Just To Be Held

Just to be held

That's all I ask

To be in your arms

Not a complex task

To be Home

In your arms, your eyes

Safe and protected

From the world of Hate and lies

Your shoulders broad

Your arms of strength

The synchronizing of heartbeats

Happiness in short length

Just to be held

My breath skips, my heart catches

Heat crawling along my skin

I'm on fire like lit matches

To be wrapped in your arms

The world would melt away

No pain or sadness

I could bare each day

If only you'd hold me

I'd forget about the rest

You might just fill this void

That beats in my chest

Just to be held

To be wanted

Be needed

Loved…
