"In Your Arms" by Illenium


Safe in Your Arms

Your strength
gives me courage,
your love
gives me hope,
your laughter
makes me smile.

The positive way
you live life
helps release my fear,
the way you hold me close
makes me feel safe.

If my days were numbered,
I would remain
safe in your arms,
embracing your love
one last time.


The strength of a man isn't seen in the power of his arms.

It's seen in the love with which he embraces you.

— Dr. Steve Maraboli
