He is there by Linda Newman
When sorrow lies entrenched within your heart
And doubts, like ocean waves around you churn
When chaos reigns o'er life and won't depart
And for the peace of yesterday you yearn
When evil thoughts are tearing you apart
And there is nowhere left for you to turn
When dark of night persists, throughout your day
It's time to fall upon your knees and pray
It always amazes me how resilient children can be. Under the most adverse conditions, many rise to the challenge and succeed in life - because of having a positive attitude. This poem is for all the children of rain who found a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.Pays one point and 2 member cents.
