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
