The journey through grief

So vast, dark and uncertain

Where is my compass

 

God, are you with me

I search, eyes closed, heart open

Oh Source of comfort

 

I cry out in tears

A primal ache in my soul

Help me to find you

 

Prayer is hard for me

How do I speak to you God

Tears flow down my cheeks

 

They carry in them

All the words I cannot say

Hear them God, hear them…

 

I ask, Ayekah?

In the still quiet moments

The wind whispers back

 

I listen closely

Hineni, the wind calls out

Here I am, with you

 

The journey is long

The gentle breeze carries me

Forward with God’s grace
