Stormy Night
  JERRY BROWNING

 

 BROKEN COMPASS   

 

Stormy Night
 

baby’s in the cradle

kids have gone to bed

to the candy-coated world

that swirls inside their heads

so many roads to choose

so many songs to sing

they shiver when the night comes

and wonder what the morning brings

 

ah, listen to the rain fall

singing such a pretty song

they dance across the roof tops

a single note in every drop

 

grandma’s in the rocking chair

says she couldn’t sleep

since grandpa passed away last year

she thinks on life too deep

as she’s praying for her savior

her eyes can feel the weight

she slowly struggles to her room

before it gets too late

 

ah, listen to the rain fall

singing such a pretty song

wind whistles thru the trees

what perfect harmonies

 

now, all the lights are out

we see the lightning flash

we pause a quiet moment

and hear the thunder crash

don’tchya shake now honey

don’t pay it any mind

the only thing that matters is…

we’re by  each other’s side

 

Lithopolis, Ohio ‘79
