Held and Kept

all the while she watched him
turn, erasing his love from her
and from their unborn child

monstrous things overtook and became him,
traveling all the way from deep love
to his defining call to wild

frozen and unguarded she limped away
helplessly drowning in his
faded left behind breath

splashing through her tears,
longing for a new strength or just
to be held and kept

unbeknownst to her she was, ready
to be  beautifully saved
in her own “as you are” right

her struggle and pains, brought
forth radiant trust and faith
in Him to the truest form of light
