April 2017, a sad month.
Dark drifting clouds obscure my mind
torrential rain is flooding my heart,
it has been like this now for almost a year
since you sadly had to depart.
I am always looking for a break
in the drifting clouds to appear,
but it happens very rarely
it’s been like that for almost a year.
Oh how I would love to catch a glimpse
of the sun that used to shine in the past,
but I sometimes feel there is no chance,
How long is this likely to last ?
I am only hoping that one day
a day not far away
the sun of the past will shine again
stopping clouds and torrential rain.
