A PIECE OF THE PEACE
The words of doom were spoken over me;
I felt the hot salty tears run down my cheeks.
Panic appeared out of nowhere
And tried to steal my breath away.
My thoughts were suddenly numbed
As a giant wave of grief crashed over me.
I couldn't run away because my feet were
Stuck in the mud of despair.
Then panic was pushed aside by words
That welled up from my spirit,
"I will never leave you nor forsake you.
I give you Peace, not as the world knows, but
My Peace is with you always."
Oh what glory! Oh what joy!
As a piece of The Peace lit up my world.
Whatever the future holds, I do not know
But this small piece is enough Peace
To help me through today.
We share in the huge loss of four American soldiers who were husbands, fathers, sons, friends and successes in life. Though their lives were short in years, they lived full lives. They made a difference in our world and for all these reasons will be remembered and missed.
