My Safe Haven

I could go miles and miles away
yet I will choose to stay
in the place and the moment
we held hands for the first time

I could paddle my way, over
the greater currents and superior waves
yet I will choose to row
my way back to the place and time
we fought our biggest fight
for the first time

I could live in paradise, or create
my own little beautiful world
yet I sure am will choose
to be with you, my paradise,
my little beautiful world

my safe haven

For Kate’s Friday – Fun
