Downcast, my head until 
You dressed it with a crown 
Broken my heart until 
My heavy burdens I laid down 

Confused, my mind until 
You clothed it with peace 
Estranged, my soul until 
You restored it with ease 

Fragile, my person until 
You strengthened frail 
Flimsy my stature until 
You delicately removed pale 

Bare, my hands until 
You enclosed your gifts 
Naked my shame until 
You sheltered me, it fits 

Rejected, contracted me until 
You accepted, disallowing deny 
Contradiction agreed with forge until 
You authenticated truth to fly 

Homeless, amongst the many until 
You welcomed me home 
Lonely but not alone until 
You endow habitation as my own 

Fearful, combined with dread until 
You fitted fearless confidence in me 
Worried in anxious timidity until 
You deposited tranquil, positioning me free 

Abandoned, discarded me from belonging until 
You cantered me, coroneted me in embrace 
Forsaken, left for forgotten until 
You promised me never to leave me or forsake 

Unconditional love, met me with conditions until 
You qualified absolution releasing liberty 
Restricted love controlled my being until 
You flowered me with liberation’s certainty
