Night Sky

By: Stephen Mathews

While lying on my roof

I gazed up into the night

The stars were hard to see

Due to clouds hiding their light


At first the clouds annoyed me

It was stars I came to see

They help with the troubles

I brought on the roof with me


It was soon I thought of nothing

As I watched the clouds roll by

I could feel them take my troubles

When a tear fell from my eye


The clouds they brought me comfort

It was like they felt my pain

They shed their tears upon me

But most just call it rain
