And I Realized
A warm summer sun sends rays of light
Earthward accompanied by a cool breeze
Seemingly witnessing my wife's pretty face
Lighting up my heart with her smiles.
Squeezing her soft hand while watching
Two ducks swimming together in a pond
I stand wondering is their relationship
The same as two human beings in love.
Casting my eyes upward a cloud drifts
Towards the sun casting a dark blanket
As it does the skies suddenly darken
Soon the stubborn sunlight reappears.
And I realized:
During the course of our earthly lives
Moments of despair will often appear
But family love can replace darkness
With light and everlasting love.
