Whispers of Your Soul

My sons, sometimes, have lost their way And ask for help in re-establishing their goals I tell them, “I cannot set you straight You should listen to the whispers of your soul” My daughter, sometimes, suffers heartbreak And cries on my shoulder hoping I can console I tell her, “I have no words to ease your pain You should listen to the whispers of your soul” My friends, sometimes, question their faith Having a hard time believing what they’ve been told I tell them, “Answers don’t come from someone else You should listen to the whispers of your soul” My wife, sometimes, fears the end Lamenting the fact that we’ve grown so old I tell her, “I have no wisdom about what comes next You should listen to the whispers of your soul” My soul has often whispered to me That the best advice I could ever give Is after being there to hear them out Tell them their soul knows how they should live
