Peace

1
When I get your love letters,
when your eyes crinkle when you smile and my heart fills with joy,
when we meditate and pray together,
when we walk in the woods,
when we cook together in our tiny kitchen in the enchanted cottage,
when you hold me and tell me I’m your fairy princess.

2
When I draw from my heart and make monsters and maidens,
when I play my guitar and finger-pick the hours away,
when I write a poem or story,
when I stand naked under hot streaming water,
when I talk to my friends,
when I talk to God.

3
When the wolves have left the door,
when I’m in faith instead of fear,
when I’m quiet and still,
when my spirit is free,
when I want nothing I don’t have
when I see myself in your eyes.
