by Kaylene Scholl 2006
When you run from me and trip, I will not be able to keep you from
But I will be there to help pick you back up.
I cannot keep you from your nightmares;
But I will sit and rock you, whispering words of love into your
When your anger screams at nothing, feet stomping in frustration;
I will try to remember to teach you a new dance.
When the crowd presses in on every side;
I will hide you under the shadow of my wings.
when you are in a new situation and your eyes freeze in fright;
I will maintain a calm face to give you a focal point.
When you cry feeling that no one cares;
I will sing over you, showing my delight in you.
When you feel dirty and rejected;
I will bathe you with the words of praise.
When you start to allow yourself to trust, no longer looking for a
way to blame me;
I will rejoice and be exceedingly glad.
I want to declare that you
are my treasure;
A gift that I cherish.
