the sweet


voice of the lord


“I love you”

into the turbulence of my mind.

the Creator Spirit

cradles me and croons

it in my ear

“I love you”.

she sneaks up on me

from time to time

puts it out there quickly

“I love you”

and darts away.


I hear her

but somehow the Voice

doesn’t reach

the cold places of my heart

and I cannot believe it.
