The thunder roars causing a swift breeze

The house starts to shake with unease

The rain falls like crystals in the sky

The children lay awake after their parents say goodbye

The orchestra of noises gently rocks people to sleep

While children lie awake counting their sheep

Each strike of lighting awakens the room

But morning will come very soon

The dark grey clouds make the day seem like night 

Children hold on to stuffed animals extra tight

Little dogs tremble with fear

Waiting for the storm to quickly disappear 

When the lightning drifts away

And the clouds refuse to stay

The thunder dies down 

Now you feel safe and sound
