When the heart cries to be heard,
yet it shares not a single word
when it yearns to speak to another
yet its voice it can’t uncover.
When the heart needs someone else,
another person stronger than itself
when it feels the tug of deep emotion
and has the need for true devotion.
When the heart ceases its futile search,
and comes down from its high perch
it will see its looked in all the wrong places
for man can’t fill the need for God’s graces.
For the heart that cries and is not heard,
needs to cleave onto the Good Word . . .
there they will find God has an ear
and cries from the heart . . . He’ll always hear.
King James Version
“I love the Lord, because he hath heard my
voice and my supplications. Because he hath
inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call
upon him as long as I live.”
Deborah Ann Belka
