I Stand Speaking
By Patti Brown (2003)

I stand speaking to the wind
telling the wind all that is
on my mind and in my heart

Yet I cannot find the words
to tell you, my love
Fear strips me of language

My soul is too hurt and I am afraid
I pray to God, one day my faith
will be restored
And my heart and mind
will be free

These chains of bondage
and walls of fear will
So I may love once more

Has he sent you, my Angel
to make this happen
Perhaps these wondrous feelings
stirring inside are a sign
that it's time

Come, bring me to life
fill me with happiness
teach me to love again.
