A Heart that Listens
Imagine for a moment,
A single moment in time,
When all the distractions
And nonsense noise,
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❤️
