The Calm

Looking back I see

Devastating decisions

That were destructive


My own and others

Forgiveness is what’s needed

Who is willing to give


Can my tears be seen

Are the cries of my heart heard

Looking back I know

In the stillness of the night

I heard a gentle whisper


“You are forgiven”

These words were sweet to my ears

Rooted in reality

There’s a place of rest

Where I found joy in the storm

The calm that brings certainty
