My Words

All I can send

Are words.

I'll never know

How far they reach.

I'll never know

If it was enough.

.

I keep trudging on,

A fire in my soul;

A determination

In my green eyes;

A healthy fear

Tight in my chest.

.

The world I live in

Has little left of it's beauty.

But beauty

There still is.

Despite the harsh surroundings,

Beauty there still is.

.

God, train my eyes,

To know when I see it.

God, open my eyes,

to recognize the grace.

God, sharpen my view,

That I may not despair.

.

All I can send

Are my words.

I pray that they heal

…and guide.

They are naught

But inspired nonsense.

.

In me there is harbored

An unknown, unexplained feeling,

A tender ache,

A tremendous love.

I hope for you,

Send peace to you.

.

All I can send

Are my words.

I'll never know

How far they reach.

I'll never know

If it was enough.
