Soul mates

Calmness is the brightest room in the house.

I would like to see you

take some rest in my arm chair. 

 

I won’t charge you any rent

to live in my universe.

Take a deep breath,  

unpack all your sorrows, and tomorrow

let’s have breakfast together.  

 

I can’t promise you the sun, 

nor the moon,

nor the stars.

But I’ll turn on all the lights

to make you feel at home

 

Calmness is the brightest room in the house.

I would like to see you

take a nap on my shoulder blade. 

 

For your soul and my soul

share a blanket of trust

as strong as an armour. 

 

Note: This poem is inspired by Hafiz’ poem “Your Mother and My Mother”, which I came upon in Kate Clanchy’s book “How to grow your own poem”.
