“Home” – a poem



In your arms I am home,


all concerns escape my mind.

The warmth of your body calms me,

the light in your eyes a balm for any fears.


In your arms I am free,

I don’t have to play any roles as I do at other times during the day,





Instead I am me,

only me,

and that appears to be all you need.


In your arms I’ve found my solace,

my comfort from all worries,

a place to retreat to when the world gets too hard.

Your heart is the place I rest,


and it strengthens me for the next challenge I face.

In your arms I know what home means,

what love means.

You’ve taught me so much,

how to love deeply,

without limits,

how to take risks on the important things.

I can do anything.


You’ve even taught me that the simplest things can make you happy.


In your arms I’ve found the one place I belong,

even with my oddities you still seem to get me and ask for nothing in return.

But I get you too,

and I’d have it no other way.

In your arms I am at peace,

our quiet breaths calm me,


the heat of your touch surrounds me,

our heartbeats in unison a panacea to all ills.

In your arms I want to be nowhere else.


This is the heart I belong to,

the lips I was born to kiss,


the arms I was made to stand within.

This love is infinite,

lasting lifetimes.

At the same time, it’s simple and there’s only one way to describe our connection.

Call it fate,

even call it serendipity that we stumbled across each other years ago.


And yet, it’s more…

In your arms I am,

and will always be,


forever yours,


ever at peace,

infinitely belonging,

and most of all…

In your arms I am,

at last,
