"Cradle Me, Baby"

As I rush into your open arms,

collapsing in relief,

hold me to your happy heart

let not this time be brief.

We'll move in perfect motion

rocking gently to the sway,

as I trust you as you trust me

I will not give us away.

Cradle me within your heart

as if a newborn soul -

softy, with a quiet kiss

complete me - I am whole.

Stay with me to watch the night,

don't give in to sleep -

out in darkened seas of sky,

we're stars within the deep.

Come the dawn and brighter beams

we'll rest, as shadows harden -

I commit this crime of love

and you will always pardon.

Ah, you must put out a book of poetry.  Do you have all your poems together in one place?  This is stunning, my Cateri!  I would love to read more of your poetry.  I know you have some in this journal.  Have you written alot through the years?  I bet you have!  Any published?  Is that a dream of yours?  Beautiful... Your Maire who wishes you love xox

I always find sharing poetry very brave because often it tells so much of the author.
I wanted to stop by, as I have been doing with a few people, to thank you for your kindness on my drinking-weepy-complaining entry :-0.  I very much appreciated your words of wisdom.

This poem, for me, stood out from all the rest, and brought a gentle warmth to my heart.  Love like this is RARE - it seldom happens in one's lifetime unless they are blessed by God.  Whoever this may be, they must be extremely special - You are one lucky lady, Cathy - and your words, once again, beautifully made your feelings come alive!  Better hang on to this one, Cath! ;)
