The vi'lent storm is thrashing 'round;
The giant waves upon me pound;
And though I search so desperately
This raging storm - is all I see.

And yet I know - deep down inside
This too will pass - it shall subside;
Yes, this rising tide, this raging sea
It shall not always ravage me.

Dark clouds will pass; the sun will shine
And once again - a calm shoreline;
Oh, the gulls will swoop; my heart will soar;
My soul will sing - like ne're before!

I know He's true; He'll give me rest;
He gives His peace when I'm opressed
Yes, and even 'midst the storms to be
He'll be right there - He'll rescue me!

Smiles...here's to rest and forgiveness...most importantly of yourself.

A sequel stands beyond,
Invisable as music,
But positive as sound."

There is nothing about this piece that is not perfect...the rhyme, the meter, the message.....and the author.
