You Guide Me

By Tony DeLorger © 2012


You guide me through my minefield mind,

sweet-talking my resistance into action,

leading me into my own truth and lost ideals,

and surrounding me with loving arms.

I see so easily beyond the hills, into the void of possibility,

but within my own shell I am blind,

at the mercy of fear and self-doubt.

You loosen the stones that surround me,

crumble away the doubts that hold me to rest,

and dissipate the haze that reveals the distant blue of endless sky.

That first step often eludes me,

overwhelmed by pain and change,

yet you soothe my misgivings into a serene consideration,

an adaptation I could not have made alone.

This love you give is pure and selfless,

given direction by insight I lack in visions of myself,

and the lost parts of me that now begin to rise,

hidden in shadow from the hurt of past,

and the fear of failure.

I love you for what you are,

for what you do and see beyond yourself.

I love your strength amid adversity

and your will for all that’s right,

regardless of the opposition.

I am grateful for your place in my life,

learning, guiding and experiencing life together,

for I have been alone for time endless.

I surrender to my destiny, now unafraid,

for you are by my side, and my heart is full.
