Finding Peace

when his wife died

my grandpa was fifty three

~

she left twelve children

ages five to twenty two

~

sorrow, sadness

engulfed their hearts

~

their love

shouldered long years

~

restless anxiety

transitioned

to calm peace

~

grandpa told my mom

I have an appointment

with jesus

at six o’clock in the morning

~

he told his daughter

I’m with the lord

~

two months later

he died peacefully

at eighty nine
