    I can see the beautiful rainbow

    It’s colors glisten and shine

    Irridecent, transparent and sparkly

    A beauty so divine


    It always makes its appearance

    After the stormiest days

    For then the sun comes out

    Casting its beautiful rays


    The storms are our hardships

    The sudden forbidding mishaps

    Our challenges, our nisyonos

    The unexpected current of zaps


    The storm is surely needed

    We all know its amazing worth

    Plants get fed and nourished

    Then food they can give forth


    When you have a challenge

    Know there is good that’s hiding

    For every grey cloud

    Has a silver lining


    Dig out all your courage

    You didn’t know you possess

    Only after repeated failure

    Can one attain success


    Train your mind now

    So you develop your perception

    See the good in all life brings

    Leave no room for deception


    So when troubles come, and they will

    Don’t lose much sleep or heart

    Gather your enthusiasm

    Don’t allow yourself to fall apart


    There is something amazing lurking

    Beneath the pain and sorrow

    Adversity carries a seed

    To plant a greater tomorrow!

    Chaya, it’s gorgeous. The metaphor is amazing and the rhyme and rhythm are gorgeous.

    You seem to take a challenge and use it as an opportunity to encourage others.

    You’re an inspiration, friend.

    Baruch Dayan Emes. I’m so sorry. But I see how you are processing this difficult time, drawing on chizuk that you were surely raised with and must be a great zechus for your father’s neshama. HaMakom yenachem eschem b’soch she’ar aveilei Tziyon VYerushalayim.
