Hurricane Sandy


Hurricane Sandy hit like an atom bomb
Consuming the helpless in her path.
The waters of the deep surged forth
Flooding everything with its wrath.

The best of the brave was seen by man
While rescue crews were helping others.
They risked their life and laid it on the line
To save our sisters and brothers.

May heaven show mercy upon the lost
Never to love, laugh sing or cry
God bless every man, woman and child
Who before their time had to die.

    FAITH & MOMENTARY COURAGE = HURRICANE SANDY!

    So perfect is nature, though not by man
    It's the brush of our Master that paints the land.
    The sun comes up and sun goes down
    As in every direction God's wonders are found.

    The tide comes in and the tide goes out
    Our faith in eternalness is what life is about.
    Contentment depends on which path we walk
    By daylight or darkness; our faith is our rock.

    Our confidence and trust in a higher power
    Helps guide us through every moment and hour.
    Fidelity to one’s promise and observance of law
    Lets our Lord know we heed His call.

    MOMENTARY COURAGE

    Momentary courage helps preserve mankind
    When our angel within is allowed to rise.
    Men, women, children, kings and presidents
    Are blessed by deeds not falsehoods and lies.

    Be it soldier, fireman, policeman or physician
    All have known the rush of courage.
    To many among us think just of our self
    In our world full of crime and discourage.

    Thank God for the extraordinary
    Who arrive by birth in every race.
    Committing what’s right to preserve what’s true
    Despite the agents of hate and disgrace.

    Washington, Lincoln, Roosevelt and Kennedy
    Truman, Bill Clinton and George Bush too.
    Had their moments of momentary courage
    And the rest is up to me and you.

    TEARS

    Tears are the raindrops of the soul
    And there's one for all who die.
    They are the silent words of grief
    As they fall free from the eye.

    The shortest verse in the Bible
    Is the one where Jesus wept
    So, if you hold back tears, shed them
    When your pain is too harsh to accept.

    Tears are lovelier than a smile
    When they come from those you love
    As they seek relief from sadness
    When you're summoned from above.

    Tears are a love-mates humble gift
    When it's time to say goodbye
    Though the eyes are wet and swollen
    With time and patience they dry.

    SORROW

    Sorrow is better than laughter
    For by grieving, we're improved.
    Blessed be all who morn
    Till from sadness they're removed.

    After death our souls shall fly
    Perhaps from star to star
    Reaching our destination
    To find Heaven’s gate ajar.

    God made us able to cry
    Sorrow teaches us to fear
    Those days we’re selfish and cruel
    When life is so short and dear.

    Time wipes tears from all faces
    Whose hearts are tuned to sorrow.
    Those that cry a thousand tears
    Shall be blessed by tomorrow.
