I came into this world,
With fists held tight,
And a fear that could not escape my wide eyes.
While You entered with bright eyes,
And a confidence I could never conceive,
As I was already too cynical to believe.
I built safe, secure, sturdy walls,
Around my heart and head,
Protecting all that could disturb the harmonious function,
Of my pre-conditioned dread.
Though they were built on choice,
My heart and head suffered the beatings,
From a fearful voice.
Who only told me to run and hide,
When someone got close inside.
But for once I looked twice,
And I knew,
You weren’t the one to run away from,
Instead you were the one to run to.
Despite all of my apprehensive tendencies,
And my nervous bouts.
You took me in without a thought,
And gave me all the love I needed,
Removing all my sense of fear and doubt.
There is no one else,
I would hand over all my fears to,
As there is only one You.
Where without You,
My foundations are weak,
And my plans tend to always fall through.
You demolished what’s left of my walls,
And You pulled me out of the wreckage.
Helping me still,
Despite my imperfections.
You’ve reached inside,
And kickstarted my heart once again.
Reminding me what love should feel like,
With all Your warmth and light.
While giving me the strength,
To believe that love is deserved,
And why I should feel free to love a little more,
As a little more won’t hurt.
