Don't Mind The Rain

Don't Mind The Rain


The days are getting shorter. The cost of living's going up.
Nothing seems to last long anymore.
My life reads "Out of Order" and I've almost had enough
Of this day to day existence for sure!

The nights are getting colder. The cost of love is going up.
Nothing ever is the way it seems.
My heart reads "Game Over" but my mind just won't give up
On this lose/lose situation I'm caught between!

But, then you call my name...and I hear your soft voice speaking,
"Don't mind the rain. It's just a thing or two I'm teaching.
You will make it. This I swear.
And you will see, I really care.
So, don't mind the rain...
I Am there..."

The days are getting longer. The cost of living's still going up.
No one seems to care much anymore.
My life reads "Insert Quarters" but my pocket ain't got enough
Of what I need to settle up the score!

But, then you call my name and I hear your soft voice speaking,
"Don't mind the rain. It's just a thing or two I'm teaching.
You will make it. This I swear.
And you will see, I really care.
So, don't mind the rain...
I Am there...

Don't give up in what you're going through
You can make it! I believe...in you..."

    God spoke to Elijah in 1Kings:19:12 in a "still small voice" :) The entire chapter tells of what God brought him through and yet here he was in a cave, crying that he was "the only one left..." God was there all along protecting him and teaching him... :) as He does us.... ;) big hugs, love ya~deb

    this one causes me little chills, in the background healing ills, don't mind the rain, for he is there...

    Deb, i liked how you were consistant in this fairly long poem. And the refrancing of a video game machine evident in certain stanzas. I really love it. Its truly is a tough world but yes, we should never give up.
