Yesterday I sat with pen and paper,
trying to speak with you,
something new I decided to try.
Perhaps you would have the answers
to all the questions that fill me.
As I wrote those things I wished to know,
you were there, but only watching.
You spoke only to try and reach me
and tell me to stop
as you have done so often.
Stop doubting the voice in my heart.
Stop trying to find the answers.
Those answers will come in time,
when I am ready to hear them.
It took me hours to hear your voice,
as no doubt you watched me struggle
hearing only my doubts and fears
filling me with pain and sadness.
You spoke with strength yesterday
bending your shelter over me
telling me to be strong in the face of waiting.
As I have sent my love to you
to steady you when you are weary,
so it has returned to me.
I feel your hands behind me
and your arms around me.
Listen to the voice deep in your heart
and know that you hear all that you need.
