Rani Turton


A Niche For Me in Your Heart


If you have some place
Some place you could well spare
Make a niche for me in your heart
To warm me within your space
I will never, never depart.

I will be more than a name and face
If you could grant me this grace
I would be more than a queen
To live in this honoured place
I would be part of your present
Not a part of your past
If only time would linger on
And make this dream last and last.

A silly poem it seems
But then, so are many dreams.

    May be this is one of such
    Most aspired spaces
    Where dwell seems to be
    A great gain, a solace.
    Not a house, no lock and key
    The cost is not known
    But seems exorbitant.
    A niche, ever and ever
    Poignantly craved for
    Never known to happen.

    Delicately engraved one.
    Enjoyed it.
    Thank you. (Report) Reply

    I did not feel it silly, it is full of dreams and it emerges from aspiration, good feel in those lines, very expressive, well done (Report) Reply
