Crying In Joyful Tears - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

The cloudy sky is dark
And the rain is falling;
People in the streets
For shelter, they go running.

After the heavy downpour
Appears the rainbow;
Signaling a promise
Of a brighter tomorrow.

There is a lonely man
In a very deep sorrow;
A sign of hopelessness,
Frustration and woe.

He is almost drowning
In the river of tears;
His heart is hurt,
His mind full of fears.

Then his eyes close,
And mind meditates;
Asking for God's mercy
Is what his heart dictates.

Sun suddenly shines,
And doubt disappears;
Happy man as he is now
Crying in joyful tears.
