In His Arms

He held me in his arms
And for the first time in my life
I was content
To just breathe,
Just lay with him for hours,
Listening to the soft sighs
And low murmurs,
Slowly drifting off to sleep.
I stared,
Wondering how someone
Could look so peaceful,
So relaxed,
Even if just for a moment.
I know if I move he'll wake
And pull me closer;
The thought makes me smile.
I wonder what it'll be like
To wake up to him
Each and every morning,
To fall asleep
Safe in his arms
Each and every night;
I used to wonder what happiness
Felt like,
What it meant to be at peace
With the world,
To feel safe and loved,
But I don't anymore,
I found that
In his arms.
