And all shall pass

When the storm subsides
And the wind stops howling,
Listen to the silence;
It will speak to you.

Hang in there just some more,
This too shall pass.
The fear will fade;
You are brave.

When love restores your faith,
And trust births in you again;
He will absolve you of all
That now crowds your guilt.

Some more faith,
Some more love,
And all shall pass.
And all shall pass.

Beautiful and touching. 'This too shall pass' four words that can make us happy when we are sad and sad when we are in a joyous mood.
Loads of love, keep smiling :)

@How do we know-- My poem meets its destiny when you say it was timely for you. Best wishes, take care.

@ NM-- It all passes, but we need someone to gently reassure. Yaa, my smile is intact. :) :)

@Homecooked: As fleeting as the delicious food you cook. :D Food also gives so much hope, no?

@Shilpa-- Yes, don't forget the smiles, ever. If at times you can't give, appreciate those smiles you get and that makes all the difference.

@Bhumika-- The mission of that four-letter word is not to make life bearable. Rather, it is to remind you that life is still beautiful outside of your situation. How you be??
