Walking in the Rain

by der hofnarr

Walking in the rain sometimes washes all your tears away.
Walking in the rain sometime floods all your fears away
And walking in the fields while a gentle mist hangs in the air
May bring back memories of a time when I was free from care...

Well it seems not so very long ago the sun shone in the sky
And reflections of the autumn leaves were mirrored in your eyes.
Yes it seems not so very long ago I held you in my arms,
Our hearts beat quick together, sheltered from all harm.

Has the winter frost so soon invaded both our souls?
Am I a fool to love you - am I rich enough to pay the tolls
Exacted by my requested absence
As I search among my varied roles for a part that I can play
With a minimum of pain
While seeking shelter from the thunder... and the rain...
