In my arms I hold

As I am illuminated by

the spotlight of a screen

in my arms I hold

my love

my treasured

a child being


I feel them breathing in safety

and the comfort of being held

by their mama

their nurturer

the connection to the world


some days they need to cling

to hold on to me

in desperation

they need to know me

because I'm the only place in the world

that provides relief from the storm


eventually their grasp

fingers once held so tightly

loosen, relax and

calm


in my arms I hold my love

my treasured child being.
