In Their Arms

By: Jennifer Catherine Navarra

Have you ever been in love with someone
that makes your heart skip a beat every time you see them?
They are the one who brightens your day
when you think the world has turned against you.

They are the sunshine on your rainy days
and the blanket to keep you warm on those cold winter days.
All you want is to be in their arms, them holding you tight,
fearing the moment they let you go because it might be forever.

When you're in those arms nothing else seems to matter
because you know you're protected and safe.
It's always nice to be able to walk into open arms...
when you're upset, lonely, stressed, happy
or just need some comforting.

Those arms are like your security blanket,
they are there to catch you when you fall.
They are there to help you go that extra inch
when everything seems like it's going to come crashing down
right before your eyes. They are there to cheer you on
when you know you're not going to make it.

They are there to boost your self-esteem up
and make you realize that no matter what,
you're beautiful inside and out.
They are there because... they love you!
