Welcome Home, Delight
I carefully make my way to the edge, there I find her.
She is timid at first, not knowing if she can trust my approach.
You see, I have been a stranger,
Lacking the courage to pursue.
I am afraid of what she will require of me.
I approach slowly, bow low. I open my hands in humble gratitude.
Oh, Delight, how I have missed you! Old friend, lover, and confidant.
I threw you away, pushed away your sacred touch; cheaply discarded your beauty.
Delight, I am so sorry. I deeply regret how I have feared you.
I could not see you clearly through my self-hatred and shame.
I surrender these selfish defenses, I lay down my self-serving protections, and I choose you;
I choose me.
I choose to delight in my goodness and glory.
I choose to rest in my beauty, to own my smile.
Delight, you are now home.
