A Song Hits My Soul

Divine Revelation

In the middle of my old church,

a place I hardly recognized anymore.


A song started that hit my soul

and touched my heart.


As tears filled my eyes,

my voice barely above a whisper.


My thoughts elsewhere;

my heart completely closed off.


As my emotions took hold,

I simply mouthed the words.


Standing stoicly in silence

did not feel right.


So my lips moved in sync

with the rest of the congregation.


And there was a energy

that only happens in God's sanctuary.


My sobs stilled

and my spirit lifted.


And maybe there was hope 

for me after all.
