Peace Always Comes

Palestine Peace

As despair pours from the eyes and the heart bleeds from pain, solitude crawls in and with it comes peace
As the past fades out and the present looks bleak, the future peeks through cracks and with it comes peace
As the mystery unfolds itself and the truth reveals all deceit, the strife eases on and with it comes peace
As the storm settles and the rainbow dazzles in the sky, the breeze softens hustle and with it comes peace
As the anger quashes in the chest and the call to forgive is out, the heart quells and with it comes peace
As hurt overwhelms the mind, body and soul, the will to keep the fight recedes and with it comes peace
As hate reins deep and the devil touts its game, angels do not fail, bring reprieve and with it comes peace
As the cold freezes my veins, a hand reaches out, holds me close, calms me down and with it comes peace
As the commotion rises and tires my mind, an intent voice listens in patience, and with it comes peace
As the pain tears my heart, those tender hazel eyes soak the pain, ease the hurt, and with it comes peace
As the life seems in vain and the desire to live is gone, a soft voice calls for me and with it comes peace
As the day wears down and the darkness falls from the sky, a new dawn breaks and with it comes peace
Peace always comes, it seldom faulters or betrays, it never fails or forsakes, peace always comes……
