Through The Fire and Rain

Look up to the cloudy skies of grey
That linger up above most every day
Threatening us with its pouring rain
But don't you know it's really tears
That fills up all the lakes and weirs
From a world so disparate and full of pain

Surrounded by mother natures gifts
We Feel all the seasons begin to shift
But Are we all still to blind to see
We are not different from each other
So Why do we harm One another
It just doesn't make any sense to me

Look at the faces in your home town
Do you see smiles turn into frowns
And does it ever make You wanna cry
What has happened to our souls
We just keep on digging deeper holes
And building buildings higher in the sky

Through all the fire and rain
And all the love and pain
I promise that I'll always stick around
Through all theses howling winds
I'll always be your best friend
And ill pick you up when you are down

And if you say it isn't so
And if you ever feel alone
Ill be there to put a smile on your face
And when to sun come out
We'll show people what it's all about
And the world will be a better place

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
