Just For This Once

I think that I will enjoy being with you
Just for this once
Because I feel safe enough to trust you.
To put your arms around me
and hold me close.
You make me feel like it's safe to enjoy you.
The sight and smell and feel of you.
There's no rage or deceit in the heart
I feel beating on top of mine.
Only gentleness in your touch and moves and glides.
Sinking into the soft warm safeness of your space.
We are one. We can be one.
And you don't push me away or make me feel small.
I feel strong when I put myself in your care.
It's not a mistake, I know.
Waking up with you still there,
Feeling your breath on my hair.
And you tighten your hold on me as I do on you.
I'm not alone. I'm not alone.
I am worthy of being loved and cared for.
Respected and treated gently.
What I've been looking for my whole life.
I don't know what the future holds for us.
But I feel that I can dare to love another
Just for this once.

Peace and love,
