When day is drawing final breath
and nights' lights blink their start of day,
clock-ordered chores are put to rest
and even troubles put away-
I crawl into our waiting bed,
enfold myself within your arms
and let you ease my weary head,
freely submitting to your charms-
The world is tucked away
safe, yet, another day.
If waking brings heart's heavy sorrow
and shattered, fractured times you find;
if all spins out of control tomarrow-
remember our bed and this peace of mind:
Right now the world is tucked away-
safe again for another day

A heartening poem this, full of such much needed human warmth… home-made, heart-made sanctuary, and a sense of perspective too, a reminder that our best chance and best hope is “there’s always tomorrow”. Beautiful...

That’s some view btw, blue-ridge mountains?

I like this
A quiet, happy, safe moment in the midst of whatever goes on around you, every other hour of the day. A good subject for a poem, and a very pleasant read. Made me smile!
