Listen

Soul's Whisper by Ella's Edge

Listen
like a sentinel in the woods
still as a deer
calm and gentle
as I whisper in your ear
words of comfort and peace
how to act in your life.
Don't dart away in fear
have faith in me and listen
lean on me in strife
I'm whispering in your ear.

Lovely, soothing whispers. I like the subtle rhyming pattern (almost an accidental feel to it - that happens sometimes in my writing).

Laurie, we are singing "Lean On Me" in a couple of weeks with our praise band. It's the essence of this poem for me, interdependency, each having a turn at strength or vulnerability. Lovely write. Amy

This is what might be hoped for as the answer to a prayer.
