When I lay my head down tonight it will be with peace in my heart. For too long this was not the case, but tonight my heart is refreshed. A first step towards restoration. The problems of the world persist, rage, roil, and burn. Hope has returned. With it our problems are not solved but solutions can be planned. The storm has come and gone. Blown off like a drizzle in the breeze. The future is never clear, always viewed through a mirror darkly, but tonight when I lay down my head it will be with peace in my heart, and tomorrow when I rise the next step will be clear.
