The man whispered, ‘God, speak to me’
And a meadow lark sang.
The man did not hear.

So the man yelled, ‘God, speak to me!’
And the thunder rolled across the sky
But the man did not listen.

The man looked around and said,
‘God let me see you’ and a star shone brightly
But the man did not notice.

And the man shouted,
‘God show me a miracle!’
And a life was born but the man did not know.

So the man cried out in despair,
‘Touch me God, and let me know you are here!’
Whereupon God reached down
And touched the man.

But the man brushed the butterfly away
And walked away unknowingly.”
