Close your eyes.

Listen with your heart and soul.

Clear your mind.

Listen closely.

You will hear

Everything you need to know.

I hear the sound of the clock, ticking;

Outside I hear leaves rustling

As the wind comes up.

Far away, I hear

The sound of a car starting up.

A dog barks.

Another responds.

Listen closely.

Listen carefully.

All you need to know

Will co me to you

if you

Listen. Closely.

Give thanks

That you can hear.

Not everyone can.
