Drown in tears was my demise,
falling rain from eyes that cry.
Cloudburst rains down from sky,
all consuming water waist high.
Whispered winds came anew
caressed as they gently blew.
Brought forth a brand new day,
sadness began to peel away.
Tears began to cleanse my soul,
little by little feeling whole.
That little voice so deep inside,
grew strong with hope and pride.
Began to know real self worth,
my purpose upon the earth.
Not to live my life in pain,
nor drown neath tears of rain.
Even the darkest day you find,
can be overcome, left behind.
Though darkest before the dawn,
new day dawns, the rain is gone.
