God, Can You Hear Me?

I try to talk to you
But it's like you're not there
My words fade away
Into empty air

Can you hear me?
Can my prayer reach that far?
Do you hear one child's cry
Wherever you are?
I'm just one small voice
In a world of pain
And I'm not sure
So I'll ask again
Can you hear me?

I try to hear your voice
But you seem so far away
I know you're calling me
But I don't know what you're saying
I can't hear you

I can't hear you
I'm drowning in my sin
I try to reach for you
But I'm falling down again
One still, small voice
In a world of pain
If I try hard enough
I know I can
I can hear you

Rolling like thunder
In my once dead heart
I can hear you speaking
We were never apart
I can hear you

Because in the end when you loose somebody every candle, every prayer's not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is a hole in your life that the person you cared about used to be.

I could almost hear the music to this. This is so beautiful . . . I feel this way sometimes, too.

Some people dream of success...while others wake up and work at it!

This is really great. Way to keep the faith in God. I actually feel this way sometimes. But I know He's there, and He is listening to me.

"And when I'm gone, just carry on, don't mourn
Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice
Just know that I'm looking down on you smiling
And I didn't feel a thing, So baby don't feel my pain
Just smile back"-Eminem

Absolutely beautiful.  'nuff said.
