When You Are Finally Silent and Alone

Silent and AloneWhen the cold wind
Sweeps around the corner unexpectedly,
Catching you without blanket of words,
And your body shivers as darkness
Passes questions through your mind…..

When all you can do is
Open your mouth and gulp down air,
Feeling it slide down into your lungs
Filling you with living wind,
And it makes no difference at all

Whether you sleep alone at night
Or whether someone is there who cares….
In either case, there are no words that come,
No answer that feels anything like a friend,
Finally you are silent and alone.

Finally you begin to understand.
Words cannot be used to defend
Against the wind that chills the spine.
How many times has it called to you?
Have you yet to learn that God is there?
