Loving Father

Loving Father,

all the fancy words

in the world,

expressed in eloquent prose,

decorated with emotion,

spoken with conviction,

cannot compete with a heartfelt

'sorry'

when all other words fail.

There are times

when we are all too aware

of our limitations,

conscious of sin,

and the distance it creates between us.

Sometimes 'sorry'

is all the heart can bear to say aloud.

It is only you

who can read and understand

the language of our hearts,

only you who can translate our 'sorry'

into the prayer we would have prayed,

if we had the words within us.

Then you forgive,

and having forgiven

surround us in an embrace of love,

drawing us close to your heart,

as it was always meant to be.

Thank you, Loving Father,

that you listen to hearts,

as well as voices

Thank you.
