Wordless Wish


Does God hear my wishes as prayers?
I breathe a little sigh
         wish a wish without words
               barely aware of a passing desire
                     and wonder if something may be, or could be…
then it vanishes like the flame on a birthday candle
blown out, fading, the wordless wish is nearly forgotten.

Yet, God heard a prayer
He felt the weight of that sigh
          captured a tear in His bottle,
                  and the wordless wish
He wrote in His book.

Then He answered..
       He fulfilled the unspoken,
              made a silent wish come true.


“He fulfills the desire of those who fear him; he also hears their cry and saves them.” Psalm 145:19
