A Conversation

You have tested me often.
There are times I've wanted to give up.
Too many times I've asked myself Why?
I've asked You the same question.

I've never questioned why You don't answer.
I'm sure You have.
I just can't hear You.
Or perhaps I'm not listening.

I was told as a child
You would always be there.
I still believe that.
And I've noticed something ...

When the weight is too heavy,
It is lightened.
When I lose my way,
You send a light.

I may not hear You,
But I see the light.
I will follow it,
And give thanks.

That is really beautiful. I am not even going to add a joke or sarcasm to ruin it.

The light may sometimes be in the form of a human.
You are my light when I get lost...
And I give thanks for that!
I love you Mo.
