Safe Haven

 

 

the spattering and splashing of the waves from the ocean striking and surging, every movement

is like the rushing and rustling mess in my head, comes back bigger and greater with every

descent

and as I lay my head unto your chest

I listened carefully to the silent beating of your heart

I am in a placid state, undisturbed, unruffled, wave less

you wrap your zealous arms around me

in a tender whisper you say “rest now, my love, keep still”

there, in your loving arms, I found my sweetest and safest haven

p.s.

how do we heal  amidst all the chaos and turmoil in our lives right now? how do we mend our broken hearts, our broken dreams and promises? we find healing in the comfort of our loved ones, in the arms of those who understand, those who care: they are our source of strength, our reason to believe in love and in hope. our family, our loved ones, our partners, our children, our parents, our siblings, our friends, our relatives and even the ones we see everyday who continue to fight and survive. and just like a tree we stand tall and firm, deeply rooted, unmindful of the raging storm. 

p.s.s

things have been very tough lately, so i will be very slow with reading and responding to all of your posts and comments, but i will be back with my usual blogging/writing mode as soon as i am settled.

we pray for the world to heal as one.

  1. Mich, I’m sorry to hear things have been tough for you. It seems life’s challenges can be overwhelming but we can’t let it get the best of us. Remain strong like the sturdiest tree and declare it your safe haven. Thank you for joining in and take care. ❤️

  2. This is a love filled poem! We do take refuge in loving arms – spouse, lover, parent, even siblings and grandparents… I like to imagine the Holy Spirit as the “Great Comforter” wrapping me in a loving and safe embrace. It has gotten me through all kinds of troubles. (I still use the image when I’m in the dentist’s chair!)
    As for trees standing against the storms – they have to bend with the storm else they will break. A lesson for us in times of difficulty. Learn to bend with the wind and send roots deep. And when the storm passes you will still be rooted and standing tall.
    Hugs to you. I hope the troubles pass and you are unscathed.
