Safe Haven

Poetry

“In your arms, I felt your strength.
You were my safe haven.”

In the dark, I feel the ghost of you. The light of your smile warming me from within. The way only you could make me laugh. The tender moments, when we just held each other. Our arms, a safe haven between us, through our strength. Through our comforting embraces. Oh how I miss those moments together. When time both stood still and sped through the night. But as dawn breaks, the memories fade away, like fog on the wind. And I’m left, cold and alone. Missing you.

If only I can find
my way back to dreams
where you are still with me.
