After the Rain

A Healing Poem of Love, Loss, and Forgiveness:

Rain Comes to Heal Us All

Pink ground roses with yellow centers surrounded by green leaves

Rain Comes to Heal Us All

Rain comes to heal us all,

Falling tears from a sky of love,

Remembering even when earth forgets

To nurture all that we cannot forgive,

Bringing love remembered to restore

Even flowers that forget how to bloom 

Absent all that loved them from sky above.   

Beth Brown, My Forever Son
