Rest

I need rest.
Not just quiet,
Not just sleep,
but rest.

Not just my body,
Not just my mind,
But my heart needs rest.

So many around me hurting,
So much loss,
So much need.

Yet I cling to hope,
Through tearful eyes,
Upon tired knees,
On this solid rock
of promise and faith.

My eyes might not see it yet,
My hands may not have felt it,
My tongue may not yet recognize
the sweet taste of victory.

But I will find rest tonight
not just because the day was hard,
but because tomorrow is a new day,
and I will make it one day at a time.

Goodnight,
And rest well my friends.
