Sunshine and Shadows

I know as I grow older
And my eyes have clearer sight
That behind the darkest shadow
There’s a shining ray of light
That sorrow has a purpose
Though we seldom guess
As through this world, we rush so madly
That all is for the best
Everyone has love and sorrow
Everyone has grief and pain
Everyone has sunshine and shadows
Rich or poor it’s just the same
Where there is sunshine
There are always shadows
Where there is grief, there is always pain
So, when you thank God for sunshine
Kneel and thank him for the rain.

RF circa 1940’s
