When my heart is breaking
I cry out to You my Lord,
Do you feel my anguish
As it cuts me like a sword?
When I pour out my heart to you
Does it weigh more of less?
Does it register on your scale
This misery of life’s mess.
In my words do you hear
The unspoken cries of my heart?
Those unheard whispers of my soul
That could tear my life apart.
I hear your heart, I know it well
I feel your pain today.
You know, I hear, a melody
As you cry to me and pray.
To me you are a tapestry
Your mess of life displayed.
The side you see is all tied up
With knots that have all frayed
If you could see the other side
Of how you look to me.
My painted landscape of your life
In vivid reality.
