In the Midst of the Storm
11/20/2021

In the midst of the storm

Love care, and concern will

Always prevail; so for one

That didn’t know – please do

Tell.

In the midst of the storm

The rain, the cold, the lightning,

The loss, the fear, the uncertainty

Will always be followed my the warmth

Of the sun, the baby blue of the

Sky, and several rainbows

Accompanied by the strength of the sparkle in your eye.

In all disadvantages, also present

Is an advantage. In the midst of

The storm, friendships and relationships will be born.

In the midst of the storm

Some things can’t be replaced, but

With the steady beat of the organ

In your chest

You can continue the race

Of life.

This too shall pass, the same as things

In the past. We’ll look back and

Possibly laugh, we may even cry

It is what it is, don’t waste

Your time asking why.

When you find yourself going

Through hell, keep going!

That’s the only way out

In the midst of the storm

Display a character of strength,

Love, and patience as each day passes

And the bitterness will evolve to sweetness

The same as molasses.
