I Heard You

I Heard You

Backed into a corner

By fears and feelings


I had no strength

My hands tied, my heart slowing


My vision dimming

My hearing gone


My voice was becoming soft

Too soft for anyone to hear


I had one last chance

I had to try


So I opened my mouth,

“Help”, not even I could hear.


Suddenly the fears ran,

The feelings disappeared


A new strength came over me

My hands free, a new heartbeat


I began to see new things

I even heard what others could not


I was silent, though a question

Screamed from my heart


The answer then came,

“I heard you”
