What is it to feel safe? 

A hug? Someone to tell you things will be okay?

Shut behind a large door  praying no one can get in.

Going to bed to try and feel safe. .

Still don’t feel safe  ….

A Faded Romantic's Notebook

Art by Francine van Hove

When the world

is torn by conflict

starved by greed

betrayed by belief

brutal with hate

it is enough to know

that you,

my angel,

are safe.
