I've found that grief is not permanent and pain never lasts...
There is always light at the end of a dark tunnel-as surely as day follows a dark night. I wrote this poem in a moment of despair. When I felt aggrieved and totally drained out. I struggled with my broken heart and found the strength to see beyond that grief. These sad moments had also taught me an invaluable lesson and brought me even more close to God.
Rain to Rainbow
by Latika Teotia
I was lonely and I was in pain,
I sat quietly and watched the rain.
With each single drop, my pain did decrease,
I waited with hope for it to cease.
I picked up the broken pieces of my heart,
Even grief, though brief, had played a part.
Lo behold I spotted a rainbow at the end,
In my life, mercifully, it was only a bend.
Thank you, O Lord, for this beautiful life,
And the invaluable lessons I learnt from this strife.
In the absence of pain, grief, problems and strife,
We forget God’s wonderful gift of life.
