For You (Sarah)


Outstretched and broken.
Opened up.
Exposing my heart.

Search me.
You will find even the ugly.

I’m mended with bits of tape and string.
Each day hoping to get better;
All for you.

Have made me wholly aware,
Of my want to be better.

Better than what I was given.
Better than what I was promised.

I want to wrap you up in arms
Worthy of you;
And I know I’ll never be worthy.
But let me try.

Let me slip, trip, and fall
Scrambling to your feet.
Beat up and bruised
To give you

Every part of me
Needs every part of you.

Love your love is light
Piercing through my hard dark;
Lighting the way
To holy.

Wholly given.
Wholly yours.

And I love you for that.
