Gary Allen has a new song out called “Every Storm (Runs out of Rain)” that strikes a cord with me, especially deep down in my heart. It is not only touching emotionally, but it also has a way of sticking with me mentally as well. There are times when I find myself repeating the chorus of the song over and over in my mind.
“every storm runs, runs out of rain
just like every dark night turns into day
every heartache will fade away
just like every storm runs, runs out of rain”
Grief is kind of the same way, it runs out of strength so what ever storm you are going through slowly fades. With the loss of a child, that grief does and will fade, however it never fully goes away. It looses it’s strength and it’s hold. I will forever miss Samantha, that will never change. There will still be some what might of been moments, uneasiness with pregnancies, and some sadness around special days but as time passes by I will continue to heal and the storm won’t be so strong. With healing I will be able to find joy instead of sadness on those days and a with a renewed perspective I will continue to grow. This storm may never completely run out of rain, but it won’t stay a storm forever. One day it will become a light rain, refreshing the surroundings around me and washing the memories over me. Remember that with every storm things are different. Each takes it’s own path and it’s own time to run out. But, by surrounding yourself by those who understand and letting your voice be heard, you will begin to heal and you can find strength again.
Take a listen to this beautiful song. I hope you can find the strength you need to work through your storm.
