Set Me Free_ Poem

When you come close to me


I feel so wonderfully free


When you touch my face


I am swept back to another time, another place


Everything else disappears


You and I are the only ones here


Skin to skin, heart to heart


You mend the pieces that are falling apart


When I look deep into your eyes


I can see happiness for the rest of my life


In your arms I feel safe, never scared


You melt away every ounce of fear


Your heart speaks to mine


In a voice that leaves no doubt in my mind


That I am exactly where I need to be


Your spirit has set my soul free

So great to see you on HP. It is really strange, as I was on google earth,

yesterday, and it hovered over east TN. Naturally, I wondered how you

were doing and I looked at notifications this morning, and there you were.

What a lovely poem! I particularly like the last two lines.

If we realize that we are 'exactly where we need to be', then we are living in truth. Your words of love and freedom coming together in the same poem are beautifully expressed.

Great job, Lisa!

DJ.
