Aftershocks – When I Am Gone
An earthquake is a grand event
It changes land and life.
The aftershocks that follow
Cause as much, if not more, strife.
A thunderclap will rumble
After lightning strikes the ground.
Its laser devastation
Can be heard for miles around.
First comes the impact,
Next comes the pain.
It’s impossible to stay dry
When faced with driving rain.
But the sun still shines beyond our sights.
Though rain clouds stay a- while
So when your raindrops hit the ground
Please think of me and smile.
