I did not ask you to come into my ten-foot wall
Uninvited you steadily worked on breaking my prison
Run I wanted to do, but your gentle love kept me here
Your protective home made me feel safe
It gave me hope when I was drowning
Cling I did to your love
Why love me? Why I wonder?
What do you see in me that I do not see?
Why do you want to love me like a daughter?
What did I do to deserve this?
Now I just need a father’s hug and love
Now I just need a mother’s hug and love
To guide me, to encourage me, to give me
The courage and strength to move away from pain
My wounds splintered around me
You tenderly tell me:
You are precious and valued
I want to believe, but I am afraid
What if a father’s love and a mother’s love
Will leave me again? Reject me again?
Shattered I will fall to the ground and weep
I do not want to feel rejection again
I want to feel safe, secure, protected and loved
I crave for a mother’s love
I crave for a father’s love
I crave to be told I belong
Do I belong in your family?
You drew me in and gathered me in your arms
Your hugs told me I was safe
And that I am home
You are loved Hannah
You are not alone anymore
We are here
With open door and open hearts for you
You are safe
You are home
