Losing my religion

Did I lose you in the chaos?
Love retreating
Extinguished by the noise.

Did I lose you in the cleaning?
Joy worn down
Scrubbed barren under dirt.
 
Did I lose you at the mealtimes?
Grace uneaten
Sitting cold on untouched plates.

Did I lose you in the silence?
Faith forgotten
Pushed aside with cast off toys.

Did I lose you now, forever?
Hope the seedling
Sleeping dark in drought-touched earth.
