To me you are like a day.
On some days you are the sunny sky,
Warm to all, bringing joywherever your beaming face shines,
A time which brings others out of the cold gloom,
A time in which no-one should miss.
To others you are the summer rain.
Nurturing, ready to help those who are in need,
Whether they need or not.
You always will be there,
To me you are the winter rain.
Even though I beg for it to stop,
that it only rains,
so that it can help.
And some days you are the storm.
Where men who love the day stand tall and firm,
Through Strong winds that shake the foundations of our being,
Through Heavy rains that wear through our walls
And rarely, just rarely,
Lightning strikes us down.
Even though we lie on our backs wounded,
we have to get back up,
We have to look straight at the day.
And smile,for the day is just too good to miss.
Whether through sun nor rain nor storm.
We must look forward and smile,
For this is how we should embrace
This Beautiful, Wonderful Day.
