The Clouds Soon Roll By - Poem by shirani ibrahim

The hailstorm brought in blocks and pebbles of ice that around us lay
The rain waters hitting the windows a scary rhythm it harshly did play
The dark grey clouds charioted by the winds of anger as into space I gazed
Sent shivers down my spine as I tasted the salt that kissed my lips and I stood dazed
The memories of those who passed through my life, touched me with good grace.
With strength that never failed to wade the rocky waters of life's uncertain race.
Hands stretched out near and far the distance mattered not; the many miles apart.
Those tender special moments engraved deeply, now lies a memory in my heart.
With a bond so sweet to be cherished, a strength that changed the course of life,
To face many slains with the sweetest fragrance, clouding many a worldly strife.

From acoss the many oceans volumes of sky and through the troubles beyond me came a hand a heart with softness that helped me make it thorugh the night..right or wrong it did not matter cos a heart saved and was not shattered..
