Seen and Heard


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.

~ Laurie Pontious-Andrews


About unabashedhope

The name Unabashed Hope comes from my favorite poem by Emily Dickinson. Unabashed means not embarrassed, disconcerted or ashamed. I believe Emily's poem, Hope is the Thing with Feathers, says it best: Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul, And sings the tune without the words, And never stops at all, And sweetest in the gale is heard; And sore must be the storm That could abash the little bird That kept so many warm. I've heard it in the chilliest land And on the strangest sea; Yet, never, in extremity, It asked a crumb of me.
