Safe And Sheltered

Heard the wind blowing fierce outside
Inhaled to feel whether it carried his smell

Could hear the rain drops beating on the roof
Listened to its tap-tap, may be his heart beats

Even in darkness, could see some flickers of light
Thought they were his flashing eyes searching for me

There was pregnant silence everywhere
Wished to hear him whispering my name

As hours drag on my sighs too stretched
Even tears began to blur and throat so dry

An unknown fear crept to confuse me
That he may not show up again ???

Still the mind said he cannot leave me
As long long ago we exchanged our hearts

Regained my hope and refreshed with joy
I slowly embraced a soothing nap

How I don't know, but I was in bed
His hands engulfing me so tight

Once again in his loving hold
Safe and sheltered, I slept peacefully
