Poetry: Sheltering

By Monica C. Voskamp

 

Let me enter your shelter.

Let me bathe your arms

With my salty streams.

Let me feel the warmth

Of your pillar’s strong.

Let them be what soaks

Up the tears of my heart.

 

Let me be,

Just let me be

In your sheltering.

 

When I can’t breathe in this world

When I can’t touch the stars

When I feel too far from home,

Let me come to you and find the place

I’ve been longing for,

My sweet sheltering.

 

Let me enter your sanctuary.

Let me soak in your love.

Let me stand unashamed

With naked trusting soul.

Let me shower in your

Endearing tenderness.

 

Let me feel the presence

Of your heartbeat steady.

Let me hear the echoing

There upon your chest.

Let me feel the rhythm strong.

Let me enter this divine,

Complete peacefulness.

 

Let me be,

Just let me be

In your sheltering.

 

For when I can’t breathe in this world

And when all I see is the dark

When I’m longing to come home

When I feel too far gone,

Comfort me with your heart.

Comfort me with your arms

Be my sheltering.

 

My love, forever you will be,

My rock, my steady heartbeat

Eternal cord to my heart,

My sweet sheltering.

 

Always hope. Always believe. Always love. ❤
