My Arms Outstretched

My Arms Outstretched

my arms outstretched
seek comfort
from you,
my friend, my special friend
here from beginnings
when days felt like an end
caring for you
as i do
deeply, from days when i am awake
to days when all i do is sleep
give me hope,
my arms outstretched
we can collect
we can charm
never let your babies
come to any harm
turn on lights
when the landing strip is closed
seek comfort
from you, always you
do you not know?

James Garratt – January 2018
