Turbulent storm angry and scared,
cried out enraged but no one cared.
Created pains left to repair,
erasing times, leaving despair.

Passive sun rays appeared to see,
the storm was hurt, felt so lonely.
Shined upon it, no guarantee,
as an attempt to stop the spree.

No words were said, offered a hug,
In hopes the storm would feel a tug.
Sun showed it cared by giving love,
calming blast down with warmer snugs.

Gale was surprised to see light near,
a silent cheer dried up all tears.
Sun glowed up close removing fears,
emitting light so blows could clear.

Gust was now thrilled to find a friend,
opened trust up, so shine could blend
knowing full well sorrows can mend,
infinite bonds will never end.

  1. Too timely, my cat buddy Chedda is failing and the “storm” of ill health is raging. I made the decision just now to take him to the vet to end his pain and sadness. Not sure where the sun is, but the good memories of a tender feline spirit will endure. Thanks for the poem

    1. So sorry you are going through this. The sun will come out if not today, but memories will ease your pain. I’m glad to hear you were able to share time and joy with Chedda. Thank you for sharing your experience with me. Glad you enjoyed.❤️
