Shelter me


shelter me with your embrace

so I shall be safe tonight

to see at least one friendly face

so much hurt there’s to erase

keep me far away from light

shelter me with your embrace

wrap me in your finest lace

yes there has been another fight

to see at least one friendly face

I ran to you like other days

does my instinct tell me right?

shelter me with your embrace

Β for me there is no better place

I have to be out of his sight

to see at least one friendly face

you are my haven just in case

stolen moments that you might

shelter me with your embrace

to see at least one friendly face


( a tragedy in verse)

    I loved the use of repetition, it just brought out the yearn and security wanted against the storm that many face without any port to shelter within – outstanding~
