Dark Days Can Turn Into a Bright Sunny One

Dark clouds gathering


This Storm too will Pass

The storm surrounds us on every side

Whipping up the waves and destroying the leaves

Cold wind whips about our ankles

The sea rushes in at high tide

The summer is forgotten

Long days with family and friends

lie in the backdrop of our memories

the virus seems to never end

Just when you think it has turned the corner

Another storm arrives and we feel tattered and torn.

collecting our emotions

we face another dawn

Hoping for a turn in the tide

Where we can meet again, side by side

Hope deferred makes the heart sick

But hope eternal will nip that in the bud.

To be free to come and go

whether fast or slow

Just the warm sunshine on our faces

And hope permeating our spaces

We need never despair

For God is near

Closer than breathing

He sees every tear.

So yes, summer will appear again

Banishing our fears and cause us to dance along the meadows

and run free, swimming in the streams

We will yet again realize our dreams.

Walking along the sandy beach at low tide

An inspirational piece!

While the pandemic is certainly causing havoc in our lives, as more people become vaccinated, it will eventually wane, and someday be a distant memory. Polio, smallpox, and other dreaded diseases were ended with the development of vaccines. Keep your chin up! Good days are surely ahead.

Thanks Brenda. So disappointing while the storm is upon us. Difficult to see the wood from the trees :)

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on August 24, 2021:

This poem is wonderful.

You capture exactly how we feel when the storm surrounds us.

Just when we think it's getting better we find ourselves struggling again.

But God sees our tears.
