God, Speak to me!

This is a beautiful piece of writing I came across few years back and I had noted it down in my diary.
Thought I’d share this.Writer: Anonymous
The little child whispered,
‘God speak to me’
And the meadow Lark sang,
but the child didn’t hear.
So the child yelled,
‘God! Speak to me!!!’
And the thunder rolled across the sky.
But the child didn’t hear.
The child looked around and said,
‘God, I want to see you.’
And a star shone brightly
but the child did not see.
And the child shouted,
‘God show me a miracle!’
A life was born.
But the child did not know.
So the child cried out in despair,
‘Touch me God! And let me know you are there.’
Whereupon, God reached down and touched the child
but the child brushed the butterfly away and walked away unknowingly.
