That Day


Warnings came days before,
Life as we knew it would be no more.
The clouds rolled in from west to east,
People prepared for the beast.
The winds blew through Alabama towns
Many woke and nothing found.
A child's cry and a mothers hug,
Many looked but could only shrug.

250 or more paid the price,
As Mother Nature cut a slice.
The sun came out the next day,
People realized the price they paid.
Alabama and Auburn chants no more,
Together as one forever more.
The hand of God touched many that day,
Knowing full well the price some paid.
One may ask why I was spared,
The answer is that God cared.
