When Peace Comes and Goes

When peace comes

It can be a surprise

For in the midst of turmoil

Its calm assurance

Rests unwavering.


When peace comes

It touches us inside-

Body, mind and spirit- all at once;

Disarming all worry, pain and understanding.


Long after the calm has passed

It is still at work,

Within us, shaping

A hope filled memory.

We yearn for peace to return.


When peace comes

And goes,

Eluding our grasp,

It leaves behind

An astonishing lesson-

Peace resides within us

And it waits for us

To accept its presence.
