In Silence, I Listen

by Reverend Bob Coulson
(Paducah, Kentucky)

In silence, I listen.
I listen in the shadow of your story…and I hear it all.
The pain of your losses, and the gains, in your bond of love.

In silence, I listen.
I listen in the shadow of your story…and I see it all.
The burdens of passing, and the blessings of living, in your bond of love.

In silence, I listen.
I listen in the shadow of your story…and I smell it all.
The pungency of sorrow, and the fragrance of joy, in your bond of love.

In silence, I listen.
I listen in the shadow of your story…and I feel it all.
The insensitivity of others, and the sensitivity of you, in your bond of love.

In silence, I listen.
I listen in the shadow of your story...and I taste it all.
The salt of tears, and the pepper of years, in your bond of love.

In silence, I listen.
I listen in the shadow of your story...and I sense it all.
Your unconditional love in life, and your continuing bond of love, in afterlife.

In silence, I listen...and I sense it all.
