It is so easy, it seems, to hate the bad weather, thunderstorms, rainy days. But for me, there has always been something about the storms that calmed and relaxed my inner beast. Think of it, the rain cleanses our souls and cools the burn of the hot sun. The lightening reminds us that there are things out there way more amazing and powerful than us, keeping our egos in check, and the thunder, well it sings us to sleep.
I remember even back to rainy days, Mom driving me to Elementary School, and I got such a cozy, relaxed feeling. The classroom was darker, calmer. I could look out and see the rain drizzling against the windows... deep sighs of tranquility.
Yeah, the rain cleanses... it heals. It gives us a dark before the dawn. Without our "storms", we could never truly appreciate the "beautiful" ones. Have you ever payed attention, actually 'seen' a vivid sunrise after a good heavy rain? It's like a blinding vision of Heaven.
"Wish It Would Rain Down" by Phil Collins
You know I never meant to see you again
And I only passed by as a friend
All this time I stayed out of sight
I started wondering why
Now i, I wish it would rain down, down on me
Yes I wish it would rain, rain down on me now
You said you didn't need me in your life
I guess you were right
Well I never meant to cause you no pain
But it looks like I did it again
Now I, I wish ....
Though your hurt is gone, mines hanging on, inside
And I know its eating me through every night and day
I'm just waiting on your sign
cos' I know, I know I never meant to cause you no pain
And I realize I let you down
But I know in my heart of heart of hearts
I know I'm never gonna hold you again
