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
