The Journey Through Grief

The journey through grief
So vast, dark, and uncertain
Where is my compass

God, are you with me
I search, eyes closed, heart open
Oh Source of comfort

I cry out in tears
A primal ache in my soul
Help me to find you

Prayer is hard for me
How do I speak to you God
Tears flow down my cheeks

They carry in them
All the words I cannot say
Hear them God, hear them…

I ask, Ayekah?
In the still quiet moments
The wind whispers back

I listen closely
Hineni, the wind calls out
Here I am, with you

The journey is long
The gentle breeze carries me
Forward with God’s grace
