30 DAYS OF JAYE: Safe Harbor

You gave me who I am

Let me be who I can become.

In you, with you

I have no regret

Through my endless night

You gave me hope of morning

Soothing the mourning

I no longer have reason to cry

No shame, no hiding

Breathing deep

Becoming comfortable within all of me

Showing you what was always and already there

Closing my eyes removed from the world

Knowing and happy in

When I roll and wake,

You will reach for me,

As I reach for you,

And you will still be there.
