My God Is Like a Gentle Rain

My God Is Like a Gentle Rain

My God is like a gentle rain
In spring upon a sultry day
Of heaviness with wondering
If burdens ever go away.

“My yoke is sweet; my burden light,”
His words, like raindrops tapping leaves,
Accord in rhythm sounding right,
A yoke as sweet as one believes.

“Come…and I will give you rest,”
From sultry burdens of the world,
Such heaviness all souls invest
Is lifted from each heart unfurled.

The cleansing shower on each leaf,
The words that heal a burden’s pain,
Are lighter sprinkles of belief-
My God is like a gentle rain.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
