Storms and Sun
I hear the thunder in the distance
Take shelter, my child
The storms are coming
Waters are rising
Will it ever end?
Lightening shatters the swirling skies
As the rains pour down from the heavens
Drums rumble in mighty echoes
Across the plains and through your bones
Tornadoes may cross the sky
And the flood waters may rise
But don’t be afraid.
Know that on the other side of that storm
Above the darkened clouds
The Sun is shining
So bright, so steady, and so powerful
No matter what this storm may do
It can’t hold out forever against that Sun
It will shine on your face again
You will see blue skies and feel its warmth
You will sit in the green grass and feel the breeze
And know how it feels to be safe again.
Hold tight, Fight hard, be strong
I know you want to scream and cry
All you want to do is give up, give in,
Blame someone, and lash out in anger
Have faith, my child
Your Sun still shines.
This is dedicated to all those victims of the Tornadoes, Floods and other natural disasters this Spring (or ever) who have suffered devastating losses, been displaced, or who have been impacted in any way by these events. Everywhere we live in the world, we are threatened by storms, floods, fires, accidents, etc. and no one anywhere is safe from loss of any kind - our fellow citizens of Earth need our help to make it through these times of trouble as it may be us next who need them to help us from certain danger. I pray that all people at this time find the inner strength they need to get through these hardships and that help is there when they need it. Blessings to you and to all who so generously and selflessly give of themselves in these times. Whatever your religion, spirituality, belief or science - it is faith in something that will see you through to the Sun. Namaste.
