I sat in my home cocooned in my space,

Nothing or no one can penetrate the walls I made.

Some call me goner, while others think I am a joke,

But I am happy to live in a daze,

If you are with me and all around are the sun’s warm rays.


I still remember the day you walked into my life,

Those two beads of gray gazing at me

that went straight through my heart.

I poured out my soul to you,

just like that.


You didn’t ask any questions,

I don’t know why.

Just sat beside me as I drained myself

 and I didn’t need anyone else.

But fate is cruel and gone was the godsend.


I cried and crumbled,

I wailed and whimpered,

But you had gone off to a faraway land

I couldn’t follow you.

And all you left were aching memories behind.


Determined not to give my heart away ever again

I turned it into ice

Before and after you,

my life was never the same

and I was beginning to draw back into my cocoon.


As I sat beside my window

Glowing in your reminiscence,

I noticed a movement.

Someone was trying hard to break in,

I couldn’t care.


But then I saw the small face,

and my heart soared alive.

Those furry little feet with gray eyes,

stirred something within me.

Despite myself, I took in the godsend intruder,

and I could feel the ice melt away.
