storms ahead
but this time I'm not going to flinch when the lighting strikes
with a mighty hand
at the pavement of stability
for I have dreamed too long of something so close
and near perfection is what I would keep with me.
storms ahead
no words could pain me now but goodbye
no judgement could find its way to my heart
as long as there is a protection of belief
covering every part of what will be.
and so let the sky open wide
let the wind blow maliciously
let the thunder scream until it is hoarse
and the rain
let it pound against my rolled up window.
even a storm looses its fury
and so I am not afraid of crossing a flood
to hold the hand of meant to be.

How grave is my condition, for I cannot find the words to say, I need you so.

you know something. . . this does not belong back here. . . such powerful words. . .

I have a feeling that all of us will soon have storms of our own. . . may we all have this kind of resolve. . .

Damn, this is good!  Love the title.

Completely and complete
