Seen and Heard
You hear every cry I utter,
No matter how faint.
You understand every exhale of breath,
No matter how low.
You are touched by all of my hurts,
Even those created by my own hand.
You care for me in ways,
No one else ever has.
You are the Father I never had.
You have always watched over me.
I have never been beyond your reach.
For this, and so much more, I love You.
