It can’t rain forever

It can’t rain forever
it does not matter that the weeds
have flourished in the rain,
that the valleys are no more
that the houses
have been destroyed.

It can’t rain forever
it does not matter that your tears
have overflown with sorrow,
that the smiles refuse
to appear on the horizons
of your face.

It can’t rain forever
it does not matter that the bridges
have broken down
that the rust has taken over
in the relationships
you valued.

It can’t rain forever.

Soon, very soon ,
the rainbows will emerge
the valleys will dry
the houses will be rebuilt
smiles will break on your horizon
the bridges will be replaced
the rust will no more corrode
and you will find everlasting joy.
