Til I find the heart

I listen to the rain and it sings
A song for the broken
The prayers unspoken
A song for the hopeless
The wounded and ashamed
Who will never find their way

I listen to the train going through
It rumbles along with a rhythm
That tells the truth
It is the heart beating
It is the soul retreating
The sound is soft and loud
All at the same time

I am awakened by the sound
Ever moved by a heart
Longing to hear the pulse
Of the womb
Where my life had begun

I don't cry
I just don't know inside
If there will ever be a day

When I see her face
I save room in my soul
For when I know
I was loved
Held close to the heart
Of the one who gave me
The life I have
