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 weโ€™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 lifeโ€™s beautiful glow

    I like the occasional rainy day, and part of the reason may be, as you point out, that sunny days are ahead…

    We had rain for the first time in two months last week. What a cause for celebration! The wildfires are finally getting under control. It’s remarkable how different it can be from one part of the country to another.

      I am glad to hear the wildfires are coming under control. With as many as we have, I am a little surprised we are not much better at containing them. Stay safe and less dry!
