32 IT seems now only grey clouds fill the sky, The stars no longer twinkle now you're gone, I watch these long dark time clouds pass me by, Where youthful, happy energy once shone, Among the stars for years we loved and laughed, You had me creased so much it hurt my bones, It's too bad then those great days didn't last, For now I face these darkened clouds alone, But I won't spend my lonely years in pain, Worrying over all the grey to come, For every time I get soaked by the rain, I'll think of you and glow just like the sun, So let these rain clouds bring the coldest storm, With you in mind I'll be forever warm.
