When fear creeps in, clinging,

I hear a voice say, “Open.”

When I leave, by well-worn mental paths,

the time, the place, the space I’m in,

I hear a voice say, “Return.”

When I watch the boys on bikes

chasing round and round the van

in the driveway, when I see my daughter

smile secretly at the dog in the yard,

I hear a voice say, “This is good.”

When tears rise at the mere thought

of an act, when my heart somersaults

in my chest and the muscles of my legs

clench tight, I hear a voice say, “Pay attention.”

This is the voice of knowing,

the voice that leans whispering

Truth.  “This is light.  This is darkness,”

the voice says, “It matters not where

you are, for I am with you, always.
