i am your poem.
i have a rhyming heart and soul,
covered in your handwriting.

i am your poem.
all my bones
are shaped by your words.

i am your poem.
You have written
beauty and wonder on my skin.

i am your poem.
verses of freedom and redemption
are written in my heart.

i am your poem.
i am your song, your creation,
a fearfully and wonderfully made masterpiece.

i am your poem.
i am a glorious reflection
of your graceful heart.

i am your poem.
You are writing
dreams and beauty in me.

i am your poem,
and i know You are not done
writing me.
