All This Rain and No Umbrella

Someone bled the colors from my world
Every sunny day, there is no sun
All the weather I can see now is the rain
Just when I think it’s stopped, it’s never done
Broken things won’t ever be unbroken
Time may never soften this last blow
I’m trying to find peace, but it’s been stolen
I’m left reconciling love with letting go
Every single nightmare has come knocking
While a year of dreams burns smoke into my sky
I pray for strength when peace is slow to coming
Some loves leave love, some leave us wondering why
Answers won’t paint my sky in colors
Time can’t even draw a different end
And I am left now struggling to the surface
Trying to remember how to breathe again.
