Before The Storm - Poem by Valerie Dohren
Before the storm the sky was blue,
As blue as blue can be -
The air was sweet, so sweet to breathe,
And you were next to me.
We saw the flowers bloom in Spring
And watched the songbirds nest -
The world was full of wonderment
As fondly we caressed.
And all around the sun shone bright,
The trees did softly sway
Touched by a gentle summer breeze
That chased our cares away.
But then the sky grew overcast
And rain-clouds gathered high -
A darkness fell upon the land
To shadow you and I.
The rain fell down upon our joy
To drown the life we knew -
It drenched our hearts, subdued our souls,
Destroying me and you.
For now you’re gone, and I am here
Beneath a shadowed sky -
The storm has passed, but I am left
Forever here to cry.
