can man in his evil thwart everlasting peace

:to stare into the eyes of the grim reaper
:to try to understand.

yet then, remember, “that’s right,
i died.”
–in unreasonable pain that all
left as quietly
as a feather finding its breeze.

to join the one,
joy overwhelmed–
no, took the place
of all worry.
it was like i understood all
and only the all mattered.

would be there, still,
if the baby had not cried;
my soul returned …. from where?

it isn’t a where,
it’s a when of all ages.

so this night i closed my eyes and slept,
remembering that
it’s not so much belief
in god or jesus or eternity,
as it is touching
creation and smiling
