In times of need in my darkest hour,
A unit, an energy, a source of power.
To realizing in this moment that I am enough,
Even when it seems impossible or tough.
Offering kindness and love to fill my gaping hole,
My ally, home, protector of my soul.
You love me when I don’t know how,
When I can’t face my fears, or focus on the now.
The path was winding it was dark and long,
I doubted my decisions, my map was wrong.
I couldn’t choose a direction, or trust which way to go,
I yearned for your guidance and knowledge to know.
You reached out your hand through the storm and rain,
made me feel safe and soothed my pain.
You are the sun through the clouds, a blanket of protection,
When I can’t give it to myself you give me affection.
You are a butterfly morning and a wildflower afternoon,
The twinkling North star, and a radiant full moon.
I know I am the commander of my own ship,
but when I’ve hit a rock you give me the tip,
To meandering the stormy seas and sailing to shore,
to leading myself to safety so I am broken no more.
A cocoon of safety where I can turn the key,
Your nurture allowed me to feel finally free.
They say it’s darkest before the dawn,
A hostile night sky before a clear blue morn.
When I’m at the bottom of the pit and there’s no way out,
you’re soothing whisper drowns those shouts.
You pass me the water that fizzles the fire,
Your detailed map leads me out of the quagmire.
Through the trenches & minefields, I’ll tell you what I’ve learned,
That out of the rabbit hole hope always returns.
I’ll steer my ship no matter how strong the storm,
Fear tried to freeze my heart but it will always be warm.
It tried to sink me to the bottom of the sea,
But no one can take me away from me.
