Another day is finally done
We peel away our stress
Like an unwanted layer

The soft linens feel welcoming
To our exhausted bodies as
You pull my body against yours

In a world full of uncertainty 
I claim this space, our space
And I wear your embrace like armor

I worry such fear will dull 
The vibrant love we created
But lying here it engulfs me 

Your soft lips graze along my neck
Just this simple gesture offers me
An escape from the uncertainty 

I tangle my entire self in you
As I forget the headlines
The fear and the brokenness

All that exists in this moment
Is a language only we know
Spoken between naked bodies

Lying here in my safe place
I know with certainty that
I wish this peace for everyone

A love that is their harbor
Protecting them from the storm
And a language all their own

When the entire world
Is spinning out of control
Your love is my gravity
