“Cover Me in Your Sunshine: by Sarfraz Ahmed ( My Pen & Soul Featured Poet )

Break open the coconut shell,

Crack the heart of the yoke let it propel,

Circle the fire,

The inner flame,

Bathe me you beauty and all that exists,

I want to hold it all in my perpetual fist,


Baptise me in the warmness of your smile,

In the salt that lingers in the bottom of the sea bed,

I want to walk barefoot on the sand,

In the paradise that is,

I want to walk hand in hand,

Let it resonate in the heart of this man,


Cover me like a blanket,

Serenade me time after time,

Hold me don’t ever let me go,

Cover me in your sunshine,

Let me bathe in the afterglow.
