And the rain will come,
a deluge,
a soaking,
a drought breaking rain.
An overflowing.
life bringing

rain on the dry spaces
the dark places
rain on the blackened
seared, wounded
remnants of my soul.

rain on my hardened heart
my darkened mind
rain on the
scared, fallen,
remnants of my soul.

Let me dream again
Let your hope arise
Help me see again
and rain
Let me rise again,
in your peace again,
help me hope again
and rain.

There is a dark cloud,
I hear it calling,
it knows my name,
it knows my pain
it gathers me in
a grey mist
of no returns.

Here is the struggle,
for to struggle is in vain
here is receiving
accepting , to remain
in a place of graced acceptance
even though the darkness falls,
In a place of failure
even though accusations call.

There is a gentle rain
I hear it calling,
it knows my mind
the lies that blind
it gathers me in
a torrent of love's
eternal returns.
