The warmth of the sun often drenches my soul,
It makes me feel happy about all life has to offer.
Just like when everything is going great and we have no worries,
These days cannot and should not last forever, for without the rain,
How will the earth's beautiful green carpet flourish
And how will we learn to appreciate the sunny days?
On those rainy days simply find comfort in knowing
That the sun will shine again.
Know that your faith must be tested,
And when it all comes down to it...
Rain makes everything and everyone in some way grow.
