Every Word You Say
by Erin O'Donnell
Pray without ceasing.
What about those who can't start?
You talk to a ceiling, before long it breaks a heart
But if I am still a moment
Sometimes I can feel You listening..
And You say: Yes I am here!
You don't have to speak so loud
I hear every word you say
Stop trying so hard, you'll wear yourself out
I hang on every word you say
In so many moments
There are things
I cannot say I'm I incoherent?
What can that mean anyway?
In spite of my cynisim
Sometimes I can feel you listening..
It's so hard to think You know Every hair that's on my head And even harder To believe that You hear every word that's said
