** Hello, my dearest and shiniest of friends…
This post was supposed to be for Romantic Monday, but I finished it early and couldn’t wait until then to publish. I’m impatient sometimes. Please be sure to get your own Romantic Monday posts ready, visit Mr. Silly Person’s Blog, and link up!
And without further ADO, I give you…
MY LOVER’S ARMS
My lover’s arms are long and lanky,
Which makes them perfect for
A bouncy girl with ADHD
Who wants to run away into herself.
My lover’s arms are mighty
When he uses them to
A woman so emotional
And ready for an epic battle.
My lover’s arms are sexy
As they present me with flowers
His bride with unexpected joy
Just because he felt like it.
My lover’s arms are unyielding
In the middle of the night
My familiar and pleasing body
Leaving me breathless.
My lover’s arms are gentle
As he picks up his baby girl
Her in circles while giggling
And being her first love.
My lover’s arms are protective
As he wraps them around my shoulders
His beloved from the darkness
She allows to enter into her mind.
My lover’s arms are patient
While they rest upon his son
His boy of his unfailing love for him
Even when that boy is not perfect.
My lover’s arms are an alliance
Born on an October wedding day
A wayward ship lost at sea
To a harbor deep within his soul.
My lover’s arms are steadfast
Living with this fickle heart
A meandering and invasive vine
Into a landscape of contentment.
My lover’s arms are contemplative
As his hands are folded on his lap
For guidance over every step
And for help to be more than he already is.
My lover’s arms are weak
When for the first time they
His firstborn baby boy
Who was instead a very pink baby GIRL.
My lover’s arms are compassionate
An example of chivalry and humbleness
Those who are less fortunate than he
Bringing hope where there once was none.
My lover’s arms are mine
To have and to hold
This unpredictable tornado
With a hurricane of calm.
