Safe Haven - Poem by Dave Dafes

We all alike,
Crave for a nest to rest,
A place we could,
Cease to toil,
Never anxious, ever joyful,
Cause perfect peace in it resides,

A safe haven were respite is rife,
But where can we find
Such refuge to lounge,
When strife is the badge
We humans bear,
As our ev’ry search,
Into a blind alley leads,

But for you, a safe haven I’ll be,
So you can retreat,
Whenever the boisterous winds buffets,
And the temper of the tempest
Against you incense,
When frightened by the lightning spark,
Then you can in my arms hibernate,
Till the Spring springs forth,

I’ll be there to catch you when you fall
Will hold you till the fear in you subside,
In my heart, will I shield you
From the cold hostile street,
Lest nobody gets to you,

In this safe haven I thee create,
Time‘d cease to count,
As the world’s care doth echoes
From a million miles away,
The only sound you'll hear
Would be the speechless
Banter of our hearts,
Conversing with each other
In the unknown tongue
Only another heart could understand,

As you lie here in my arms
The deafen quiet of our souls
'd be beyond the world’s reach,
Here you'll be safe
For nothing 'd get to you,
Here you’re home
