Our Prayers Break on God


by Luci Shaw

Our prayers break on God like waves,


and he an endless shore,


and when the seas evaporate
and oceans are no more


and cries are carried in the wind


God hears and answers every sound


as he has done before.

Our troubles eat at God like nails.


He feels the gnawing pain


on souls and bodies.

He never fails


but reassures he’ll heal again

,
again, again, again and yet again.
