So much is coming from the bottom;
   this is the deepest one could be.
From such a deficit, what else but gain;
   you'll soon see how rich you are.

Weigh this time for its value;
   there's good coming beyond this loss.
I'm ready to applaud for your success
   as we'll see you come back for more.

Love and hope is coming,
   with much compassion;
      we all know it could've been us.
I have a sense how much you'll measure;
   I may get see the man you truly are.
Your assets will be found in many hearts,
   many faces, many words, many embraces.
It will almost be the best that could happen
   was to lose so much to gain far much more.

Then the next sound you'll hear
   is me applauding in your favor.

© Bob Barra, 11-1-2012

Addressed to a survivor of Sandy.
