Shelter

You provided shelter for me during the storm,
Even when my pride wouldn’t allow it.

You guided me secretly,
Gently swept me off my feet.

Softly whispered into my ears,
Especially when I closed my eyes in defeat.

You promised that I’d survive,
And strive again.

Now that some time has passed,
I appreciate everything you’ve done.
And I see it more clearly now.

I’m forever grateful for that shelter,
And the way it provided another kind of happiness,
That I’ve never encountered before.
