Blow Me Away



Rock me to sleep

as you blow me away

Because your gusts and threats

are what soothe me

until I can see the day.

I feel you surround me.

I know you’re right here.

You haven’t abandoned me just yet

and your menace

is what makes you so dear.


I missed you.

It’s been so long

since I’ve heard a creak.

I longed for your cool warmth

and I must admit

it makes me so weak.

Please don’t leave so soon.

Keep your symphony tapping on my window.

Let me fall asleep in your arms

as you make a ruckus

and let your wind blow.
