A sort of guessing game...Between sounds and dreams..."what is what I hear?"

Does what I hear hold souls within

Or does its hold let days begin?

Is it beating on the ground

Or is it nothing but a sound?

Does it chase the children away

Or does it start and end the day?

Does it cover the sun with black

Or is it all that can't turn back?

Does it bring the children fears

Or does it bring their elders tears?

Does it understand the dark

Or does it hurt and break the heart?

Does it sound of "Drip"s and "Drop"s 

Or does it release as "Tick...Tock..?"

Does it bring the angels to earth

Or does it count our deaths and births?

May it bring the sounds of thunder

Or may it bring us years to wonder?

May it black out views of light

Or do its hours call forth night?

May it leaved us drenched and cold

Or does it separate us young and old?


Is what I hear the rain outside

Or just the "Tick"s and "Tock"s of time?
