MY GIFT TO CHERISH

by Kaylene Scholl 2006

 

When you run from me and trip, I will not be able to keep you from falling;

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 ear.

 

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.
