Reflections at Sunset


On the drive home
from the hospital,
I stared out the car window
as the world passed me by.


The day was mourning with me
as clouds covered the atmosphere
but then I watched
the skies open up.


The setting sun
displayed its rays
admist the storms.


Then it hit me
like a gust of wind.


That moment the clouds parted
meant despite the tears
flooding my cheeks,
God was reminding me
that you were with Him.


You were in heaven
where you would never cry again,
and that made me smile.
