We sit in silence.
I say nothing;
he looks at the TV
while I stroke the cat.
The couch is small,
but miles separate us.

A stranger in my home.
I rub my arm,
desperately needing
to feel touch.
Please can't You heal
this pain, his heart,
my contempt, his indifference?

 
Give me the courage
to break down the barriers,
learn the truth,
repair the damage,
to rebuild.

I lift up this relationship
to You to bless.
Give me discernment and strength
to separate myself from the past.
I release this burden to You,
the architect of my future.
