Living Life Poetically

Living Life Poetically: Now at Rest

“Now at Rest” is a very short poem that needs little explanation. It takes on the phrase “rest in peace” and expands on it a bit. The phrase is usually a command or wish to the dearly departed. However, this poem is about what it means for their loved ones still here–Especially having lost someone who suffered greatly.

Now at rest,
Rested in peace,

You have gone where sadness and pain,
Cannot be felt again.

Now at rest,
I at peace,

Knowing your pain and woes
Have come to their close.
