Safe Haven - A Poem

Updated on May 19, 2015

At times we need emotional and spiritual support, it takes a lot of courage to face the world alone. We need strong arms to help us see through our day to day existence. We need support group or people who share the same ideals with us. We need to have an equal footing so as not to stumble whilst we fall. This poem is for people who light the fire for us when our own tends to diminish its strength.


Safe Haven

In your Arms

I feel safe and secure

A nook I could take refuge

So sturdy, yet pliable


I could pour my heart out

I could tell my stories

Like a gushing river

Devoid of torrent

My words gushing forth


Bursting with elation

Like a moppet

Who has learned how to talk

The first words were

Of love and amazement

Of how marvelous

Life in the offing


In your arms there I find home

Haven at last!

      I appreciated this. For those who had and lost this, it is a long road back, but worth the uphill climb to reach the pinnacle again.
