Sometimes it’s just the sunlight
Or a rain cloud passing by
 a bright moon filled with laughter
 a song that makes you cry
Sometimes it’s the thunder
That scares away the rain
 the sweetness of a smile
That washes away the pain
It might just be a shadow
That seems to fill your day
Or the beauty of a sunset
That scares the blues away
For each and every moment
With every breath we take
Leading closer to tomorrow
And the choices that we make
Life is simply moment to moment
Never knowing where it ends
We hold on tight to love ones
Forever grateful for  our friends
Sometimes it’s the sunlight
And the gentle falling rain
Reminding us of our mortality
With a  chance to live again

    The title grabbed me because I have a poem with the same. Mine is about a cat, however. ; )
