View from my kitchen window...a poem

view from my kitchen window

2011 - the world is a place of pain, brokenness, suffering, greed, confusion
But I wake up to the sunrise peeking through my window
The man of my dreams holding me tight
The colors of autumn leaves flying around outside
And all is right for a minute.

The cover of Time magazine reveals world problems
Uncertainty of what tomorrow brings
The kitchen may not be in one piece 
But I am warmed by a cup of hot cocoa 
And my feet are not cold
And all is right for an hour. 

Children without love
Parents without a means to provide
Families without homes
Seems like all has fallen apart
But a smile from a child who has lost everything
Makes the world right for a day. 

Darkness fills the street
Sirens rush to help
People shouting
But I hear a sound - singing
A song of love, a song of Christ
A choir of voices singing proudly
And I know that all is still alright.
