A Poem for Thought

 After The Storm Birds Do Sing

While in a storm tears become a thing
Once it's past one learns to use one's voice
Because after the storm birds do sing

In a storm emotions it does bring
One's being to this given no choice
As while in a storm tears become a thing

After new life is brought as in spring
As one got through in it to rejoice
Because after the storm birds do sing

In the storm hard, but with God by one side
He holds one's hand in letting one know
In this to it's end He does provide

Although in it one's voice does come slow
As tears turn into a shout of joy
It's over as one sings a hymn bestow

In times a storm comes to one to destroy
As in a storm tears become a thing
But with God strength given as its convoy
Because after the storm birds do sing

Thoughts: Ever notice how much and loud birds sing after a storm has past. Seems, it's the joy of making it through and of knowing a future is ahead that gives them their voice. Storms do pass and with God He can give one strength to get through in looking to one's future. Although hard in the mist of a storm when emotions can run high and one may shed a tear or two, once through a hymn of joy can grace one's life in trusting God to see one through. Given to this, perhaps much and loud in one's joy to sing as after the storm birds do sing.
