When Longing Prayers Meet

When Longing Prayers Meet

Somewhere in the world
a heart is longing for a word
of loving support,
some show of kindness
to feel someone is there,
who hears a silent prayer.

Somewhere in the world
someone is wondering
if anyone cares.

Somewhere in an unknown place
another heart is longing
to offer an embrace
to sing a song of hope and grace,
to give and share the prayer
and be the one who cares.

Somewhere out in empty space
the longings touch,
and a face comes into view.
Where there were two apart
the two become as one
reaching for the sun.

We will never know how many times,
when we cry out in the night,
a light goes on in someone’s room,
as someone hears our prayer
and begins to sing a lullaby
to soothe the lonely cry.

Love keeps a vigil night and day
to catch the silent tear that falls,
for love knows when someone calls,
there is someone on the way
to kiss away the tears
and calm the mounting fears.

Love may be found in the softness
and sound of the brush of wings,
in the nearness of a friend,
or in words that fall upon this page,
but for each heart that is broken,
somewhere a prayer is spoken.
