Whisper in my ear the shame you fear to utter. Let go of this secret so you may begin to heal. A secret can be so heavy for such small sweet girls like you, give it to me and I will know what to do… I want you to remember what it is like to be four and six. I want you to forget what has been done to you. I know you prayed that God would rescue you, I know you prayed your mother would save you, I know you prayed that I would see what was happening. I know you feel that God didn’t save you as those moments floated on by, But He did sent me so that you could whisper in my ear all the fear and shame that you feel, cling to me and have no fear as I pray Oh silent heart shout the pain out of my soul. Let the tears of sorrow flow like rivers from heaven. Oh silent heart let there be peace inside of me, let there be love instead of hate, Oh silent heart release the hate that lives in me and let me once again BELIEVE!
