In Your Arms


Each second goes by,

I can hear it on the clock,

The noise it makes is

A loud tick tock,

I can hear and feel

Your heart keep time,

As I lie in your arms,

And hold you in mine.


The time is passing and

I don't want to waste it,

I cant spit it out but

I cant contain it,

I want to tell you,

What I know is true,

As I'm lying here with you.


I take a deep breath,

The two, then three,

Trying to express

What you mean to me,

I open my mouth

To say those three words,

Then hear the sweetest thing

I've ever heard.


Your lips brush my ear,

And time stands still,

'I love you' you whisper,

'And always will'.

The End
