The Peace of God

The Peace of God

your presence
lord
takes all my pieces
and draws me
back into something
whole

as i breathe you in
my lungs
give up their pretence
to hold everything together
and i
exhale

the disquiet
which once filled my chest
is replaced by
the certainty
that all things
work out for the good
of those
who love him
