Tell me…

“Speak to me in riddles…

              Speak to me in rhymes…

                              Your words keep me alive…”

~ Sarah McLachlan ~



Tell me your story…

The one etched in your heart…

The one that makes you hope, laugh, cry…

You can trust me…

I’m always here for you…

In all ways…

Tell me your dreams…

You’re secret desires…

The ones you hide..

Tell me you feel me…

Tell me you know me…

Show me it’s true…

Not a figment of my desirous imagination…

Tell me…

Because I’m someone like you…

  1. Picking up the right words or the right place is not that imp….picking up the right moment to express is crucial !

    So drenched of humble submission and care in love


  2. I’ve never questioned the answers given
    To find the faith that’s been lost within
    ‘Cause where I lay my trust in others
    Where it lies the ground is thin
    ‘Cause I don’t know the way
    He said “I can take you there,
    I can show you places where our time has had no ware”
    And as we walked the plains
    The skies they opened wide
    Revealing all the shame for what’s been lost inside us all.
    — Sarah McLachlan

    You should know that AnElephant never forgets, and when the lovely lady wants butterflies, then AnElephant makes sure she gets butterflies.
