The Ticking of the Clock

20131124_231556

As I wait for you

I hear the ticking of the clock,

the sound is so loud

your voice is blocked.

It’s hard to hear you

when the ticking’s so loud.

Though I try and try

your voice can’t be found.

Dear precious Lord,

please send your voice

to drown out the noise.

Please show me you are here

and dry up my tears.

As the clock keeps ticking,

I will be waiting and listening.

      No worries Anne I do know God can hear me. Sometimes it just seems like the noises of life will sneak in on my prayer time which is frustrating to me. I hope you are doing well 🙂
