sometimes i want to be left alone
so i may relax my weary soul
to slowly gather my thoughts
to organize my fast paced life
to make sense of what is happening around me
but yet there are days when it is too silent and slow
in those hours i long for companionship
someone to talk to and to rely on
but then silence is an underrated treasure
i long for these days of peace
to just catch up my breath
and to listen for that quiet voice we call God

yes He does still talk to us
is that do we slow down and listen?
