A longing for your arms

This is a song lyric that follows on thematically from my last poem. It’s kind of in answer to your question Craig. :o)

a longing for your arms

layers of silence one after another
peeling the onion – waiting for you
in the stillness of reverie there is only surrender
I open my fist to let you come through

how many times can I come to this water
ask the same question – feel the same pain
and how many times can I come to surrender
and ask that the water will take me again

it’s an old returning – the lesson still to be learned
and in the ache of separation a longing for your arms
a longing for your arms

no other lover could be so familiar
no other lover
could touch me like you
until that moment of total surrender
no other lover will do but you

it’s an old returning – the lesson still to be learned
and in the ache of separation
a longing for your arms
a longing for your arms
a longing for your arms

A longing for your arms
