Lifting my eyes to the sky above me,
I enjoyed one last glimpse of the light.
And as I prepared my heart, in came the clouds of darkness
To surround me in a seemingly endless night.
The worries began to mount,
Money, health, and happiness vanished
And in its place, was an indescribable
Sitting behind the wheel of my car,
I asked in a choked-out cry
Why He wasn’t helping us,
Why He had forgotten about us.
But only silence was His reply.
Time dragged by, as I waited for a miracle.
Doctor’s visits, tests, and fear filled my days
Dreams of an untimely end filled my nights
As I frantically tried to find my way out of the haze.
I wanted it all to be a bad dream
And to wake up to find that he was alright.
But we were just at the beginning
And before him was a long, and arduous fight.
When my hope had finally run out,
I gave up trying to fight the rain.
I allowed it mix with my tears
And wash away the pain.
And when I opened my eyes once again,
There was a thin ray of light coming through the clouds
Shining directly upon me, it warmed my heart,
And chased away the enemy’s shrouds.
