As long as the sun shines, there must be hope. Thank you to Ben for your suggestions in the preliminary stages of this one!

It started out a lot brighter 

Than it was at the end of the day, 

If only it could have stayed bright 

I'd have happier things to say. 


How does the weather manipulate 

What I'm feeling inside? 

When it's raining I should be happy 

Without it all life would have died. 


When the sun is up in the sky 

Pouring down its life giving rays, 

I think back to early childhood 

When happiness shone all days. 


When the rain starts to pour 

And the air grows so cold, 

Plants look up and thank the gods, 

While inside me the darkness unfolds. 


We get this kind of feeling 

That when it rains we are sad, 

And that when the sun is shining 

We should all be happy and fab. 


When it rains we need to be glad 

That the water isn't up to our necks, 

And when we hear that there's a drought 

At least we aren't thirsty as heck! 


I've noticed while writing this 

That I can see a glimmer of hope, 

Perhaps there is a chance for me yet 

On this Earth on which we must cope. 


Over the last couple of years 

It's got harder for me to live, 

In this world we're devastating 

Grinding up like a great big sieve. 


But the words of some kind people 

Have helped sun shine a bit brighter; 

Thank you all who've said good words to me 

For making that heaviness lighter.
