I would take no for an answer
Just to know I heard You speak
And I’m wondering why I’ve never
Seen the signs they claim they see
A lot of special revelations
Meant for everybody but me
Maybe I don’t truly know You
Maybe I just simply believe . . .
Apparently Mother Teresa went through a very long dark night of the soul and never really ‘experienced’ the presence of the divine. And the poem above is for all of us who wait for the divine to grace us with its touch.
