My Lover Has Strong Arms

by Janis Gaines

My lover has strong arms
Like a mighty citadel.
Though he dwells in flesh,
He encompasses my whole world.

These arms invite me
Into his fortress, his security,
His great tenderness,
And need for me.

In his gentle care
I am full and free,
Buoyant, without want or worry
My every dream, a majestic reality.

When his eye is on me, I am love-sick and weak.
There is no other gaze I seek.
His heartbeat woos me,
And in his love I am complete.

My lover has strong arms
Like a mighty citadel,
And though he dwells in flesh,
He encompasses all eternity.
