I have come,

To drag you out of yourself,

And take you in my heart.

I have come,

To bring out the beauty

You never knew you had

And lift you like a prayer,

To the sky.


– Rumi


I have waited for this moment

I have feared it

I am ready yet I hold tight to everything I know

Take me into your heart

Silence the fearful cries that blind and separate me from you

I long to touch the clouds

The moon and stars

And most of all I long to love and be loved by you

Your prayer has always been my prayer

The prayer I would not allow has touched my lips

I was afraid it would consume me

No longer afraid

My heart is open

My heart is free
