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
