Lost then Found

•April 27, 2010 • 3 Comments
You find yourself lost and alone,
Looking for a place to call your own.
As you search and try to find a brighter day,
You realize that pieces of you were lost along the way.
You look in the mirror and see who you don’t want to see,
A stranger looks back at you, someone you never thought you’d be.
Once you were lost, now you’ve lost who you are,
Stuck in a moonless night, a darkness without a single star.
But still you find a reason to go out and live your routine life,
Hanging out with friends, being alone, overcoming strife.
You slowly become aware that you’re smiling more and more,
Pieces once lost are right back where they were before.

I Won’t Forget To Remember You

•January 24, 2010 • Leave a Comment
You hurt me once, a long time ago,
And I had to forget, to let the pain go.
For years I was happy, not knowing what I was missing,
Until you came back to try and change our ending.
I don’t want to relive this pain I went through,
But I know I’ll regret not being with you.
The crossroads are ahead, I might lose you once more.
But this time I’ll remember who my heart’s longing for.
I loved you then and I still love you now,
Even though I had forgotten somehow.
My memories were buried, never erased,
After all these years, no one can take your place.

Head Over Heels

Your smile is the highlight of my week,
But it leaves me breathless, renders me weak.
I want to tell you my feelings are sincere,
But every time I try, the words disappear.
Don’t know what happens, why I lose my nerve,
Maybe being with you is something I don’t deserve.
You are beyond words, there’s nothing I can say,
To make you understand why I feel this way.
But there’s no point in waiting, I need to let you know,
If words fail, I’ll just let my feelings show.
You’re worth all the effort, I need to make you see,
And I hope in the end, you’ll take a chance with me.

Journey

•June 8, 2009 • Leave a Comment
A long road that leads to the unknown,
Weeds thrive where flowers have grown.
The scenery is still as I walk on,
A journey to seek what lies beyond.
Tracing the contours of the winding road,
I gradually lose the burden of my load.
My body feels lighter, my soul feels free,
I’m nearing the end, I can almost see.
Overcoming struggles along the way,
Facing fears and keeping doubts at bay,
Finding strength in faith when courage eludes,
I struggled and survived despite inner feuds.
The road leads to an infinite expanse of sky,
I’m standing still but I want to fly.
I sever my bonds, cut loose my strings,
I face the future and spread my wings.

Still Waiting

•March 11, 2009 • Leave a Comment
Nothing stirs, as if time had stopped,
There is no sound except those of teardrops.
I sit on the grass alone, crying in vain,
Because there’s no one around who can feel my pain.
The whispering winds were still with no news of you,
But still I wait because you told me to.
You promised me that one day you’ll come back to me,
So I sit here and wait for that day to come to be.
The wind whispers softly in my ear,
Telling me something I’ve longed to hear.
A genuine smile replaces the tears,
Now I know that you’ll soon be with me here.

Hope

I can’t seem to look at the sky anymore,
My eyes are down, transfixed on the floor.
Walking aimlessly, head bowed in defeat,
Until I hear the welcoming crunch of grass beneath my feet.
I still keep my eyes fixed on the ground,
And as I walk, I see leaves of yellow and brown.
The fallen leaves move in the autumn breeze,
And my ears hear the rustling leaves in the trees.
As the wind lifted my spirits, I finally raise my head,
I see the beauty of the scene around me – the rain of leaves up ahead.
The ends of my lips curl up to form a smile that reaches my eyes,
The leaves have stirred hope in me, and I look up to the sky.

Frozen

The sky is dark and no stars light my way,
As I walk this beaten path with nothing left to say.
You said you loved me and I couldn’t speak,
Couldn’t say that I’m not the one you seek.
You deserve someone better, who’ll love you for you,
Someone who’ll appreciate the little things you do.
I’m not the one who can return the feelings that you hold,
Previous heartaches have taught me how to be wary and cold.
But maybe I should try again and leave it all to fate,
I need to learn to love once more and rid myself of hate.
It’s time to take a chance, to follow God’s design,
Maybe it’s you who can melt this frozen heart of mine.
