Silence

I pray.

I pray and I pray.

Silence.

 

I yell.

I yell and I yell.

Silence louder still.

 

My daughter once told me she prayed.

Cuddled in pink sheets,

bugs of anxiety still crawled.

“Dad, I prayed. Nothing happened.”

“I know.”

Silence, even to the sweet.

 

I wait.

I wait and I wait.

 

In the halls of heaven

unseen

He has heard

even the first whisper.

Groans grabbed by God, the Spirit.

Given to God, the Son.

Laid before God, the Father.

 

I will pray

tomorrow.

I will pray and I will pray.
