My Melancholy Mood

Sitting by my window on a chilly afternoon
watching raindrops kissing my window pane
wondering if the rain will be here all day
Or will the sun drive the rain clouds away?

Thoughts of my past are vivid in my mind
of times playing in the rain when I was a child
amazed I am how fast the years have gone by
Tears are in my eyes and I believe I know why.

This dark chilly and rainy afternoon
has placed me into a melancholy mood
hopefully, the sun will breakthrough soon
And replace the rain and take away my gloom.

I hope so....
