Peace

Slowly, surely, and all at once
peace has come
to rest its head on my shoulders
and curl up in my lap.

Many days, weeks,
months and
years
have passed since its last visit.

In that time I reached out
thinking,
hoping,
that I could find rest in idols
in people, ideals
perceptions…
appearances.

But now as I sit
and feel the soft fingers of your grace
run through my hair
while your melodies of mercy
tune my ears
back towards your life

I finally feel at peace.
