When I thought all was lost,
and abuse has paid its cost.
There you were.
The calm in my storm.
Just the one I’ve been waiting for.
In your presence
frozen tears are warmed a bit
Finally I found someone to trust.
I feel cradled in the comfort you shared,
and pain is eased for a moment.
You listened in a way that no one could
You cared more than others would.
My inner child cries tears of joy.
For you rescued me and saved my life.
You taught me that to live is my right.
Your understanding and compassion,
have brought to me a sense of pride,
Your unique sensitivity,
has allowed me to be me!
