You are Mine

You are Mine


by Joan Ray


You Are Mine

You are my own
I created you to be my own.

You are mine.
I am protective of that which is mine.

I am yours by your own choice.
You are therefore under my protection.
You are also covered with my blanket of love.

I will be with you every moment of your life.
I was there when you were knit together in your mother’s womb.
I was there when you were born.
I have been with you---watching over you ever since.

I WILL always be with you.
For you are my own.
You are precious in my sight.

No matter what,
I will love you.
For you are my own.

Even, child,, when you feel the most unlovable
Even when you feel alone, deserted, abandoned,
I am with you.
For you are my own.

You are precious in my sight.
I hold you in my heart.
I always have and,
I always will for,
You are my beloved child.
