Quiet before the Storm

Quiet before the storm
No sign of what’s to come
Silence, hours after dawn
Still warmth of the sun
No one seems to know
Though I’m feeling sick
Stomach shaking so
The news approaches quick
A last look into eyes
Innocent until they hear
Parents groans and sighs
The maelstrom very near
A last laugh out loud
A smile of loving care
Then into a veil of cloud
Strong winds you cannot bare
Words stick in the throat
Sound carries meanings raw
No attempt to sugar coat
The fact we are no more
What was one is now
Split and separate
No point in why or how
The break is definite
So convey the message
Say that you do feel
Keep the young ones safe
But tell them this is real
They will adapt to change
The fix here is for the best
Future happiness arranged
In two divided nests
Their eyes forever wiser
You hope their hearts will trust
You’ve been honest, fair
And your reasoning is just
