Solace, by Faith
You fold your arms around me
and I feel my frame
melting into yours
like the missing pieces of a puzzle
and one heart beats for two.
I am crashing into you--
a falling star towards the earth--
yet with tender delicacy
you gather me in your arms
and keep me from falling apart.
It is your hands encircling my waist
that are holding me together,
keeping my soul
from reaching out towards the heat of you;
from soaring across the sky
and blazing to the ground.
You render me speechless, breathless,
yet with one flickering glance
all is laid bare
and with every breath you take
I learn to breathe again.
Never before have I felt
so close to God
as when you pull me to your heart.

|Well..I am no Christian but I didn't know it is about Jesus until the very last sentence..sounds a lot like a description of being in the warm embrace of your true love..but anyhow..I
