Thought I’d share this with you all… Hope it blesses someone!
There she sits,
Quiet and calm, staring through the eyes of her hurricane
the breeze brushes her face,
teasing her eyes as the tears came.
with her hand she brushed them off,
little glistens of sorrowful dew discarded just like that
and she returned to her withdrawn state.
hands folded on her lap.
faces pass by, examining the expressions of her heart’s mirror
clueless, they simply walk by
little do they know of the storm that brews inside
for silence is her loudest cry.
Why do you sorrow dear?
Your silence deafens my ears.
Your distance screams at me;
There’s nothing else I hear.
Your gaze longs for rest,
A reprieve from what burdens you
You look upon me in silence
and there’s nothing I can do.
But I know of one who hears the voice inside your soul
He sees the tears that eek out your spirit
In your quiet time where the winds rage
He sees, and knows of it.
All who are heaven laden, draw nigh
For Jesus Christ can give you rest.
I may not hear what your heart is roaring,
Although I try my best.
I turn you over now
To find your solace in Him
For Your silence to be broken by a still, small voice,
And His love to come pouring in.
