    She's trying so hard to see the writing on the wall
    Always looking for something that's never there at all
    The only writing she reads is another page in her book of life
    Cataloguing another day and another strife

    And she starts to cry...
    "Oh Lord, can You hear my prayers and see my tears fall down?
    I'm listening so hard, but I can't hear You make a sound."
    Looking up at the stained glass windows, her eyes meet His face
    "Why do I feel so lost even when I'm in this place?"

    She sits and begins to think about the life she's lived
    Still so young, but all of her problems have grown so big
    The relationship she once had now seems vague and nondescript
    She had never thought it'd be like this

    And she starts to cry...
    "Oh Lord, can You hear my prayers and see my tears fall down?
    I'm listening so hard, but I can't hear You make a sound."
    Looking up at the stained glass windows, her eyes meet His face
    "Why do I feel so lost even when I'm in this place?"

    She gets up, collects her things, and walks down the stairs
    The battle in her heart leaves her feeling so unprepared
    She stops and whispers one last prayer before she says goodbye
    "Help me remember that You are always by my side."

    "Oh Lord, can You hear my prayers and see my tears fall down?
    I'm listening so hard, but I can't hear You make a sound.
    But just because I can't hear You doesn't mean You don't care
    Help me to remember You promised always to be there."
     
  2. That's a beauiful prayer/plea

    I know how far away God can seem, however we perceive the divine...
