    dots"For Every Drop of Rain That Falls"dots

    For every drop
    of rain that falls
    I believe, a flower grows
    and for every dark and
    hopeless night
    the light of mercy flows

    for every homeless child
    that prays
    an Angel hears their
    and for every broken
    grieving heart
    a miracle of love
    is theirs

    for every hope thatís gone
    in a heartless, cold
    cruel world
    a token of good fortune
    will grace their hopes

    I even believe
    that youíll come
    and kiss away my tears
    and hold me until
    the Sun is black
    and love away
    my fears!

      Ron, this was so beautiful and heart warming, sorrow is not forever when there is still hope.
    This poem of longing is as smooth as silk and as warm an evening fire.
    A very good piece we loved it.

      Personally, I thought you maintained a weighty theme with 'Hold me until the Sun turns Black' - Although not an eternal statement, the longevity of the comment is guesswork for most people using their imagination, which is required to appreciate the messaging in the poem.

    Great to read a poem that didn't turn into a rant on doom and gloom.

      Perhaps, 'The sun shines again' would throw more weight to the theme than 'the Sun is black'. Great reading.

      We have the choice of looking at our lot in life as a half-full or half-empty situation. I, too, prefer to see the half-full side, and your optimism shines in this lovely poem. "And for every dark and hopeless night the light of mercy flows" is an excellent reminder that hope and hopeless are only four small letters apart. Sharon :-)

      Hey. When I first started reading, I thought: Oh good. It's another poem to give hope...But I wonder how it ends....... The reason I thought this was because in poems like this, the ending (or random parts of it) are often the same or similar to someone elses, or the rhyming words are predictable, and even in some cases the whole thing is predictable. It's hard to come up with your own words of hope, and say them in an original way. (I hope nobody takes this the wrong way, because even my poems are far too novice for me to complain, not to mention the fact that they are probably more predictable than others.) But anyway, the point in blabbing to You about this was actually to commend you for your ending. (And the whole poem in general.) I loved it. The structure was different, the flow was great, the words/wording was organized and thought out... It was just really good over all.
    Most of all though, I loved the ending. While it still showed the hope displayed throughout the whole poem, it also brought in emotion (the emotion that these kinds of poems are usually lacking in). The last stanza made me relive some of my own sadness, and thought about hope and losing hope, from losing a loved one.

    Anyway, I could blab much longer, but I'm afraid I have already bored you with this. Point to this whole thing is, I loved it, and it's going in my favourites. Thanks for the read. I hope to see lots more from you :)

      Yet again I am in awe of your writing. Not much to say other than "wow" really, so I'll leave it at that...for now

      This is really beautiful and hopeful. It almost has an ethereal tone to it. I probably got that from your word choice, especially in this stanza,

    "for every homeless child
    that prays
    an Angel hears their
    and for every broken
    grieving heart
    a miracle of love
    is theirs"

    This was really great:)

    Nice job,

      i love it. full of hope and optimism.
    your rhyme, yet again, is perfect.

    'for every homeless child
    that prays
    an Angel hears their
    and for every broken
    grieving heart
    a miracle of love
    is theirs'

    thats my fav part. i simply love it!!
    i'm sure you have magic ink in your pen!

      Ever the optimist i see. I dont know i used to share your sentiments and then i lost that hope. Slowly i'm earning it back. Hopefully i will be back there soon and i can have hope even in the dimmest sitution.

    Waiting for hope,
