The Wind’s Call

Title: The Wind’s Call

Where are you?
I keep calling in the Winds
North, South, East, and West but mere echoes
I remember a Wind once
Sweet it was
Wondering if it came to you that night
Little I knew, my quest would be so long

T’Emptiness inside of me ache for you
Long for your touch and feel
Thought I found you
Thought I knew you
Still all there’s mystery

Leave me a trace
Even the blurriest, carried with the Wind
Let ‘t entice me
Let the sweet and peaceful Draft carry me

Don’t you feel the urge?
The heat, rushing through you
Don’t you rustle?
Listen to ‘ts nightly song
For they carry our bond

The Wind shall rise
I lose no faith
North or South, East or West
I’ll feel your trace and find you

The Sky may fall then
But the Winds be whispering,
One word…
Your name

Title: Distant

Distant sky…
Far Above us so gray
Blurs life and leads astray

Distant so the future seems
Like the crepuscule lucent but dims.
A long way path that ain’t trim

Distant but yet so close
To the touch, but you feel it lose
Thus, are hard times, giving no lapse

Distant and alone they let feel
Entice you believe In no heal
So let me take your hand and lead

So you know I’m not distant from you
A faithful friend to help you through
An ally vowing to be true

From distant gray to blue
Leaving darkness no clue
Of the happiness we pursue

You’re Strong

Title: You’re Strong

Oh you!
Leaving my heart in awe
Mending your path through a rough way
How you’d manage you did thought
But little did you know
How strong is that heart of yours
How its beauty is incomparable fairness
Solid as rock you stay still
As a stronghold, established so firmly
So trial-proof

Winds blows,
Break others down
Tear others apart
But your sweet tender smile is essence for their wounds
There where they tumble, you my little one stay still
There where they feel low, you comfort by your mere presence

Oh heart!
How difficult I know it is to stay firm
To hold on tight to the hope in horizon
As such the moon light In the gray sky so dim
But forget not, as real is the moon
Hope do reside
So touchable, so close, so bright
So keep your head up and stay strong
Eyes forward and ever sparkling
For my heart is forever with you…
Stronger together…

A Brother’s Promise

Title: A Brother’s Promise

To the world’s loveliest little sister,
These words to you belong
Keep them dear
For they are evidence of my love

For whatever you’ve been through
Remember that alone you are not anymore
For apart from a God’s strong hand,
I am by your side
Hoping to guard you safe
Holding you dear

Whenever you feel empty,
I’ll hold your hand
To help you fill the blank pages of your life
With happiness and love
And my reward shall be your sweet tender smile

I’ll be the gatherer of your tears
And your sorrows… I’ll take upon my shoulders
For oh my little sister,
thee are so too precious

So please promise me,
That these words will be your everlasting hope
Living in your heart forever
Alike a secret lover

Loving Juliet

Title: Loving Juliet

Juliet, you are the breeze –
Certain but unsteady between trees at night
With your sweetness and grace
You fill my heart with hope and reason to fight
Ain’t no soul like thee
My heart knew when I saw you first
That you are my life’s sweetie

With your sweet smile, you concealed thy broken heart
Little did I know, you were so hurt,
Cold as ice
Letting no other soul entice

Thy God gifted kindness
Entices me dearly to withdraw thy loneliness
Consider me thy prince,
Holding you dear as the fragile white Lys

My Juliet,
Let your fears be through
Let our soul be true
For witness is this Jealousy in thee,
Refusing hence, to let thy love free

I Juliet,
Beseech you forget never
That love for thee shall end ever
For you are the rhyme of my endless nights
Daydreaming ‘bout you and I in arms so tight

My dear Juliet,
That night of you and I
When the hearts no more lie
When our love so intense
Hand in hand we sensed
A heavenly moment of togetherness

For you, my love shall never fade
Now that our souls are bond to fate
Be my bride
For I promise to ever-stand by your side
Overflowing thy mended heart with happiness

Only then Juliet,
Content my heart will be
So when you smile…
The whole world is mine
