Between all these clouds a sunray
still somehow found it's way
through the masses of rain
about which one likes to complain.
I know it symbolizes hope
but as I walk life's tightrope
I do what appears to be insane,
I kneel down and pray for rain.
because for hope's seed to grow,
I need the streams to flow.
Let it rain down
so fear will drown,
and with every roaring thunder,
we'll see nature's wonder.
Let the old be washed away
so that hope can finally stay.
