In The Quiet


In The Quiet….

I heard a little voice in the quiet

It sounded like somebody said my name

It sounded like your voice in the quiet

As though you’re trying to help me rise again.


I told the little voice in the quiet

I said that I was very scared indeed

I felt your loving warmth in the quiet

I knew that you had come to me in need.


I sat still with your voice in the quiet

I whispered that I felt I couldn’t cope

I heard the words you always used to tell me

That you would always throw me out a rope.


I took the rope you gave me in the quiet

I pulled myself to shore to start anew

Thank you for your wisdom in the quiet


Because of you I know I’ll make it through.
