This Moment of Readiness

Has love been here all along
Despite the barriers I’ve kept?

As though I needed protection from something so beautiful.

The walls I built kept me contained
But also restrained.

Now I sit
Head in hands
Wondering at the thousand-year loss,
Pondering what has passed.

The protection was not from me
But for me
While I healed,
Rebuilt
To this moment of readiness
For that which has stood before me all along.
