It takes a storm to shake and lift the leaves from the ground,

As they whirl and spin, up and down and around and around.

The branches to break and snap as they crash to the ground.

It takes a storm to clean the dust and cobwebs that masks the beautiful sparkling daylight shutters of life.

It takes the roars of thunder and lightening to wake the sleeping from their fear of living and loving.

It takes the howling winds that lash out and make the body shiver in search for warmth and comfort.

Be the calm amidst the storm and bring sunshine to their lives with your smile.

Se necesita una tormenta para sacudir y levantar las hojas del suelo, Mientras giran y giran, arriba y abajo y vueltas y vueltas.

Las ramas se rompen y rompen cuando se estrellan contra el suelo. Se necesita una tormenta para limpiar el polvo y las telarañas que enmascaran las hermosas persianas de la vida.

Se necesitan los rugidos de los truenos y relámpagos para despertar a los dormidos de su miedo a vivir y amar.

Se necesitan los vientos aulladores que azotan y hacen temblar el cuerpo en busca de calor y comodidad.

Mantén la calma en medio de la tormenta y trae el sol a sus vidas con tu sonrisa.

Por Natasha
