A quiet dark place can be found
Where a prayer in solitude God can hear
He loves when we talk to Him, so have no fear
This place is your secret where you can’t hear a sound.
Sometimes are words are lost on others
We should rather have a chat with God
More often than not as we travel this sod
Words are a precious thing that should be used carefully to God, your sister or brother.
However angry and foolish words
So silence and quietness of thought are key
To bring our hearts in the right place to see
Where we are clear in mind, body and spirit without a doubt.
When I keep silent and still
God can speak in a prayer of solitude
God is clear and I will listen and will not be rude
Giving over my heart and my will.
