The Search

Dear God,

How am I to trust you?

That you are there When you stay miles away?

My thoughts fill with endless chatters And my heart trembles all day Within myself I search for you With some affirmation too.

I feel like talking to you Calling out for an answer But I hear nothing Except for my own voice.

I know you are there Because people tell me so But during late nights I wonder, I am not right.

Where do you go?

Without answering me Sometimes, I feel lonely Come appear before me, I plead.
