When the Rains Came

When the Rains Came

She always smiled,

so brilliantly,

life was so full –

of wonder and awe.

The days as they passed,

brought smiles galore

and her muses would sing,

bringing inspiration,

keeping her busy many a long night,

until the storm clouds gathered

and the rains came.

 

When the rains came,

her heart was always in pain,

her smile turned upside down,

nothing was pleasing any more –

the muses would sing sad songs.

 

When the rains came,

she wondered if the sun would shine again,

wondered when the clouds would part,

bringing colorful rainbows –

it nearly broke her heart.

Inspiration could not break through,

not when the storm clouds,

rolled across the skies.

Just as quickly a rainbow appeared,

sun rays peeped through,

the shadows all parted

and the muses could sing once more.

Suddenly there was music in the air,

the sky a brilliant blue.

Then the days were livable once more,

they were full of happiness and joy,

life was worth living again,

she felt like dancing,

as inspiration came in waves,

that washed over page after page.

The night so tranquil,

the moon and stars so bright,

everything was always fine –

 

until the rains came along once more.
