Sanctuary


By William P. Darnell Sr. 


Crawl into my sanctuary,

and leave this world behind.


Open your heart and let me in,

then close the door of your mind. 


Wrap yourself in my blanket, 

as dark as the ocean deep. 


Your tears gently sparkle,

like diamonds while you weep.


I will hold you tightly,

protect you from all that is wrong. 


And when you long for comfort, 

I will bring you a Phoenix’ song. 


Don’t cry my flightless Angel,

your Halo still shines so bright.


Together we will find your wings,

and soon you will be in flight. 


So tonight, please be peaceful,

I know you are feeling weary. 


So rest, wrapped up in my blanket,

inside my sanctuary.
