Death Overtakes You

Death Overtakes You
Death overtakes you like a summer storm.
It’s upon you.
Darkness covers your world...
Fear grips you. 
Consumes you.

The lightning appears.
It reveals things you did not see.
Things you forgot.
The thunder roars.
You hear things you did not hear.
Rain quenches;  
Washing away your sorrow and pain.
Carrying away your tears.
The sun comes out again 
And everything is new,
and sweet,
and cool.
A rainbow appears
against the ominous backdrop of black thunderheads.
You are taken by the impact of the moment.
A life,
Such an awesome force,
And what it left behind…
The promise of you.
Mary Dunne
