One Last Ray of Sunshine Before the Storm
as the darkness gathers and the storm, it nears
a ray of sun, of hope, from heavy clouds appears
an exalted power of faith unseen
has sent a healing ray of sun to intervene
gaze upward to the heavens with uttered prayer
let the golden light lift your deep despair
a gift through the darkness, comes this healing light
know that He has heard you and knows of your plight
all stormy weather must move on its way
then blue skies will once again, grace your day
the sun will cast its shadows and the birds will sing
new dreams will arise and the hope they bring~
My lovely sister had breast cancer and a double mastectomy over five years ago. I painted the above painting to auction off at her benefit to help her with medical bills. The poem was written for her and the painting but was private and not part of the auction.
I am so happy to say that my sister rang the bell last October 2016 as a cancer survivor of five years!!!
