Silent Meditation


In the quietness of my soul,
I find you.
The peace surrounds me and
fills my spirit with your radiance.
The stillness overwhelms me,
it gives me water to drink.
I light a candle in remembrance,
in prayer for those who are lost.
Hundreds of voices awaken me –
my life comes alive in their harmony.
Be still, my busy mind.
Let God permeate and swell.
My life returns,
with this silent meditation.
