They Don't Have Ears
 

How do you tell
           a hand that's always letting go
           you still want it to reach out to you?

How do you tell
           arms that push away
           you still want them to hold you close?

How do you tell
           feet that keep wandering off
           you still want them to walk with?

You can't, of course
           they don't have ears,
And everyone knows
           only ears can hear.

How do you tell
           eyes that don't see what they used to
           you're still worth a second glance?

How do you tell
           thoughts that forget to include you
           you still want a place in their parade?

How do you tell
           lips that no more long to kiss
           it's still all you want to do?

You can't, of course
           they don't have ears,
And everyone knows
           only ears can hear.

But what about those
           that just don't listen so well,
And maybe never really did,
           how do you tell them?

"Seek Me first,"
           He whispers well,
And all these too
           Will be added to you."
 

Isaiah 59:1; Matthew 6:33
