The child whispered, "God, speak to me"

And a meadow lark sang.

The child did not hear.

So the child yelled, "God, speak to me!"

And the thunder rolled across the sky

But the child did not listen.

The child looked around and said,

"God let me see you" and a star shone brightly

But the child did not notice

And the child shouted,

"God show me a miracle!"

And a life was born but the child did not know.

So the child cried out in despair,

"Touch me God, and let me know you are here!"

Whereupon God reached down

And touched the child.

But the child brushed the butterfly away

And walked away unknowingly.
