The Language of Tears

June 17, 2012

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

~

Dedicated to Julie
