You pause and look at the table,
timeless light spilling over the rough wood,
casting tiny shadows, dark and still.
After years of flux, of constant change,
pain and growth, life has become still,
a pause, a time to take a deep breath
and simply be;
to let the heart grow still
and know once again, God,
to know once again, yourself,
to know once again, love.
