With You

I searched for so long
For a place to belong
Sometimes too much
Never enough

Stipulations and expectations
Loomed over me
Achievement and reward
Pulled me in

Never fully seen
Nor heard or understood
Security was elusive
Love was with condition

You kept after me
Calling me back home
Reminding me of a place
I would never be alone

I didn’t let myself go
Out of fear and concern
Never quite deserving
Never fully trusting

You still pursued me
Until I had nothing
And I came to you
With all my shame

You took me in
Forgave without question
Loved me unconditionally
Told me I was worth it

Lord, may I never forget
What it felt like
When I first witnessed
Your beautiful compassion

You are my safe place
The source of all I need
Truth and grace
Unending love

You give me hope
You offer me strength
That I may live
To be like you
