I wish I could hide within you. I wish I could find you and hold you. I wish you were my security from the storms of life, the warmth I would cling to when I am cold and lost in the world. I wish I could curl up inside you, safe and warm.
Other times I feel I want to be the rock that shelters you, the shoulder you cry on and the knight that fights for your honor. I want to destroy your fear and pain and sorrow. I want to be your hiding place as much as I want you to be mine.
That is love between a man and woman, finding peace in your arms when the wars of life become too much to bare. And to be your strength when you are weak.
The path, my love, seems so impossible, a chasm of time and space is between us. Can we make it? Can we be everything for each other? I hope and pray that we can.
