It Sounded Like Rain

It sounded like rain as I peacefully slept
My senses unhindered and thoughts naught
my eyes focused in the dark
as I regained my spirit and liveliness

It sounded like rain upon my roof
a smile slipped across my lips
The thought of it awakened me
yet the sound caressed my soul back to sleep

It sounded like rain upon my roof
The dawn was unhurriedly approaching
the sun awaited to pursue its course
the birds inspired to expose their chirp

It sounded like rain, it sounded like rain upon my roof

It stirred up and excited me
The familiar sound aroused my curiosity
yet my mind was still asleep

It sounded like rain upon my roof
Puddles on the ground and dew on the leaves
before the sun desiccates the proof
hurry to see the water dripping from the eaves.

It sounded like rain
It sounded like rain upon my roof.
When I awaken, I’ll know for sure
It was clearly rain and I wasn’t aloof.
