In a While


In just a while the clouds will disappear
Once more I'll see a rainbow in the sky.
Though now this world of mine is colored gray,
The sun will shine uopn me by and by.
My heart is heavy with a nameless grief
That seems to almost take my breath away,
But in a while I know that peace will come,
And pain will leave and only joy will stay.
In just a while all I am feeling now
Will disappear as if it never was,
And I will breathe a sigh of pure relief
To find that I can smile again because....
Nothing last forever in this world,
God only sends the crosses we can bear,
And sorrow fades before my firm belief
That God walks closely beside me everywhere!
