Song of Silence

I drive a noisy car,
Its even noisy on the highway,
Its funny how noise becomes silence
When I’m thinking my way.

I’m in a room full of people,
And everybody’s talking,
Its funny how noise becomes silence
When an idea comes knocking.

As I lullaby this baby
Into the arms of the night,
Its funny how noise becomes silence
If the song is just right.

But when I stand up in the silence
And enter into prayer,
All my silent self-absorption
Makes a noise I cannot bear.

I have to remember well my Lord,
And forget myself some more
That all the silence become silence.
