I Will Be Your Shelter

I Will Be Your Shelter

A Poem by Amanda



I will be your shelter

Here in my arms

You can rest

Put your mind at ease

Calm your heart and soul.


Long has been your journey

To seek what is out in the world

Weary from your travels

Entrust me with your thoughts

Tell me of all you have seen.


Speak to me of what troubles you

Let me relieve you of the pain

Caused by others

Here in the comfort of my arms

You can be free of it all.


I will envelop you in my love

Wrapping you comfortably in

The warmth and security

That you have searched for

On your travels of the world.


I will be your shelter

Come to me….

Stirring stuff. Strong love and a strong instinct to give are captured here. The promise in the lines is blissful.

This is beautiful Amanda and could apply to any love/romantic situation. It is poignant and reminiscent of the greats, Keating, Browning/Barret...easy flowing compassion and true care...almost a desperate attempt to love against their will to trust.
Kudos from me, you are in a class of your own.

I can only admire and respect such a noble calling.

This poem is comforting and caring.

These words alone can sooth ones pain or sense of alienation and lonliness.

It brought a smile and for that I thank u. Keep touching hearts.

Much love n' respect
