A brighter day - the sun is shining.

Sometimes Life Hurts

Life is not a bed of roses
joy and sorrow fills each day.
Sometimes the sky is blue
other times it may be gray.

Trials are inevitable
and we all experience pain.
Dark clouds hang over our heads
and sunshine is replaced by rain.

Trouble interrupts our lives
and sickness comes sometimes.
There are deep valleys to tread
and rugged hills to climb.

We each face disappointments
and death snatches our loved ones.
Our peace is disturbed by disasters
and we have nowhere to turn.

Many tears of sorrow we shed
and sometimes we ask why?
Even when we do our best
our dreams fade and die.

Sometimes life hurts badly
but we press on anyway.
It is our faith that substains us
and our hope for a brighter day.
