Rain falls for one

But not another;

Such is the way life goes.

A friend is someone

That holds the umbrella,

So you don’t have to do it alone.

    Most times I’ve shared an umbrella, we’ve BOTH gotten wet!!

      Well, Debbie, at least you were both wet together 🙂

    my husband took an umbrella to a concert the other night to share if needed. I am glad though that we didn’t have to share it. rain at an outdoor concert is not ideal.

      Rain at any outdoor event generally isn’t fun. However, I remember being at a waterpark during a lightning storm…I was fifteen, and I thought it was pretty exciting 🙂

    Short but sweet and a nice photo to boot!

      Thanks, Jonesing. Getting the boys that close together “touching” was nearly impossible 🙂

    It’s right. The friend holds the umbrella without telling nothing.

      I’ve found that the times I don’t want a friend around are the times I need them most. Thanks for stopping by, Carl.

    Yes! So much substance in these few lines. Really sums up true, ‘getting alongside each other’ friendship for me.

    • jannatwrites July 27, 2012 / 5:46 AM

      I’m glad you can relate, GodGirl. Friendship is so simple, yet complicated at the same time!

    Very well expressed. 🙂

    This reminds me of the different sentiments of sharing an umbrella: sometimes romantic, sometimes annoying, sometimes not by choice. But I like yours: so that one’s not alone. =)

      I think most often people prefer not to share an umbrella, unless it’s an extra big one, because everyone ends up drenched 🙂 Where I live, it hardly rains, so my umbrella blocks the sunshine. Thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts on the poem, Sandra.
