When I Hear You Sing
by Alden Sylvester
Age Group: Adult
When I hear you sing
"if it be your will"
wash me clean
my lonely heart
I can see
like a broken bird
sinking in the sea
I can let go
let my choking throat
hear the pain
I've held inside
not have to hide
we are all
in this together
God holds us
in Her arms
Mothers know why
we have to cry
needs to heal
and it is
to hear you sing.........
for being broken
Author's Notes: Dedicated to Antony and the Johnsons for their beautiful rendition of the Leonard Cohen song....
