A Warm Summer Night
I lay in bed on the verge of sleep one night
A warm summer breeze flowing through the window.
Just as I was ready to doze off there came a flash of light
And the sky gave out a mighty rumble of thunder.
Then in the mist of this I heard the pitter of raindrops upon the glass.
They quickly spread across the ground asunder
Bringing life to the grass which as brown a brass.
I crawled out of my bed and watched the rain fall
At first it was soft but soon came in sheets driven by the wind.
It was now not pitter patting but pounding on my window and outside the wall
Again the lightning lit up the sky with flashes and streaks of majestic light.
Now I could feel the raindrops upon my face for the wind was driving it inside and out.
I didnít bother to close the window though the rain was falling on everything in sight.
I had been praying for rain and now it was here, an answer from God I have no doubt.
There was music from the trees and the flowers, the grass and the ground
As if praising God for the rain, what a wondrous sound.
They say into each life a little rain must fall
This is true and if it did not what would happen to us all?
