Inside each
heart beating
in this world,
a quiet place

Though your life
may be an
arid desert
swept into
dunes of despair,
a quiet place

Though your life
may be
tangled and overgrown
choked by the
clinging needs
of others,
a quiet place

Heavy waves
of grief may
threaten to
drown your
very soul
as you
gasp for
every breath
a quiet place

Let the soft pulse
of your heart
be the hymn that
sings you home
into that
quiet place
of spacious hope
devoted tenderness
and everlasting love
a silence sanctuary
just waiting
for you.
