I am putting away the cloak of Winter
To eagerly embrace the green of Spring.
I pray for the soft pattering sounds
Of raindrops falling on my window panes.
I wait on the porch for the sweet smell
Of spring rain that will clear away the
Signs of hardships winter has brought.
The Saucer Magnolia Tree by my front step
Is filled with different hues of pink blossoms
And heavenly scents that fill up my senses,
And beauty causes my soul to come undone.
I am reminded by God that the winters of
Dark despair will soon be replaced by the
New growth that comes with falling tears.
Tears that can wipe away the pain
That comes from a life-time of loss.
