A Wind

A wind that blows and lingers
it brought relief and calm to all
it left a freshness of warmth and joy along its path
this wind comforts and sooths aches and pains
it was flesh but did not live after the flesh

Though a man, his was the life of a noble man
Winds are different, some gentle, others ferocious,
His was gentle and welcoming

He tempared hatred with love
Evil with good
Sadness with Joy
Sorrow with laugher
Pain with praise
Causes with blessings

He believed all things,
Hoped for all things
Suffered long and endured all things

This wind was my dad,
though gone, lingers still
as a cool refreshing warmth from pain.
