Let It Rain

I know not everybody has earned the right
They hide during the day
and come out at night
Pretend to be your friend
and then turn and bite
But someday
A few may
See the light

Clouds reflect the day light and know without doubt
And for them
Even at night the moon provides a little light
Pleading to us
Don't leave us behind
Don't leave us blind

Forgiveness rains down on dry ground
Dormant seeds bring forth life
And in just a day
Colorful flowers bloom everywhere
For all of us to share
Life lives

Take away the rain and the pain never washes away
and life never grows

Do a little rain dance for me
and I'll say a little prayer for you
In the end
It is we who have won
And all the land
Will be colorful
For everyone
