How wretched her days were
Dark clouds hanging over the horizon
Heavy with the promised rain
Taunting parched lands and her soul
If only the darkness breaks apart
To drench the world below
For the world was already breaking
And her mouth dry as the desert

I shall stand under the rain,
letting its waters cool me down.
I have so many hurts within
that need to be washed away.
I will let my hair get wet,
and my cloathes soaked,
and hope that the waters penetrate
and clean my dirtied soul.
I will stand under the rain
with my head bowed,
letting the water course down
along with the tears that leak from my eyes.
I will stand still and in silence,
hoping that the deluge will cover me whole,
sweeping away my loneliness
and making me whole once more.

Through your eyes I saw how pretty life can be,
even when the sun gets obscured by dark clouds,
and the rain comes down pouring hard,
it will always end like problems do
with a bit of sunshine and rainbows too.
Through your eyes I saw how darkness can easily
the mind of someone lost in love and hurt,
but then you showed me what loving hands can do
to hidden wounds and scars of long ago.
Through your eyes I saw how I can be a better version
when I thought I can go no further you were the one
who pulled me onwards.
Now it’s my turn to show you how wonderful life can
if only you took the time to stop and see the world
right here with me.

What’s a little pain every now and then?
Even when you bleed, wounds do heal.
Scars can get left behind
along with their memories,
but the pain you can keep inside,
under a lock and key.
What’s a little hurt from time to time?
You’re alive hence you feel.
But the hurt can disappear if you allow it to,
and replace it with something better,
even when you feel like there is nothing
that will make you smile once more.
What’s a little bit of goodbyes,
when lovers go their separate ways?
When the morrow might bring a bit of rainbow
after the rain?
Bringing solace after all the hurt and pain.
