You Saved The Day

Today again I needed help

But was afraid to turn to you

Same old story of pain and sadness

Chilled me to the bone

Why should I burden you

With what I can’t control

I fought the day all by myself

As I so often do

Closing off all contact

And let my problems stew

Then when I felt I wasn’t a threat

I finally reached out to you

Your words fit like a warm embrace

They left me with new hope

I never should have doubted you

You really lift me up

Now once again I feel my dreams

Might one day have a chance

Love’s Embrace

he whispered her name
she shivered in response
he softly touched her cheek
she let out a sigh
he kissed her lips
she kissed him back
he embraced her body
she took a deep breath
he moved his hand down her back
she let out a moan
…it was a personal moment
shared with each other
loves embrace on a rainy day
