“Roof Over My Head” by Sarah Gamutan


It is like a home- your safety.
It can be you. It can be the stars

It's where your happiness is
Where your soul dances with me

Not just another typical poetry
Aye, you fulfill my existence

Not just a typical lover
You forgive my shortcomings

Probably, you are my god
I have always been protected

I really can't figure out
But I shan't tremble with fear

It will give me a vision
That is within and intimate

It is how you respond
It is how you react and defy

those forces, the inevitable
