Hard Rain

Written by: Gail Angel Doyle

Hard Rain Hard rain drowns my smile just shown Flowers nearby all wilted that just had grown Too much of something will suffocate into death Love also has to be allowed to take a breath Hard rain pours down onto the green meadows Streaming the seeds under the soil that was supposed to grow Rain quenches when it comes at a slow pace Otherwise it kills everything in its place Love is like a gentle flower blowing in the breeze You must not quickly take it from its place of beauty Just slowly take the time to admire it all on its own Then sooner or later it shall be a treasure you will own
