By Antony King


Summer rain it cleanses

Streaming down upon her face

Removing all the hopeless thoughts

At least for just one day.

She looks toward the heavens

With eyes that once shown bright

Seeking what was once a dream

In hope she finds the light.

She prays to god in silence

Please fill my heart with joy

Find me the strength to win this fight

As my soul can then rejoice.
