You Held Me

at my lowest

most vulnerable

ugliest moment

you picked me up

 

when I was naked

shaking with terror

wrapped with shame

you held me close

 

when all others would have abandoned me in that pit of jagged rocks

you carried me out

you kept my burdens as your own

 

my soul can dance

with incandescent freedom

unshackled

at my lowest

most vulnerable

ugliest moment

you picked me up
