It rained. And then, it rained.
Tears fell in remembrance of my brother,
Who took his own life seven years ago.
Turmoil struck the heart of our family.
Grief and guilt became our family creed.
No reason stated, no answers found.
One life lost, four desperately wounded.
A mother’s joy turned into mourning.
A household divided, torn asunder by blame.
Strife and animosity left to finish the task,
Kill them all – from the inside out.
Daily prayer was the weapon of choice.
“Keep the rest us alive until truth be revealed.”
Continuously, it rained.
The freshness of comfort, the newness of truth found.
A reason for his insanity, and the devil’s troops disarmed.
Family guilt removed, strife and grief have no place.
God’s faithfulness realized. Patience performed a perfect work.
Showered by His grace, His presence, His love.
We now know, and life can be lived again. Yes, it rained….
And then, it rained.
