In my arms I wish she'd be But I reach out, Only a shadow I see I am not void of rue I ache to hold you Steady and safe Never out of sight Time must turn back! That I may cease to pine For one who was mine Her love eternal and pure As night faded away So did she In her frailty She let go In her arms, I breathed my first In my arms She breathed her last.
In her arms I lay For the very first time that day Safely entwined Lovingly cradled To her bosom My life and my home
In her steadfast arms A constant haven of warmth Ever the sturdy pillars Which held me to endure I yearn and I plea Where else would I be? In her arms, now a dream Gone forever now for real.
