I Could Only Just Imagine -Mary Pacis


Rain -Mary Pacis

Rain -Mary Pacis

April 10 2013

I never truly heard the sound of the howling winds,

The pitter patter of the rain, and the sound of Angels clapping.

I stare at each and every drop, as it lands on my window sill,

So whenever it lands, in time, I could only just imagine.

Pitter… Patter… Pitter… Patter…

Then I focus on the Lightning as it strikes on a tree,

Never did I flinch for my eyes could only see.

I raised my hands to praise my God, but no I did not sing.

Why would I do so anyways,

I could not hear a thing.

But even so, I thank the Lord for allowing trials in,

The sounds of whales and stars at night,

I could only just imagine.

I dance with the storm, I dance with the rain,

And with the striking lights.

I hear the song of praise and then I sang with all my might.

I closed my eyes and cried for joy, for even in my pain,

I had the strength to praise the Lord and to share the Light.

– Mary Pacis

I came up with this poem when I was thinking of what it would be like to be deaf, and why sometimes when I imagine hearing something, it feels like I could really really hear it. Some people, are angry at God for making them blind, deaf, etc.

In the line

“I raised my hands to praise my God, but no I did not sing.

Why would I do so anyways,

I could not hear a thing.”

the person sounded a bit wounded and hurt, why would I sing praises to God if I couldn’t hear my own voice?

I wrote this poem to show people, that God has a plan for them. That there is a reason. So why submerge yourself in anger when God  has a plan… why not rejoice instead… why not be a blessing…

James 1:2

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials,
