    We all love the sunshine
    We love to play in it
    Drench ourselves in its warmth and heated joy
    The sun gives men and women beautiful shadows of each other
    Best foot forward images
    Desirable images
    Images of what they want each other to be

    Things are right in the sunshine
    From sunshine grows patience and communication
    Love is easy in the sunshine

    So why not when it rains?
    Who can love and be loved when rain falls through life’s gray clouds
    What woman can make an angry man calm
    Sheltering him from the rain that drowns his soul
    Where is the man whose love is an unconditional sponge
    Soaking up the puddles of life that she must cross when all is not well

    All that is good and right in the sunshine is so quickly forgotten when it rains
    We rush to come inside
    Hide from each other when the raindrops hurt
    When things are confusing and unfamiliar
    We seek things other than each other

    God give us strength
    Let us love in the beauty and comfort of the sun
    And love even harder when it rains
    For that is when we need to remember the sun will shine again

    be
