Warning Flashes

Lightning strikes without a 
warning, 
Unable to cause the heart to 
pound, 
A word, a touch, have sped the 
pulse, 
While violence rages all 
around. 

The bird has learned a song it 
heard, 
While passing through the 
storm, 
Familiar strains, unsung by 
her, 
Well up within the tiny form. 

Can time protect the youthful 
brow, 
As it takes on the years of 
care, 
Can anger quell it's passionate 
song, 
And leave it dying there? 

The moments of colour amid 
the grey, 
Flash wildly as memories 
around her fly, 
Will regret forever the cadence 
be, 
Love marches to as years go 
by?
