COMPENSATION


                                                                                 “Into the Storm”  Watercolor painting by Kayti Sweetland Rasmussen

COMPENSATION

KSR

If it were not for the shadows

We should never have the sun.

If we never had the night-fall

Then day had not begun.

If we never kn ew a heart-ache

Then our soul would never sing.

If we never had a winter

We should never see the spring.

If we never knew the tempest

We should never love the calm.

If we never knew the wounding

We should never feel the balm.

If we never knew some sorrow

Then our hearts could not be gay.

There may never be tomorrow

But we always have today.
