    Pay Attention The Father says
    Thunder and Lightening
    Rain may follow
    You don't have to cry
    Keep your tears for moments worth memorializing
    Births
    Deaths
    Kisses that take your first breath away
    Pay attention The Father says
    Storms are a passing phase
    Whether for you to remember you
    Or to remember how to weather the storm
    How to weave in between
    What is perceived as still perfect frames
    Looking through stained glass
    Sitting in the eye
    You must try to push through the other side of the storm
    Without being struck
    Rain may follow
    Swallow pain drops like bitter roots
    Shake the Mojo off
    Cough up the mucus stuck in your throat
    Don't choke on your words
    Use His and give praise
    For the days He has given us
    Sun Rays in Spirit
    Moonlit first kisses
    Shooting star granted wishes
    Births
    Deaths
    Kisses that take your first breath away
    Moments before and after
    Lightening and Thunderstorms days
    Pay attention The Father says
    This too shall pass...

    I liked this poem alot. Is quiet, reflective: sounds as if you've come out the other side of the storm and found that the Father is a steadfast companion...

    The last line of this piece is the proverbial cherry on the sundae...
    comforting piece for weary spirits
