A Heart that Listens

Imagine for a moment,

A single moment in time,

When all the distractions

And nonsense noise,

Spontaneously stopped,

Even the birds are silent.

Imagine that atmosphere,

We see and nothing said,

All that’s been muffled

Has now taken on this life.

Would we notice that lady crying,

Would we help the man in pain,

How much more could we do

How much more we would gain.

We would see the elderly struggling,

We would see her sudden change

We would watch his self distraction,

And just maybe offer a hand to hold.

Maybe We’d hug fellow strangers,

Maybe We’d smile to say hello.

Children could play in safety again

Relationships could heal and grow.

If the noise fades away, and we really

open our eyes,

We’d really hear our world because we’d

listen with Our hearts❀️
