I Still Long For Your Arms - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

Strange, I still long for your arms
There many a time I found by calm
Till they became old and cold to the bone
Till you became as ruthless as a cold stone

You said in life I had nothing to fear
No matter what happened, you would always be there
But your once comforting arms are no where near

I close my eyes, I see your smile
Stored away in my memory file
Now I know you knew it all that while
Because that has always been your style
We were never going to trek those miles

I still long for your arms
With my face in my palms
I close my eyes and say it once more
Saying it is just a memory that will do me no harm
