My Journey to God

A Child's Faith

Ominous sky
approaching storm
a mother’s cry
calls us from harm

She gathers us in
with stern command
a motley crew
a frightened band

Safe inside
the candles lit
with rosary beads
on the stairs we sit

“In the name of the Father
and of the Son …”
Our rosary said
the storm is gone.
