The Clouds


The clouds were not there,
When the stars provided us with light
This is why I’m still waiting for the clouds
To reveal the light of the stars
Because I know that beyond these clouds
There is the moon and the bright stars
It’s only after these clouds move,
That we can all see the bright stars

No matter how hard the clouds
Try to hide the stars
That will never disqualify their existence
Because the stars will always be there
Even though we cannot see them
I know that the time will come
When we will sing and dance every night
Because the stars will be providing us with light

    THIS IS WHY I'M WAITING FOR THE CLOUDS
    TO REVEAL THE LIGHT OF THE STARS...............

    Yes, it needs a brave heart to face all the challenges of life. Bravo. Stand strong on your own feet and fight straight against dark.

    Not only excellent expression, it also acts as the voice to recite thousand times in singles life anywhere anytime on the globe. Star symbolizes the eternal truth, and clouds are the relative hardles of daily life which pulls us back to attain there..............Congratulation! ! !

    Write more poet........more you write.

    know that the time will come
    When we will sing and dance every night
    Because the stars will be providing us with light

When the hours of Day are numbered,

Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
