I Wish the Rain Would Linger

Sometimes I wish the rain would linger

And cause my despairing thoughts to flee
I wish the rain’s monotonous music

Would change my sadness into glee

I wish the rain would not go away

And wash the pain of my soul’s despair away

I wish the puddles of water to be deep

So that in them I could jump and play

For in the rain I find sunshine and not only clouds

I find a hope that change does come if only for a while

In the rain I see God’s plan of love and cheer

I see His handiwork appear upon the horizon of my soul

Encouraging me to bask in the rain as each drop cleans and restores.

I then stop and begin to bask

In the reality of all I see

I then stop wishing for the rain to linger

And see just as it, the pain of my soul will also pass
