Days of our lives

75 Hits

Days, months, years pass

With the regularity of the tides

The seas of our souls sometimes quiet

Soothed by gentle breezes

Other times trials, sickness, death

Rage like the incessant winds

Of fierce tropical storms

Whose vengeance seems never to cease

Destruction left in their wake

Lives shattered, spirits battered


Slowly, surely  life goes on

Serenity returns; waters calm

Smooth sailing once again

Not always for long

More rains come, tears flow

Challenges blow in from every side

The tides change, sorrow recedes

Tomorrow always comes
