Those Loving Arms( Personification - Choka 5-7-7)

After all these years
We meet again in this place
Where, with you I dreamed my dreams

There - safe in your arms
As you held me through the years
Through the laughter and the tears

You and only you
Know the scars upon my soul
Know the pain this heart still holds

Now I find you here
In this old abandoned house
Alone but for memories

Rockers worn flat
Cracks upon your broken back
Arms still reaching out to me

    Sweet ... assume it is for the chair contest ... beautifully done, Elaine. Sorry for the sadness about my Christmas Child ... you are the only one who has commented on it and its been there for almost a week ... guess folks don't know what to say ... its difficult to get all cheery when they've opened another warming center here in Eugene for the homeless folks ... I need a dose of happy dust ... smile ...
