Forever Grey

Raindrops fall upon the

roof

And splatter against

the window.

I see the lightning flash

across the sky,

And hear the thunder

follow.

 

The rivers have flooded

The flowers have drowned

Only the trees still hold

their green.

But the rain continues

to pour over the land;

They’ll die soon too.

 

I’m told it will stop,

Then the sun will shine

bright;

And everything will bloom

in full color.

But all I can see

Is the gray of the sky

And the rain forever

falling.
