Finally After the Storm

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .


Life brings many storms,

always tears mingle with fears,

love comes and goes,

only true love stays.

When blessed with that true love,

you know love never dies,

even if you’re suddenly parted.

Leaning on each other,

through the rough times,

through the laughter,

that brings happy memories.

After our struggles,

while our life’s boat was upon stormy seas,

we barely made it through the waves

but finally sailed out into the sun.

Many turbulent times,

were still ahead,

many things to ponder,

but one by one our dreams came true.

Finally all the storms ended,

the waters dried

and our life’s boat –

finally found itself closer to the sun.

blessed days began,

our happiness knew no bounds.

Then came the day we had to say goodbye,

left on the shore,

while you went away,

where I could no longer reach you,

but our love will forever shine

and together we’ll meet in paradise.

There I’ll know you’re still mine,

our love so divine,

forever to walk along the Milky Way

and dance among the billions of stars above.

Nothing to keep us apart,

with your hand in mine,

through flowery meadows we’ll run

and have many days in the sun –

that forever shines beyond the clouds scattered across the skies.
