Through the Rain

Dear Diary: I love you
Today I am driving through the rain.
Although I’m not sad, I see this sky’s tears.
I have a goal to reach you someday.

What steps must I take?
I want to be a vital part of the world.
I love you and cannot give up.

Each time I reach this place,
I fill with fear and sorrow.
I want to see you despite the miles.

I smile when you speak.
Your voice can bring forth the sun.
The clouds part from west to east.

I laugh at your silly jokes
I am proud to be your friend,
I hope I can make you laugh.

I will see you soon enough.
We will dance with each other then.
I feel hope and I want to share it with you.
