Sing - June 5, 2010



Sing

I listened to the hush that immersed the day
And could not stand the stillness
I felt the deepest hunger in my soul to try to see
What I could do to fill this

This silence worried me and yet I did not know
Exactly what it was I hungered for
I only knew that this discontentment that I felt
Was something I absolutely abhorred

Tears shimmered in my soul at this frustration felt
In this emptiness in which I did abide
While this hunger continued gnawing in my soul
My whole being began to cry

With sudden jubilation, I realized exactly what I needed
To end this emptiness that I felt inside
And as I lifted up my voice in song and sang aloud
My hungering soul no longer cried

And as I lifted up my voice in song and sang aloud
My hungering soul no longer cried". yes my dear neva there is hope!!

You know why I'm here and it isn't because I am some obsessive nut, it is because you owe me some kind of explanation, and that's all I want and I will be gone forever!
Thanks Neva!
