A silent symphony of calm

Within which we rest

How much we are blessed

And how much we forget

Angels surround us

Fear sets up its barricades

And rains down busy judgements

Which don’t allow us to see

The gifts that wait for us in silence

When the cacophony is done

We resist loosening the shackles

Of our stories and pain

And stop ourselves descending

Into the burning flames that would transform us

But once we surrender

Peace steals in on silent feet

We wake to find ourselves

At rest in a green field

All pain spent

Surrounded on every side

By an ocean of peace
