You are breath of my breath.
For it was out of my breath that I created you.
I created you for myself.
I am your home, and you are mine.
You are home when you are with me because I am your home.
I have called you to myself and I will not let you go.
Do not long for the way things used to be,
Every step along this path brings you closer to me.
You are where you belong.
This path is your path.
It’s where you were meant to be.
It’s where we were destined to find each other.
Born into this world you were once lost to me,
But I called you out of the darkness.
It was meant to be.
And now that I have you again I will not let you go.
You can’t go back.
This is who you are, who you were always meant to be.
Breath of my breath.
Life of my life.
Love of my love.
Beloved, do not tarry long before taking the next steps,
For I long to draw closer to you.
Draw near to me.
My people will live in peaceful dwelling places,
in secure homes,
in undisturbed places of rest.
