Then the ones who pleased the Lord will ask, "When did we give you something to eat or drink? When did we welcome you as a stranger or give you clothes to wear or visit you while you were sick or in jail?"
The King will answer, "Whenever you did it for any of my people, no matter how unimportant they seemed, you did it for me." .......Matthew 25

a new moon
silent over tree tops
dry winds blowing
through my heart

i am afraid

above the silence
of the deep night
the crickets chant
their mantras

i hear
the sound of city
rolling like thunder
and i am afraid
for my children

children sleep
at peace
for the moment
they do not understand
my heart 's pain
losing little phi-phi to the river
last year

sister chea weeps
quietly inside
nothing written
on her face
i know
for her eyes speak
the hidden pain
losing a child

we share tears
in the silence
where no one hears
our heartbreak

and i am afraid
