New Year's Day Alone

Rose Marie Raccioppi

The falling snow of Christmas now washed
by the rain this New Year's Day
The once glistening beauty
pale now in pools and rivers
So like this heart afloat
with tears of loss
The day darkens
The rain taps, taps, taps
And this heart awakens to its call
Be not sad for tears are but
the tell-tale messages of your heart
Be not alone for the rain is present
The night comes to bear you comfort
The new day to welcome your faith.
