I felt your presence in the humid air.
I couldn't help but notice you were there.
And then I heard the rumbling far away.
I knew we were in for a storm today.
I saw the sky on fire with lightening
As usual, I found this a bit frightening.
Especially when the torrent of rain fell
and the thunder began to swell.
I bent my head in prayer.
To let you know how much I care.
The gloomy day transformed into night.
Despite the howling wind I knew it would be alright.
Soon the storm passed.
The world became quiet at last.
Off in the distance I heard the sound.
Of screeching sirens all around.
However when morning came
I found my world to be the same.
I embrace you my Dear Lord.
My faith in you is continually restored.
