WHISPERS SPEAK LOUDER

You walk beside me

and hold my hand.

I STUMBLE AND FRET

WONDERING . . .

“WHERE ARE YOU?”

I pray,

knowing you love me.

My fear shouts.

Despite the heat,

I shiver . . .

I feel alone.

The voices of my loneliness

are so loud that panic sets in.

I jump!

“What WAS that?”

and see the bird.

They are so beautiful that I stop  . . .

softly,

sweetly,

the birds upstage my fear

and I know your presence.

Foolishly,

I forgot your promises,

your love.

I knelt beneath the tree

and wept.

I called, needing your nearness

and realized you were always there.

Your love lifted me up

AS ALWAYS.
