Saving Love For A Rainy Day

Show me love, show me love
That’s what I told my love
She looked up at the skies above
She’s saving it for a rainy day

Be with me, stay with me
Without her I feel lonely
But she doesn’t quite agree
She’s saving love for a rainy day

When it’s winter, when it’s spring
Love me for everything
But she doesn’t hear Monsoon sing
So she’s saving all her love

Now it has begun to rain
I told her not to abstain
Show me all her lovin’ again
But she didn’t show me love

Now I don’t know what to say
She said she didn’t mean it that way
She isn’t literally in any way
Saving her love for a rainy day

I wonder if she’ll ever show me
How her love was saved for me
If it will ever come my way
She’s saving love for a rainy day

  1. TT^TT This reminds me so much of a couple I’m writing right now. It’s quite possible to love a person without acting on that love. Letting it die from want and neglect and time.

  2. So is she like Whitney Houston, but stingier?
    I have a super hard time pushing ‘like’ on posts because of issues involving mental instability (and a possible outbreak of foot-in-mouth-to-finger disease), but this poem is the faceless equivalent of a bleeding heart…how could one just walk on by?

  3. Frank, your poem is really so good and beautiful.
    So filled with longing and yearning. It is true that
    this poem would make a good song….
    What puzzles me is, how can one save love? It flows out if it. Is there.
    I don’t think it does well in a safety deposit box.

  4. Oh Frank.. as a woman, at first I had that sorry for you feeling; then I had to laugh, cause what went through this mind of mine next was….she obviously doesn’t want to “dance” in the rain with you. Good thing it’s just a poetic story.
