Conversations with God

I fell to my knees and prayed

but received no answer

So I prayed louder,

but the silence remained

So prayed softer and harder

and a soft, warm voice whispered

Be Patient 

And I cried because God above all should know I’m impatient

I know, the voice calls

After all, I made you

Be Patient

I shout through the streaming tears, I’m trying

A warm embrace envelopes,

I know, remember

You are not alone
