    As she arose to view a
    Picture over the fireplace,
    Memories of a past love
    Embedded themselves into her face.

    He was her strength and
    Her valiant song.
    Now his embrace is
    Forever gone.

    He was known for his wits
    And his ability to serve.
    It's been five years, yet the
    Voice of his memory can still be heard.

    Every now and then...it still rains.

    Before winter sets in she prays extra hard.
    Winter has a way of vexing
    Without any regard.

    A comforting hug will relieve the pain,
    But in a short while it returns again.
    Often she has bowed her head and wept,
    Realizing time and prayer are her long term help.

    Send a prayer her way
    And you come along too.
    One day you will need someone
    To help you through.

    We all experience the warmth of the sun,
    But every now and then...it still rains.

    surely we all need this pain(rain) to grow...my prayers are with all experiencing stormy weather...I know the climate well personally
    I saw this the other day and it helped me...it said....... Serenity is'nt freedom from the storm..... but the ability to find peace within the storm.

    feelin your piece completely..thanx 4 sharing

    this peace

    reminds me of how tenuous life is, how precious time is, how important good memories are for our comfort, and healing....when we need something, someone to hold onto when the rain comes.

    Beautiful, Joyce!

    thank you

    Yes, despite it all, sometimes the sadness just burrows its way in and it rains. I could feel the sadness in your words.
