The lily flower blossoms

Petals open to the sky

Rain drops fall

As the clouds cry


The sky sends its tears

As a sign of affection

Much like I do

As a sign of affliction


But I sit here and think

How the clouds feel love

For the flower so deeply

To send gifts from above


I think of the signs

Sent from his soul

The rainbows, or flowers

I see while I stroll


Now I understand

It’s his love raining down

A sign from the heavens

He is safe and sound


The pain may still be there

But my love has grown stronger

Overshadowing the hurt

And my heart has grown fonder

The cloud does not cry

He whispers, “I love you”
