A home for our hearts

Are you my girl next door?
Do you live on the floor,
Above my glass ceiling?

Are you the fire,
That glows in my hearth?
The warmth in the air,
Bringing lightness of breath?

Will we build four walls around us?
Yet leave space for windows,
And doors wide open?

Are you the roof over my head?
Where someday,
We shall share the same bed?

Is there a home to be made betwixt us?
Will our hearts form mutual sanctuary,
A shelter from the storm?

We cannot know if it’s meant to be.
But first we can construct a shack,
That’s temporary.

And if it weathers,
The elements well,
We can always build,
A stronger shell.

Laughter and light,
Will be our blocks.
Love and compassion,
Our sand and cement.

With understanding,
As our foundation.
Together in love,
Growth and transformation.
