TheInkWell Poetry Challenge || The Day The Rains Came!!

I am a ghost, just fading away
My weight measured by tears that drain
On their conscience, and their pain
I wish to go, oh please let it rain

My memories are light, just drifting away
When did I come? I'm going astray
Sometimes I'm one, sometimes a melee
Is it Tuesday? Please let it rain!

I cannot walk, my limbs are a waste
I was so strong, now weak, disgraced
Ironwoman, a rock, memories erased
I see it in their eyes, please let it rain...

Sometimes I hear voices in the dark
A tunnel, an aisle, the light is so stark
Time to go? I'll be up with the lark
Wouldn't mind a drizzle, please let it rain?

They are singing, hear the sweet serenade
Bells are ringing, I think it's a parade
Is it for me, oh it's an accolade
Oh, I think today is the day the rains came!

Thank youuuuu

Excellent poem! You combine very suggestive the themes of ghost and rain, with an accomplished musicality and rhythm, and images of great sensory quality. The rain-tears pair is particularly attractive. Greetings, @kaerpediem.
