Tears to Cheers
By David Smith March 22, 2010
The rain comes down like a depressing flood
As tears and anxiety turn to mud.
A depressing day, puddles we see
Darkness at noon saddens me.
The snow is gone, spring in the air
The time change arrived,
More daylight to compare;
In spring we heard of the popular refrain;
“April Showers bring May flowers”
The weather seems to be to our gain.
We do have the depressing flood,
That’s the hope;
New growth from the mud;
So take our tears and all of life’s fears;
That’s the fuel to enrich our years.
