I welcome you.
Come here for a while
And sit by my side
I will hold you
And fix you up
I'll bring you a cup
Of your favorite warm broth
And together we will cry.
Together we will gather up the shards
Of our shattered hearts
And hold eachother close
To match up the pieces
In a simple song;
Together we will remember
The rejection like needles
Together we'll recall
Each pain-soaked risk
Taken and failed,
Fallen to the ground
Like crumbled paper
Just know, dear,
I accept you
And here you may stay
As long as you need
Pour out your contents
And let me shiver and crumble and weep into you

It's just been so long
And I'm tired of running from you.


  1. This is my favorite. I felt connected to you! I felt the longing. This is a poem I will remember for a long time.

  2. Love this!! By the way, do you know many guys who are hopeless romantics? Becaue I'm pretty sure I am one too! I love that the Lord is using you and your sisters in such an amazing way!! Hope to meet you all sometime soon. Keep it up!! Go Jesus!!

  3. I know a lot of the times I don't spend enough time in silence just listening to God. I really should because God knows all of our problems and he cares more than any person could even care. Your writing really is powerful and a great reminder that God is better than anyone else. Thanks for the great reminder Katherine!

  4. Thanks Kath for writing such inspiring poems like this one! I really look up to you and your sisters a lot! You are a very inspiring role model that I want to follow for the rest of my life! Keep the good job you're doing so far and keep writing good poems like this one and all the others you've posted so far. God bless you and your family. THANK YOU KATH

  5. Beautiful! <3

    I love this part. I'm not exactly sure why, but it definitely has to do with how you personified loneliness. Just remember:

    And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
    Matthew 28: 20
