“Looking to the Sweet Presence of G-d”
(written for a colleague on her father’s passing)
by Rabbi Eli Mallon, M.Ed., LMSW

Oh, L-rd,
Your Peace
is perfect
and complete
 
Peace unshakeable,
like silence
in a winter forest;
unmoving,
like warmth
on a cornfield
in July
 
Growing
in me
like a seed
blossoming;
like the full moon
on a clear night;
like a sip of water
on a hot day.
 
The righteous command,
and G-d obeys.
I, imperfect, declare:
You fill the heart
of those
who let You
be known.
