Peaceful Resolution

My mind
Can hardly
Separate
The words
From melody
Notes rising
And falling…one
After the other
In seasons of distress and grief
Can you hear it?
I silently sing
The phrase
As I write-
Many times
It has entered
My thoughts
Unannounced…
Waiting for
A phone call
Sitting in a
Hospital room
Driving to
A funeral…
The music repeats
Easing tension
On the last note
The last word
Of the new phrase
My soul has often found relief
Listen closely
A peaceful
Resolution
Sweet hour of prayer

  1. This made me cry~it was so beautiful. In the last 5 weeks I’ve experienced a dear loss in our family and my adult kids coming home with the two grand babies. It’s been up and down like your notes. I sang along with you. Thank you for being such an encouragement to us all. ❤️🙏🏻
