Not Unseen

She holds her heart close
Rock hard tight it stays
Secure clutch, no one knows
Locked and key thrown away

She tries to speak out
Her voice doesn't matter
Even when she shouts
All that's heard is chatter

Eyes don't see or hear
Blank stares all around
Wrap tighter with fear
Soul cry the only sound

She sinks deeper down
Holds tight to despair
To breathe is to drown
Does anyone care?

There is One greater
One who is unseen
A whisper sweeter
A true rock to lean

Never forgotten
He sees and hears all
Desires and heart dreams
Hope is on the brink
