let me be a patch of earth,

your favourite

most secluded one,

where you often lie

to rest your weary bones.

let me be the ocean

you so adore,

wild and raw so that I may

quench your thirst,

still and calm so that I may

quell your fears.

let me be the sun

so that I may

boldly extend my rays

and gently caress your

smiling, upturned face.

let me be the down

within your pillows,

so that I may

hear the sound of

your midnight murmurs,

as you fall asleep in my embrace.

but oh darling,

we are but human.

I will let you

be you,

so let me

be me.

and you will find

no better solace than

in my arms,

and I

within yours.
