The First Heavy Rain of Summer Fell on My Birthday
The first heavy rain of summer fell on my birthday.
Must it be to wash away the most recent year that has freshly passed for me?
The sky has let go of its heavy nimbus...
I woke up to it today.
I bade my gratitude, but not my farewell..
for I know I'll be needing its bridges.
On my birthday, I've known enough what gift I deserve the most,
and as it should, I knew from whom it's gonna come from -
from the most almighty Giver.
Today, on my birthday, God will give me a rainbow.
He's still painting it now with multi-colored rain.
*Written when I woke up at 9:00AM today,
at the height of a heavy rain.
