Your Kindness Is A Sanctuary

Your Kindness Is A Sanctuary

your kindness
is a sanctuary 
for my weary soul

your deep, 
silent listening
opens a vast, 
infinite space

where all my
cut-off, orphaned bits
walk out in utter relief

no longer crippled
by the burdensome
shame and horror
they have suffered
of themselves

like exhausted children 
allowed to emerge 
from a cold 
hungry darkness
where for a thousand years
they had been 
punishingly confined

their tiny hands 
now caressed
foreheads kissed
and soft little bodies
wholly embraced

with these words 
that finally heal
and set them free: 

there is no need 
for reasons
or any explanation

you’re accepted 
as you are

this is how it is

hush, my dear
it’s alright

my dear,
it’s all okay
