You ask why life has so many tears
why life's road is always rough?...
but with each day and every year
we learn another lesson about love.
Sometimes the path we choose
can seem to be too hard...
but how much more can we loose
with just one more broken heart?
A finished diamond ring
is not beautiful all my itself...
it cannot do a thing
without the polish cutter's help.
Going up mountains and over hills
we are running into walls...
we cannot learn the growing skill
until we learn to fall.
A heart like a flower grows
and reaches for the stars...
but our eyes do not always know
the necessity of lifes scars.
Some flowers along the beaten path
are hidden among the weeds...
the rain showers they must have
are what help the many planted seeds.
Sometimes it takes hitting a valley low
to make us finally look up...
at times only a heartache's blow
can make us feel true love.
You ask why there is so much sorrow
why does life give us so much pain?...
but too much sunshine provides no rainbow,
for flowers do grow in the rain.
