Dark clouds reined the sky
Even the sun looked away
But no one knew
No one knew till the very day
No one knew!
Until it all happened ! Suddenly!
As in the days of Noah
Even as the rain was pouring
People were eating , drinking, being merry
Fighting, pushing and rushing in a hurry
But Suddenly! As the dams turned
The water came !
And suddenly ! There was no where to go !
No Noah ; No ark!
Only water everywhere!
Water in homes, Water in hospitals
Washing away all our precious things
Drowning our very own loved ones
Stranded , shattered and starving
As we watched helplessly from roof tops
The city of once glory
Was sinking now in this sudden deluge
Thankfully though !
The good lord is above ; and his grace and mercy reigns
And so; there is still hope for mankind!
As the floods drowned the ego of every man
And washed away all their colors, masks and differences
Love rose as the ark of Noah
And compassion saved the sinking city !
Every man became a good Samaritan
Every man became a noble Noah
One was there for the other
And the other was there for one
All united ! Beyond cast creed and conditioning
The city rose above the flood waters
The city won over the sudden deluge
The skies have cleared now
And the water has receded
Oh Lord ! As the winter sun now shines bright again
We just hope and pray!
This ark of your Love remains!
