The day is long, the headaches many; I look for peace, but can’t find any. Amid relentless rush and noise, life seems devoid of all its joys. I long for comfort, someone kind, whose love might ease my troubled mind; But in this world of constant hurry, each person has his own deep worry.
There is a place where I can go, someone to hear my tale of woe; One who always has the time to share the load, to ease the mind! I open the door and go inside, where peace and quiet still abide. Trading softly down the aisle, I greet Him with a tired smile.
“How good it feels to be with you! Please help me, tell me what to do!” At first, this is my fervent plea; but silence soon descends on me. It stills my heart, the turmoil ends- no words are needed between two friends, At peace with Him, and He with me, I know I’m where I ought to be .
With Him I’m sure to find the way to cope with living day by day.And when I leave, our visit through, he’ll say, “I’m always her for you.” I know that next week I’ll return, to talk and listen, to think and learn; To find life’s meaning and true reward before our Eucharistic Lord.
