Some Rain Must Fall



The sorrows and sins of our lives fall like rain

When cloudy skies and fate darken ahead

Some drops full of sadness, others filled with pain

Tribulations and trials in the tears we’ve shed


From a brief summer drizzle of malaise

And long showers that bring drenching downpour

To torrential hurricanes that last for days

Each holding its own tragedy in store


We cannot choose our days filled with sunny rays

Nor when cloud and gloom will shadow our head

We have no control of when life frets and frays

Sun succumbs to passing showers instead


And when those rains of life fall so hauntingly

The sun beyond the clouds still shines and know

That, when dark skies part, you will repeated see

The love of the sun and life’s beautiful glow

    every cloud has a silver lining; every rose has its thorns; we can choose to focus on the good or the bad in everything…

    Brad this is another beauty. So true we can not control the tragedy that surrounds us but we can hold on to the good and appreciate it when it is there. Such truth and beauty in this piece. Have a wonderful day Brad sending you love and hugs and wishes for sunshine and happiness. Joni

    This is a moving piece, Brad. Like so many other things in life, there is unpredictability. I suppose that’s why life is the greatest reality show ever invented.
