There’s an almost supernatural peace
That comes after a long rain don’t you think?
Like every person in the world
Has just gotten back from the brink of death.
And when the rain stops
And the sun glimmers off the puddles
We all congratulate each other
For another battle greatly won.
And for a brief moment in time
The universe is silent
Then everyone is back to the day to day grind.
But in that moment of peace
You can almost hear every thought
Saying: “We did it.”
