One Word - Walls

I’ve put them up brick by brick, in neat and sloppy rows. Laid in leisure, laid in pain, elevated by years of hurry and thinking I’m less than, wondering if I’m so different that I’m not worthy of love.

You pull them down with your honesty, your tenacity, your bravery, your willingness to see and know me as I am. You pull them down when you stay.

Star off in the distance, shining just for me,

Bewilderment, yet wonder, is all I'm meant to see.


"Accept my light with gladness, and beside you I will stand;

I whisper in the space between, not always at your command.

I'll guide you and protect you, as I have from the start;

I'll never leave you, dear one, for I live inside your heart."
