there's no safer haven than
the home built upon your hands
both of which mine are eager to occupy
maybe until the world ends
even my hands,pale and cold
blush and burn at the sight of yours
in loving comfort do they enfold
these idle hands in need of hold
so keep me away from any harm
I'll survive any distress and storm
if you take my hands,you'll make them warm
with such a simple act,I feel safely home

In Yoruba land where I hail from, your poetry is put in a proverb form that "one cannot be decieved by one's palms (atelewo eni ki tan ni je)" Nice one!
