Midnight Rain (a poem)

Midnight Rain
Written October 14th, 2011
Sweet velvet rain
Pattering on my roof
Sing me softly to sleep

The gentle whispers
Reach my ears
As you travel in swirling rivulets
Across the shingles
Of this midnight house


Sweet velvet rain
Pattering on my roof
Sing me softly to sleep

Your lullaby drumbeats
Are warmer than the blankets
Surrounding me lovingly
Visions of summer faeries dance
I am a child again

Sweet velvet rain
Pattering on my roof
Sing me softly to sleep

Falling through the ceiling
Lightly kiss my skin
You flood my room
Sweeping me away
Setting me afloat on a sea of dreams

Sweet velvet rain
Pattering on my roof
Sing me softly to sleep
