When you're with someone who truly loves you fear and doubt disappears


Broken pieces of/
weighted shackles/
strewn behind me/
reminders of a life/
lived in bondage,/
veiled in insecurities,/
lacking strength/
lacking truth/
lacking beauty/
Where rays of light only trickled in/
intermittently/
for a fleeting of moments/
overwhelmed by sadness/
pain/
& fear/
Then/
A voice like tranquil music spoke to my dreams/
lying dormant in the wilderness/
Sweetly/
Openly/
Honestly/
Without ulterior motives/
or Guile/
Refreshing like an oasis/
so pure/
U lifted me/
High/
above the turmoil/
above the Earth/
above the stars/
Wrapped me in ur arms/
securely/
& shared ur love so fearlessly/
that it defied my understanding/
U accept/
me/
U want/
me/
& seek to embrace/
ALL of me/
complete/
ly/
&/
I am amazed/
sometimes/
as I look deeply into your eyes/
that the chains of doubt/
would fall away so easily/
Suddenly I am/
Set free/
to love U/
courageously.................
