Days filled with clouds and
Nights with rain; how I wish to
See the radiant sunshine again.
The vast sky is continually
Wrapped in foreboding dark gray
Through the night and lasting all day.
A break in the clouds
Would be a cheerful sight; oh
To view again the glowing sunlight
Lifting and softly dawning
Upon the tree-lined horizon.
And to embrace again the warmth
Of the orange tinted orb in the morning dawn
While it strokes and dries the rain soaked land.
But must be patient and quietly believe
That again I’ll watch the flaming sun rise
As it journeys over the land and sea
Caressing the world in its warmth
Again as it gently evaporates
The dwindling mist and rain.
God’s blessings are often that
Way; like soothing rays of hope that
Softly brighten a dark and cloudy day.
So perhaps I will see a hint of sunshine
While I travel through another day
And perceive a glowing ray of hope
To softly brighten my pathway.
