Wrap me up in the very essence of your being. Yes be my cloak of warmth and protection in which I feel inclined to be safe in this deep dark world. Tell me without telling me how you will protect me in the darkest of hours when I feel no one and nothing else can keep me sheltered. Yes, speak to me through volumes of action which require no verbal interaction because I'm immersed in your convictions. Make me believe I'm safe, I'm okay, I'm protected and I'm free. Wrap me up in every way possible. Mental...physical...emotional. Let it be a known fact to me that I am covered. Let it be so obvious that I could stand in front of a crowd and express it with no hesitations, breaks or pauses, nor reservations because I'm sure that you're sure that I'm okay to feel okay. And that's okay, because I'd feel good and I'd feel the upmost level of reassurance. So that everyday if any day I wake up feeling like I'm not strong I'll know that you're my strength. And when I looked around at what goes on in this cruel world and I don't feel safe, I'll look to you for my protection. And when my back is against the wall and everything is against me including the chilling winds of disappointment, I'll wait on you to cover me in your warmth and absorb every worry that I may ever feel. My strength, my protection and my warmth. In you, I'll find it all.
