The Rain Will Fall
A soft wet mist engulfs the city
As a blue sky fades into a sad shade of gray.
A dark and dreary rain descends
As the sun successfully hides from the day.
The wind howls like a wounded beast
As it swoops down with its twists and its swirls
Leading dead leaves in a frantic dance
And so another day unfurls.
The cold clammy fingers of the day won't overcome me.
My happy dreams won't fade away.
My life no longer seems dark and dreary.
I will no longer hide from the day.
My thoughts won't reach for a shapeless past
No need to retrace my life's twists and turns.
In my focused search I have found myself
As my day begins without needless concerns.
I will quiet myself, and reflect a while.
And the sadness will pass because I know
That behind the mask I used to wear,
As behind the wind, the cold and the snow
That the sun still shines and the birds still sing.
For this sadness I felt befalls us all.
But I now know to see beyond.
Because into each life some rain will fall.
(An Original Poem by Mel Kaye)
