In tune with the endless rain
A sad refrain the sidewalk sings .
Umbrellas open black and webbed
Like a bats unfurled wings.
Moving to travel the city streets
Where hearts are tired
Too tired to sleep.
Far above my laptop fades
As in the torrents I must wade.
But in a train ride short and sweet
I have a family to greet
With children laughing by the door
A dog that dances on the floor
And at the back my patient Wife
Handling all of our daily life.
With rising bills and tightened money
She kisses me with a " love you Honey. "
My heart relaxes.all burdens unfurled
And all's worthwhile in my tiny world
the anthem of a working man.
