When Things Calm Down

When things calm down and all is quiet
The heart stirs with memories, feelings disquiet.

Hard to conceive what has happened
Hard to believe it is now reality.

Chest heaves, tears fall crying
In a crushing rain no one can believe.

Neither can anyone console
Or take this burdened load from you or me.

Yes, when all things are calm and the world seems quiet
The head, the heart are left feeling painfully disquiet.
