I love you, My Child

I love you, my child
There is nothing that you can do
that can separate me away from you
You are here always,
within my strong and loving embrace
You are protected
You are loved.
I delight in you,
and see my own eyes upon your eyes
I take away your fears
I take away your tears
from now on you are safe
and you are where you’ve always longed to be.
Let the people who judged you
see how I cherish you now,
Let those who condemn you
see how close you are to me.
You are never outside of my love,
never an outcast
never a failure
never so far away
You need not do anything
to please me,
for I am already pleased
that you trust me
to guide you in everything
you wanted to do
You are beautiful
you are whole
you are healed
you are my beloved
you can rest upon my strong shoulders,
and trust that you won’t ever slip away,
For it is I
who is holding on firmly to you.
