Rain an ally

It’s raining as if it’s my tears,
It’s chilling just like my blood,
As the rage melted down like ice,
I find myself in an oasis of tranquility,
I can see the desert lasting countless miles,
It’s daunting, but I have to walk through it,
Until I find another oasis of peace and relief,
I just wish to drench in this rain until it ends,
I wish to enjoy the fragrance of the soil,
As sun will dry up the air and soil soon
The winds will conquer with roaring noise
To make the desert a haunted zone
As it has been for those souls
Who left behind those skeletons
 On top of the golden sand
Only a few survived their journey
Reaching their destiny through this path
I believe, I could emulate them  
I do not know when it will rain again
But, I hope to reach my destination
In company of my beloved rain
As it always joins my happiness
Somehow from nowhere
It drains away my weariness
With its rhythm and beauty
Quenching the thirst of soul
To taste the drops of relief

Deep ! This was a poem that started with a bit of negative element and ended on a positive one . At first few lines I thought this is gonna be like other rain poems , but then you proved me wrong ! Wonderful ! I loved the image , its so lively and make you attached to the poem :)
