Born again

         You must be born from above.
                  —John 3.7

Holy One
I am born from you
each moment.

You labor to give me life,
with life-giving pain and travail
in love.

My life emerges from you,
continues you,
delights you.

With each breath I receive life,
entering the new world,
made alive again.

Even amidst harshness or loneliness
you are birthing me in love,
always giving new life.

There is no shame, no destiny,
only this moment,
only your delight.

You hold me to your breast.
I do not live without you.
I am always coming into your arms.

I am yours.
I am free.
I am beginning.
