Her Loving Arms (poem)

Updated on May 14, 2014

Confusion rife

Streets filled with strife

Harsh pains of life

Scars of a knife

Her loving arms

Still hold me tight


A loss of job

All hopes to rob

Extents to lob

My silence mob

Yet in her arms

World is alright


Money past spent

Can’t pay life’s rent

Lasting repent


Gone are the dreams

Those youthful themes

Dried out old streams


Lost without hope

Darkness to scope

Mad mire to mope

But then her arms

Save me from plight


Mornings’ refrain

Every new strain

Saneness maintain


Bleakness in view

Warnings renew

Lies turning true


And still she’s there

Her love to share

All else laid bare

Within her arms

Glorious sight


Heartless and cold

Fates may unfold

Problems untold

To this I hold

Her loving arms

Still hold me tight

      Kim's so right! There's nothing like the love of a good woman, except maybe the love of a good man ;)

      Voted up and awesome.
