The Blessing

A blessing bursts through on a rainy day It came without blemish and shame But with happiness and mirth Tears filled my heart's pores As the rain of guilt fell more and more But light poured through and opened a door I stand upon a sun-shined path The rain falls light as the blessing is insight Hovering its luminous aura around my life We shed tears and feel the pain and sorrow Sometimes not even aware of the good coming tomorrow The blessing is life The ability and opportunity to live Self-realization and heartwarming epiphanies Take away the pangs of tribulation My eyes are open - I can see And breathe in the blessing given to me December 15, 2012

    Great perspective... It is very hard to see good when only pain seems present, and I agree... "the blessing is life".
