The Passing Storm

Waiting for the storm to roll in
I found a feeling deep within
A little bit of pain and beauty
All mixed together and flowing through me

Thunderous clouds came my way
A little bit of lightning and rain
Building up a surging power
Making its way through my darkest hour

A little bit of laughter and tears
A little bit of hopes and fears
All washed away and made new
I've got something I gotta do

The storm came and passed
Nothing is made to last
But I think I can last little more
There's so much to live for

    The storm came and passed
    Nothing is made to last
    But I think I can last little more
    There's so much to live for
    Yes, there is so much to live for...well written indeed! (Report) Reply

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
