Rain pouring from the sky
washes away my sins and my fears.
It brings a peace I have not felt for so long,
lost in time and yet never forgotten.
Dark skies without the sun in sight,
how so many feel so depressed and tired.
But I stand strong through it all
as this is only the dark before the morning.
A gift we take for granted shining every day
illuminating the earth and bringing warmth.
How easily we forget our own sun
and reach for stars far beyond our reach.
Beauty shining so bright under the soft moonlight
a white sea and yet with no two alike.
Unique in every way imaginable
and yet still so simple.
