people long for warmth and light
thinking it will bring happiness.
once the clouds roll around
everyone ignores their song
and leaves them to weep.
people drown in their tears
praying light will evaporate their fears
leaving the clouds dwelling in suffering.
when it all comes burning down
houses ablaze and drought settling in
when people beg for rain,
the clouds will be long gone
humming their song
to someone who cares.
