Extravagant love

August 5, 2009

The voices that I hear
Are the ones who are not speaking
Their silence is screaming out
I do know their pain
Suffering is the teacher
It is one I did not choose
Desperation silenced me
I now have language
All along the way
People have arisen here
I did not know I needed
Their voices touched me
Their presence ignited me
A fire lit up my soul
Friendship sets me free
To listen to the heartbreak
And wait in silence
Compassion invites me in
Only my tears tell my heart
It is the language of tears
It is my deepest desire
To make real what is the truth
Extravagant love
