When I Cannot Dream


When I cannot speak eloquent words of thanksgiving or petition

When my mouth and my mind are paralyzed by torrents of rain

When lofty thoughts and big dreams are completely covered under a heavy blanket of night

In these times when I cannot speak and I cannot muster even the tiniest of inward dreams

May my very breath be my prayer, may the mere beating of my heart be a calling out to You.

For I cannot manage anything more in this moment.
