Shelter - Poem by Shweta Patke

I saw you staring at me
I felt at home in your eyes
A place where I can stay till eternity

You closed your eyes it was dark in there
But first time the night was so warm
Warmth which I was longing for all life long
I was lost in your eyes like a child lost in a fairy tale
Felt like a prayer born in your starry eyed gaze

Like a dream debouched in your eyes
Confined in shadows but not less than meadows

Please let me stay in there for a while
Please let me stay in there for a while
With you as a dreamer
I don’t want to be a lost mile
I don’t want to be a lost mile

    Your lover's eye is surely a great
    place to be sheltered in.
