We laugh and play in the rain
as it soaks through our clothe
each drop clinging to our skin
like the morning dew upon the grass.
We look up and smile at the ashened clouds
knowing that it is easier than crying.
We hide the pain,
we hide the tears,
we hide our fears
until the rain comes around
breaking the flood gates
and washing away
the sad dust accumulated on our frames
so we can shine again in the light of day.
