You Sheltered Me




You Sheltered Me

you sheltered me
when days were dark and nights black
in the abyss I couldn’t climb out of
like an oak tree you shielded me
from dreary rains of desperation

like a blood transfusion
I drew hope from your hope
and strength from your strength
you sheltered me from deep despair
and convinced me I wanted to live

when I shivered in the cold
you pulled me close into your fire
and called forth the depths of my soul
cherishing the one beneath heavy baggage
your love is the closest to God’s I’ve known
