Shabbat Shalom

As I sit here,
I feel so warm and comfortable, all stress is gone,
My loaded mind is finally clear.
I haven't felt so calm in awhile,
And all I can help but do is smile,
This room filled with happy, joyful people,
My family makes me so relaxed, there's nowhere else I'd rather be. I stare
At objects in the room. My emotions no longer in an exploding flare
Of hot flames. I look into my grandmother's eyes.
Now they're filled with the joy of a brilliant sky,
Now I look over and see
My grandpa lying down in his sleep, his thoughts free,
To roam around.
Peace I have finally found.
We are all finally together, my
Family and I.
