May I be nothing
but what you will for me
Let my heart not swell with pride
but break & cry for those left behind –
lost & cold in dark rooms.
Do not let my feet touch the ground
unless they walk your path
May I breathe no more
unless your will in me lingers on.

For I am yours
Heart, mind & soul
My body your creation
sculptured for such a time as this
and as Child, Servant, Warrior & Helper
I will live, learn & grow
not to become accomplished
but to endure what is ahead of me
to step into darkness
And sacrifice myself in the night
so that we can begin again
Healed & Restored
Only in You.
