#blogElul 10: Count
#blogElul 12: Forgive

#blogElul 11: Trust


That you love me
without reservation.

That nothing I feel
could alienate you.

That you don't want me
to be someone I'm not.

That if I went
to the ends of the earth

you'd be there too
holding me in your heart.

That if I fall
you would catch me.

That in your embrace
I am safe.

I'm participating again this year in #blogElul, an internet-wide carnival of themed posts aimed at waking the heart and soul before the Days of Awe. (Organized by Ima Bima.) Read #blogElul posts via the Elul tag; last year's posts are now available in print and e-book form as See Me: Elul poems.
