Staying Alive

Perhaps all the work I did

The nails I drove

The garden beds

I labored in and love

The paint that cheers the inside light

Were a foreshadowing 

A Hadrian\'s Wall

Defense against the stealthy foe

A safe place to retreat

A flight

Which I thought you\'d share

But you had to leave

Yet another reason why

I stay in my house of Peace
