a poem by Sonali Shome

Content, is what I feel
Holding in my arms every layer of yours

I know I’m barely there
To gather all that you offer
But be sure that I am giving my everything
To be with you

The thick and thins I don’t mind
They just test my grip
You know I’ll twist my ways
To embrace you and your kins

For the world will have reasons
Both natural and human
To take you to the top when need be
And put in a murky place the very next day

But don’t you slip away my dear
When its windy outside
And never say goodbye when summoned
Cause you’ll be back soon, I know

My arms will have you back
Not caring for the creases you’ve endured
