Sunlight above the cloud

When all around is dark and cold,
wind-whipped, stormy-grey.
Biting rain lashing down,
boiling cloud obscuring day.

Storm's chaos rages all around,
our world is rent apart.
It's difficult to see our way,
to maintain strength of heart.

Yet sun still shines above the cloud,
warm hope and brilliant light.
Blue skies, crisp and pure,
and the beauty of starry night.

So it is, when at your worst,
in these dark and gloomy days;
your inner light and beauty,
shine through in so many ways.
