Sometimes our prayers
Are shaped in tears
And do not make
A sound at all
But still, ah still,
Our Lord God hears
And catches each prayer
As they fall

My cousin Robb lost his wife suddenly, tragically.
Sometimes all we can say are tears!

Please pray for Robb and his family!


  1. Janet, I'm so sorry for your loss. I understand the prayers with no words, but God hears our hearts and collects our tears. Prayers for Robb, for peace and strength.


Thank you for your visit to this porch. I'd love to hear if or how this post/poem touched you!
