clinging leaves

I was comforting a sick child at 3am
I noticed the rain falling
I could feel the shift of seasons taking place before me
I laid my head on the back of the couch
The beat of the drops...
The rhythm of the rain...
bringing peace to my soul

As I quietly slipped into bed again I took a peek outside
Through the lights I could watch the rain flood down

Today the wind blows strong
Looking out the window I notice there are 3 leaves 
still clinging to the branches of the tree out front
They've made it through the most of winter
I'm amazed that on these last days of February they've hung on 
through snow, rain, wind, storms and sun be pushed out soon by the tree's production of new leaves 
only a short while from now
