Smith’s “Pray for Me”

it is gray and rainy today
i can see it in your eyes,
hear it running down the glass
think of the times we shared before
the tears
days like today
and less murky days
i want to hold you
to cross this frustrating
bridge the silence
silence not from lack of words
never saying
what we really feel
i step through the door
into the gray world again
song playing softly in my mind

April 5, 1989
