LITTLE WHITE CLOUD THAT CRIED
I went walking down by the river
Feeling very sad inside
When all at once I saw in the sky
The little white cloud that cried.
He told me he was very lonesome
And no one cared if he lived or died
And said sometimes the thunder and lightning
Make all the little clouds hide.
He said, "Have faith in all kinds of weather
For the sun will always shine
Do your best and always remember
The dark clouds pass with time."
He asked me if I'd tell all my world
Just how hard those little clouds try
That's how I know I'll always remember
The little white cloud that sat right down and cried.
