Thunder claps before the lightning strikes.
At least it did for me, and I learned
how a storm can be a beautiful thing.
The sprinkling rain
felt like kisses on my cheek.
Flutters came along after,
and swept me off my feet.
Everything felt better in the rain
that flooded past my ankles.
Even if it resulted in a sprain
it was still worthwhile.
The thunder was so vibrant,
I wanted it to last forever.
I thought it would have been nicer,
but the thunder was the tip of the iceberg.
After the thunder was over
I had no time to waste.
I tried dancing alone in the rain
and jumped from puddle to puddle.
It just wasn't the same.
When the lightning struck I was lost,
determined to make things work,
I stood tall on the perilous ground.
I would stay until things cleared out.
I refused to let this time be like all the rest!
I wanted to pass the test with flying colors
but I lost myself trying to impress others.
I was stuck in a downpour for what felt like forever.
I let the lightning strike me
but I made it out alive.
I'm smiling up at the sky, in the sunlight
that's peaking out at me.
A storm is a beautiful thing.
I'm so glad that I can call you my friend. We may not talk every day or every month, but, it makes me happy to see how you're doing. You created a great bundle of memories with me and I can't thank you enough for the lesson you helped me to learn. I'm so glad that you're happy and have made such a beautiful life for yourself. I'm proud that I can look back and know that you're a part of my story. Thank you.
