Sanctuary by Darcee Jean Gundlock

Winner of the poetry category, Mensa Canada 2016 Literary Contest

and I shall come home
into bed
under the covers
into your waiting arms

haven from the universe
planets
moons
stars

and there I'm safe
loved
caressed
in your waiting arms

safe sanctuary sharing
our bodies
souls
hearts

and there I'll wait
when you are gone
your journey to be done

and you shall come home
into bed
under the covers
into my waiting arms.
