If Peace should come in the darkest hours when all is quiet & near the end,
Then I shall sit in silence, most still
eyes closed yet focused on the outside
If Peace should come at first days light
As the outside stirs, waiting patiently to begin
Then I shall rise in silence, most calm
eyes open, heart beating, thankful for this moment once again.
If Peace is but a mystery to you,
something pined for, yet unable to be attained.
Then I shall sit in silence with you,
Listening as you free yourself from worry, released from the clanging shackles of misery, hurt & pain.
If Peace seems of little use to you, a childish notion only a fool would seek to claim.
Then I shall smile & whisper: Peace Be with You
For this fool found Peace in chaos, found calm in both the noise and the silence,
and hopes that you will know the same.
Peace Be With You
