With power and love

A friend called me and asked how I was doing.  I responded,  “I am in perfect peace, in a perfect storm.”  Later in the evening, I wrote this poem as a reflection of my day.

 

The storm is raging

The Prince of Peace calls us near

He speaks to the storm

 

I’ll give attention

To one who calms the storm

With power and love

 

He spoke with authority

And the sea that was raging

Became still and quieted

A sight to behold

 

The fear in the storm

Came from inside my being

The storm wasn’t the open sea

But my broken heart

 

The grief was overwhelming

Pain I had no language for

All of my dreams were shattered

Peace is what I needed
