This little verse of faith I wrote some years back, and am putting online again.
A cry, silent in the night,
Taken by angels heavenwards
To the ear of God on high
As if the Angels were birds…
At the ceasing of their flapping wings
They give the words to God and say,
“Here is a cry, silent, from the night,”
But God: he waves them away!
One looks to the other in wonder:
As if to ask each other how can God not care –
But reading their thoughts, the Lord said
“When the Cry was uttered: I was there! ”
