Can You Hear Me Cry - Poem by Faith Elizabeth Brigham

can you hear me, Lord
when i cry
sometimes, i feel like
i could die
my cross is heavy
my path dark
the wounds i carry
leave their mark

can you hear me, Lord
when i cry
i am not hard yet
by and by
i wonder if you
hear me Lord
sometimes i do
cry to you
