Sanctuary ~Cindy Bendel & Henry M.~

Dark skies, in a clouded mind

All this day worry, fret, and fear

Closed eyes conjure your image

When just like a dream you appear


Come and put your head on my shoulder

Let me ever put your soul at ease

Life just sometimes has a way

 Of bringing you to your knees


Whenever you feel forlorn

Come into the safety of these arms

Let them be your sanctuary

From the world and all its harms


To know that you are present

In good times and in bad

Your patient understanding

Brings a sweet peace from what is sad


My shelter in life’s dark moments

The strength which I depend

Is rooted in deep emotion

And a love that never ends


These arms will always be here

You are my life, my devotion

 The love inside this heart of mine for you

 Would fill the deepest ocean



Come to me when you're feeling blue

Your tears I'll wipe away

A heart that's as big as yours

 Should never see a troubling day


Author's Notes:

Thank you Cindy, your words really made this work out beautifully! Thanks for writing with me!

This is beautiful and heart-warming!  It really expresses the feeling of the title- sanctuary--
Very soothing and comforting and full of love! :o)

Truly enjoyed.
