I wish that I could build a nest

of feathered down


a deep retreat -

a place of safety


and hold you there

and let you sleep -

without re-occurring dreams

 - -   or voiceless fears


I wish that I could build a nest

a warming hug - -


a comfort for your future

where the tangled bonds that bind

fall fast away -

- and free your mind


I wish that I could build a nest

-   -  a shelter from all torment -

where a weepimg heart can safely rest -

                                      -   -   -   a place of healing,

This poem speaks to a deep-seated instinct for security and companionship. I really enjoyed it, Flyntland.
