I saw the news today

I saw the News today
And I'm really afraid
Because you are there
On this black list
Of al-Qaeda terrorists
I'm not yet, probably
It's because my country
Is not yet rich enough
To be worth of the terrorists' holy bombs
But, my love, this way
I want more that you could stay
At my land for good
I need to protect you
I'd like to hide you somewhere
Maybe at this little town
When we met in the mountains
How I'd like to see you there
Safe and only for me, dear
But if you need to fly
Maybe only to get by,
So all right, I understand
You are the man, but
I spread the coat of love
To protect you forever my boy
I hope you will be fine
Because you are mine.

Anna Cellmer Claim this poet

I am a Polish female living in the heart of the greenest region of Poland called 'The land of a thousand lakes'. I am married and a mother of two beautiful boys, working at the University of Warmia and Mazury at the Real Estate Management and Regional Development Chair. Poetry is the subject I use to fill my days, to make them full of love, light and smiles and hidden desires.Much of what I write is based on personal experiences and people who have come my way during this long trip of life which I live by.The inspiration comes from life and everything that touches my heart.
