Hearing Well

Forgive the times initially 
I listened to your spoken words
Thinking that I understood
Yet your heart I had not heard

Intention was not to dismiss
Heavy burdens of your soul
That you could not voice yourself
Perhaps you did not fully know

Communication’s awful miss
Not hearing clearly deepest cries
Meaning lost, attention’s guess
Loneliness the lullaby

Searching life long to be heard
He who knows souls fully well
Beyond one’s words of utterance
Hears the truth hearts long to tell

Oh, LORD, in fleeting days to come
Grant us gifts of hearing well
Mend our misperception’s gaps
Heal misunderstanding’s quell

Psalms 10:17 NKJV
“Lord, You have heard the desire of the humble; You will prepare their heart; You will cause Your ear to hear,”

Ephesians 4:32
“And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.”
