Safe

I am not afraid.

I will run headlong
Into the arms of love,
With all the abandon
Of a beloved child
Who reaches for mother,
Or races to father,
Arms outstretched, expectant.

Safe in love’s embrace,
I will be like a child, but more.

Knowing the pain of loss,
No longer burdened with the fear of it,
I will love you like a sun.
Joy will stream
From the ends of my hair,
Warmth will beam
From my fingertips,
Comfort will radiate
From my arms.
And we will never be alone again.
