Girl in the rain

There’s a girl in the rain
Hiding tears and her pain
I keep wondering
Who’s she?

Her hair is wet
She looks so great
I wish we’d met

She looks here and there
With eyes full of scare
There’s none around her
She’s alone.

I see through this glass
The distance between us
There’s a road I can’t pass
It’s jammed.

I can’t see her face
Amidst this menace
It’ll be real disgrace
If she leaves.

As she quiver
I step out of my car
And I walk towards her
In faith.

Seeing me come her way
She smiles at me, nay
She hurries away
In the rain.

Why would she just go?
I just want to know
Did she see me before?

There’s a girl in the rain
Hiding tears and her pain
I’ve a feeling within
That’s you!

...A dedication to myself and my beautiful wife on 12 years completion of our journey in love...


  1. Hi Tan,

    she must only be an apparition, but you thought all the way that she's real...:)

    or she might be a girl in your past whom you played so much trick and now she's haunting coz if it's not, she should not have walked away when you came near her...:)

    well, if it's real, this story of yours, it's a sad one, but it it's fiction, still it's a sad one Tan!

    good morning...:)
