Saviour you are
Comfort flavour you are
Soothing vapour discharged
From your freezing abooode

Come live with me forever
Your leave could revive the fever
Your counterpart left when the sun’s smile was harsh on me

If I’m not asking for much,
Follow me to my bed place
Where you always avoid
Sleep with me tonight and shame the night terror
Do not just remain out here serving goats and sheep.

Should the walls be an impediment? Since you claim to the omnipresent, Exhibit your prowess now that is needed.

Shame! You can’t!
The burglars stop now halts this comfort.
What a world!
