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

So we'll go no more a-roving
