This silence is cold and deep,
It penetrates my soul in places I can't reach.
From the depths I cry out for an answer,
even just a word,
or a breath in this silence.
This is not the answer I am looking for,
silence is not the answer I want.
Perhaps it is the only answer,
An answer of silence,
An answer of waiting,
An answer of patience.
Something that causes seeking,
within the places I can't reach.
I do not doubt Your faithfulness,
the silence is just so deep.
