If It Hears My Prayers

MY SOUL REPLIES

I wait for you to notice that I’m here—
The color that returns after the rain,
The lilac-scented air, the baby’s laugh,
The melody you hear when lost in prayer.

I wait for you to notice, but your fear
That you are all alone is all you feel.
My gentle touch you brush away. No signs
Are strong enough to prove to you I care.

I wait for you to notice that this pain
Does not belong to you and you alone.
Together we can heal your wounded heart.
I’ll safely keep the secrets that you share.

I wait for you to notice, but it’s clear
You don’t believe my love. I wait in vain.
