Peace Returning Like the Tide

 

Peace Returning Like the Tide

 

 

I feel peace returning like the tide
drowning the memories
silencing the sounds
cleansing my pain.

The peace wraps around me
like the gentle arms of a friend
bringing care and comfort
in the healing touch of love

Peace fills the empty places
and lets me breathe again
settling over me softly
like sheets resting on skin.

Peace draws me into sweet
silence, and sleep comes
reaching for me in the night
curling around my mind.

Peace returns like the tide,
and with a grateful heart,
I close my eyes and let it
gently carry me to God

    The peace that comes in like the tide is like the peace that comes with the gradual awareness of the presence of God within
