If not for Rain

by In All Our Years

If not for Rain …

She is not ours to keep.

She wakes us from our sleep.

She breathes a life on Her own terms.

… enlists the help of many worms.

She lives life in Her own way.

She rests in the still of the night.

She turns our dark into day.

She does not judge us in our plight.

She is not ours to keep.

If not for Rain ..

Only you know a Joy so deep.

If not for Rain,

I would weep.
