Arms Around Me

a poem by thenorm

 

the starstruck sway

of the moonlight

is upon us

and the dawn

just moments away.

 

i say to you

 

put your ever-lovin'

arms around me,

hold me close

like there's no

tomorrow

and bring softly to

me your sweet lips

and press them

gently

against mine.

 

the palm trees groan

as i watch you

grace the room

 

the beauty i see

astounds me

the love we share

surrounds me

and the mystery

of it all

simply confounds me

 

so i say to you

 

put your ever-lovin' arms

around me

hold me close

bring me into you

and never let me go

your loving care

your warm embrace

your heart

your home

is where i long to be

 

and as the morning calls

and i must take my leave

this one last time

before i return

to where i'm meant to be

 

my eyes cry out

my heart is heavy

and my soul even though

it knows i will return

for good

it doesn't trust the peace

 

and i cannot say the words

they are stricken from my lips

 

so you arise from your chair

upon the porch,

our place of wonder

 

and you

you put your ever-lovin' arms

around me

and held me close

and brought me into you

and let me feel your love

your warmth

your passion

compassion

and joy.

 

you put your ever-lovin' arms

around me

and i feel them now.
