is what the rain means to me
    Gently they sweep the earth clean
    of all impurities
    and give new life to the thirsting soil
    where tired souls sleep

    one morning they drew a curtain over me
    as I lay giving birth
    veiling my eyes with a terrible mercy
    as they lifted my daughter from my breast
    and took her with them

    now, whenever the gray wings sweep over the world
    outside my window
    I remember, and........
    I wait
    for the rainbow
