After the Rain
Only heroes blessed with pain
Continue searching through the rain
For their loved ones lost somewhere
Finding rest on gifts of prayer.

Best of all the search is slow.
The other must decide to show
And meet him in that pouring rain
Where they may reconcile again.

Linked to dVerse Poetics. Amaya hosts and the prompt is to write a poem inspired by “a piece of music that has made you shed tears” . I am sure all of us have many to choose from. I picked Kentucky Rain sung by Elvis Presley and written by Eddie Rabbitt and Dick Heard. Here is a video with lyrics:

Author: Frank Hubeny

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. If there is hope of reconciliation then perhaps a happy ending. But until then, yes, so much sorrow. Gotta love Elvis…

  2. I love this Frank! You words are such great images of searching through the pain and never quite finding… Grief takes a long time to work its way through. Love the music

  4. Your poem is so stirring. It reminds me of Memorial Day (just passed recently) and of the veterans who served the country and perished in war.
    Always a good song, too. 🙂
