The Sound of Rain

sitting in the dark
with only the computer
backlight to show the way

i listen to the wind,
the patter of the rain
against the deck

not sad that
i can’t sleep
but happy that
i am safe

comforted that
when sleep comes
waiting will be a
warm bed

where i can lie
and contemplate
the sound of
raindrops
