Lightning and Thunder

Thunderstorm_over_CorfuIn the night, there’s lightning and thunder;

so, the covers I go under.

The noise and light

interrupt the night

Of sleep and restoring slumber

I am told I need.

Flashes of powerful light

illuminate the night

And fill me with dread,

thus, I try to get lower in my bed.

I can hear the rainfall,

that’s a blessing for us all.

Now, I say to myself to remind me,

“The rain is falling all life can be.”

There’s nothing to fear

God holds me dear.

I can return to my slumber

and not be worried by the lightning and thunder.
