Tomorrow when the rain falls
don’t think about crying because it will make it rain harder
Tomorrow when it rains
don’t think about the sad memories you have stuck in your head
that play over and over again like broken tape
Tomorrow when it rains
imagine you and your loved one walking together under a sky full of rain
holding hands while your hands get a small blessing from up above
Think about how beautiful tomorrow will be
when the flowers bloom like they’ve never bloomed before
Think about tomorrow as another movie of fantasy
