    The sun rises into the morning sky,
    whispers are echoed across the land
    “Are you real, if so please speak to me”
    The hummingbird sings you a sweet melody,
    while you look for something far greater,
    not noticing the messenger sitting in the tree.

    Clouds begin to cover the sky,
    raindrops forming puddles beneath your face
    as you demand him again to please speak to you,
    to please show you a sign.
    The clouds open and you never notice,
    the words that seem to come from the
    thunder as it rolls across the sky.

    The world seems so dark, blinded by self-pity
    you ask him to show himself
    and to teach you what to do.
    Eyes still close, head hanging toward the ground
    as your unable to see the
    moon given you direction while shining down on you.

    Rocks continuously falling onto your soul,
    feeling no reason to live, you
    request a miracle from him, a sign that he even exists.
    Down in your sorrow, unable to recognize that the
    newborn child that bares your name was
    sent to you as a gift.

    Feeling no identity, looking over the bridge
    into a stream with no reflection
    pleading to him to touch you,
    to show you he really cares.
    Mind unfocused, unable to feel the hand
    on your shoulder, as you brush
    away the butterfly that sits there.

    And you walked away unknowingly.
