DAY 09 A Little Rain

(david m. bailey)

Day 10 recovering from brain surgery
It’s said that into every life a little rain must fall
Sometimes it’s a drizzle, sometimes it’s a squall
Sometimes it gets under your skin, chills you to the bone
Sometimes it drowns your faith, leaves you all alone

You can run and you can hide, but everyone gets wet
And when you’re finally safe inside, you must not forget
The rivers of peace may have flood their shores
The levis of courage may be broken once more
But over time you start to learn
The water dries, and the sun returns

At the dawn of each new day
You can look back and gently say
You made it through this storm
You were cold but now you’re warm
All of that is good - right now you’re OK
But out on the horizon there’s another on its way
So pull yourself together, don’t be paralyzed
Storms just come and go ain’t no big surprise
And every now and then in the moments in between
There’s a voice that’s telling you how the water has washed you clean
You don’t really want to hear it even if you know it’s true
Perhaps you’ve been re-baptized. Now it’s up to you

It’s said that into every life a little rain must fall
Let the water heal you once and for all.
