A safe haven

Do you have anything that makes you feel absolutely safe and content?

Is it a place you go to?
Or is it a certain person?
Or a group of people?
Is it in the presence of a pet?
Or is it in a special setting?
Is it a smell or a sound?
A picture or a memory?

I'm realising more and more that it is a person for me. It's all to do with this pathetic thing I just can't seem to get over no matter what I do or what happens.

But the other day, when I was in the presence of this person, I once again felt very calm. The prospect of meeting this person is always incredibly daunting, making me nervous, with sweaty palms and butterflies in my stomach. But as soon as the moment is there, everything is calm and I have no worries, about anything.

Going away afterwards is always a pain in the ass. But I live for these moments. And just thinking about them brings some sort of safety.

(And FYI: I'm this close to cracking.)

What's your safe haven?
