It’s been raining today
It was raining yesterday

Perhaps I should be sad
that there is no sunshine
and the sky is grey
The earth is soaked
and mud is everywhere

But instead I’m feeling
as if the rain was washing away
all that tiredness of last days

I’m feeling like being prepared
for something new coming soon

I’m feeling as if each drop of rain
was bringing me strength
and energy for the next days

I am at home with my children now
but I wish I stood outside
and let the rain flow down my body
to feel its gentle touch on my skin

That soothing touch…

I wish I stood outside
