On Your Lap

For happiness alone why should I aspire?
Pray keep me instead seated on your lap 
Let happiness to ashes zap.
 
If the ground below my feet begins to sway,
Your tight grip will not let me go astray,
Cradled in your arms you’ll keep me swinging in your trap.
 
Wherever my home I try to build,
Let arrive a mighty deluge,
If you have chosen to drown away my all,
I will not seek refuge.
 
I accept defeat and worry no more,
Your winnings are mine as well for sure,
Surrender shall I for then alone 
Our relationship won’t snap.
