April Showers


Pitter patter on the roof

Down the pipes and eaves

Rain falling everywhere

Drenching earth and leaves

In a gale or gust of wind

Umbrella flipping out

Water dripping down my face

Now am soaked without

Water pouring over me

Cleansing sin and stain

Remnants of an impure life

Spiral down the drain

Effecting transformation

Erasing dirt and grime

Emancipated from the past

Clean slate reversing time

When the storm moves on

And gray clouds start to clear

The sun returns to sky

Rebirth now is here
