Learning to accept your love for me
Has required a leap of faith.
I cannot see why I am precious to you.
As a mother guards her child.
I was a thankless brat.
And held me in your arms.
So I came to feel I was in your debt
And wanted to repay you.
To give myself to you completely.
So you allowed me to walk away.
But immediately miseries crept into me
And I withered inside.
You flood my body with waves of joy.
Your love is better than anything I ever wanted.
Your words, soft and earnest, give wisdom.
My heart swells with tenderness.

All I want to do is thank you—thank you.
