Purple Rain – In Remembrance of Prince

Rain’s medicinal and calming effect

has a way of soothing the soul.

Pouring from the heavens-

rain reminds earth’s inhabitants

of its sacredness.

Prince’ saw rain as purple,

it’s befitting of his regal reign.

But, since the musical prodigy’s demise,

never will purple rain be witnessed again.

Instead of the purple rain, 

for many rain falls like tear drops.

To remind us of his life and legacy,

and to dignify his princely splendor-

purple clouds will hover over us.
