When Storms Come

Storms come.
Winds blow and
rains ruin plans.
What you thought would be
will not be.
So when storms come, welcome them.
Enjoy the cool and
take the rest.
What you thought would be
may be later.

Funerals happen.
Loved ones pass and
we are left.
What you knew and loved
has gone.
And when funerals happen, attend them.
Miss your love deeply and
learn life without.
What you knew and loved
lives on.

Bad guys win.
Conniving succeeds and
lying pays off.
What you believed was just
shall not be.
But when bad guys win, love them.
Be sincere and honest and
true to your word.
What you believed was just
can be true in you.

Because life will deal the unexpected, guaranteed.
And those we love we will lose.
And the dishonest sometimes gain.
But we can surf the waves of change,
And love in spite of coming loss,
And be what’s right in the world.
