Are You Out There?

In the still of the morn
I sit quietly

Sleepy morning
Gray skies, thick summer air
Like a heavy blanket
Muffling the sounds
of life

There is no symphony
of birds, and leaves
and breeze

That plays for me each
Sunny summer morning

The vast gray sky
Both suffocating
and endless
Remind me of my place in the world

Are You really here with me?
Do You know me?
Do You hear my prayers?

Closing my eyes
I surrender my thoughts
to the sleepy silence

Keenly aware
of the stillness
that surrounds me

But then the Hoot Owl coos
from somewhere in the trees
And I'm reminded

...That I'm never alone

Today I Pray...

...with gratitude
for your unfailing presence

Help me to understand Your
gentle "coos"
that whisper through the trees

And give me the confidence
and persistence
to become the person
You want me to be

Help me to see the doors
that open to me

And the ones upon which
I may need to knock

Guide me to step
Across the threshold
Of the door
to my good and true life

May I use this one for the show? It resonated through my soul. Truly.
