STORM

There are times in our lives

when we question it all

Life; Death;

the purpose of a heartache

And it’s then we must realize

that if we had no emotions,

felt no grief,

cried no tears,

and experienced no pain,

We would surely be unable to appreciate

the joys of laughter,

the warmth of love,

or even the simple goodness of friendship.

For we don’t truly

know how sweet a flower smells

without knowing the stench of something spoiled.

And we can’t appreciate the tranquil days

until we’ve suffered the storm.

We often don’t realize how complex

creation can be until we meet it

face to face

and stare it in the eyes.

Well, I held a miracle

in my hands as it took its first breath of life;

and I’ve knelt on freshly turned earth to mourn.

It’s not always easy.

It’s not always fair.

I know how it feels

to question the purpose;

and fill with grief so unbelievable

there are no words.

But you must realize

that all of life is balanced.

We cannot predict or judge;

but only understand

that the symmetry will continue.

That’s His way.

Our part is to savor the fragrant flowers

and the warmth of the sun;

to hear the laughter

and remember the smiles.
