Heart’s Ease

For Orlando and our LGBTQ brothers and sisters.


Heart ache

Heart break

Soul cast down

Violence, fear, hate

Confusion abound.

When the Cold War ended, we sighed with relief.

Now our kids will be safe, their kids will be free.

But someone’s kids were still hurting —

And someone lashed out.

Towers fell

We tasted hell

Violence, fear, hate

Our world still unwell

No heart’s ease could be found by another broken soul

His pain and his gun and his obscene death toll



Club kids bleed out

Violence, fear, hate

Inside and out.

I know love is the answer, but tonight I can’t see

Through the tears that keep falling. Where is heart’s ease?


Last affliction

God on a cross

Violence, fear, hate

Took even Him from us.

But his great affection for us is still strong.

He’ll be our heart’s ease if we can hold on.

White dove

From above…

Violence, fear, hate

Will fall to his love.
