Been up since 4 AM,
Listening to the silence of a sleeping house.
Listening for the still, quiet voice of You.
Listening with expectant ears.
Listening with a hopeful heart.
This world is noisy and my ears are tired.
Too many voices.
Too many sounds.
But now the silence, oh the silence.
[Distant car engine outside]
Even those small noises are loud.
Longing for silence, if just for a moment.
I need Your voice.
