Feeling hopeless and alone,
She sits on the precipice.
The darkness overwhelms,
She embraces the recklessness.

The depths below her
Seem ever so inviting.
The demons in her head
Never seize their chiding.

She closes her eyes
And says her last prayer
Before she jumps
Into the pit of despair

“Please don’t”
A voice behind her speaks
She opens her eyes
And finds what she seeks

He stands there
The pain in his eyes
His arms spread wide
To embrace her cries

She falls in His arms
Enveloped in His love

His Love
That fights off her demons
His Love
That soothes her fears
His Love
That takes her as she is

In that moment of peace
He says three words
That changes her life forever
He simply says,
“You are beloved.”
