Her prayer

A distant still voice begs for her commitment

Her commitment to listen and obey. Still she see’s no way to listen to hear to do as it says

How can you listen to a voice that is not eternally heard?

She asks

He asks

They ask

Some answers may lie in the peace that quiet brings

Consistent echoes from the bell that always calls her name

The bell tolls and fades into the background most days

She can hear around it as if it doesn’t exist

But today

Today is different

This tolling is persistent and it begs for her to listen

She must for the echo is too loud it overthrows her own voice

She sits there and wonders

She says I think someone is trying to tell me something

A perplexed looks comes across her face

She knows this time its serious

This voice she has never heard before now

I give her the consistent advice I think its time to be quiet and pray

She does

She listens

She hears

She finds faith

I always love happy endings. What better way to conclude this wonderful poem than with the words, "She finds faith."

Thanks for sharing.

Thank to all who have left their comments. My Dad recently passed away and this is the story of how one of my little girls came to find faith and be comforted. It's a moment I will never forget.

Wow! This poem really touched me in a silently powerful way. It provokes many images that we, "the reader" can draw our own conclusion or story. Rated up and Beautiful! Excited to be a new follower.
