Listen




We forget in our humaness

to keep seeing
hearing
feeling
for those around us

Life gets busy

Maybe in fact...
we never really truly stopped and listened


because

When the world gets so loud
with responsibilities

bills

laundry

brokeness

life..

But I hope you always hear me
in silence there is meaning beyond measure

I hear you..
I feel you
I know you, and when we are disconnected somehow

I promise to stop for a moment
and go to
the in between

listen to the music in the background
that is you
always playing in my head


I hope we will always listen
to never forget
that we are human
and we need to feel
others around us.

Very nice. This reminds me of something Mother Teresa said when she was being interviewed (I’m not Catholic but who doesn't like Mother Teresa?) – the interview went something like this:

Q: What do you say when you pray to God?

A: I don't say anything, I just listen.

Q: And what does God say?

A: He doesn't say anything, he just listens. I’m sorry, If you don’t understand that, I can’t explain it to you.
