the sound of lonely
no mail delivered…words never read,
door bell silent…phone not ringing,
no one calling…no one caring,
the sound of silence…the sound of lonely.
Imagine, for a moment, the loneliness described by the lines above. It is hard to believe that someone in today’s society could be that cut off…that lonely. It is hard to accept that lonliness of this depth could exist.
Could it be that this loneliness is closer than anyone might realize. Could it be that this loneliness can be found within the shadows of the church steeples…within the shadows of one’s own heart. Could it be?
“And they’ll know we are Christians by our love, by our love…”
“By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.”
