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: 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

Aiming The Stars

Title: Aiming The Stars

Oh you,
So untouchable
So high
Yet so low
Dare did I think about you
Yet me you no know not
For you’re so high like the stars
Those that linger at night
With starlight peering through
I get a glimpse of you

There from the sky
Acknowledge the ground you would not
Yet I see you
Guess you see me too
Yet I am oblivion to you

Is it I am in love with the stars?
How can it be?
Oh no!
One can’t touch the stars
So unattainable
So perfect
So bright

Yet I’ll aim at the stars
I’ll turn bright
I’ll emanate if I need too
For you to see me
A light-bright star like you

So night after night
With starlight peering through
I’ll keep aiming the stars

Reaching out for you

Your Voice

Poem ID: 020

Title: Your Voice

From my deepest thoughts,
Your voice keeps calling…
It weaves my mind like heavy drums kneeling down inside me

Your voice conceals my mind,
It drives me dreamful at nights
A daydream each time a thought of you crosses my mind

From within my kidneys, my love for you dwells,
as a blaze upon my heart it stands

There from nowhere, I hear you calling…
Is it thy love driving me insane?
Or is it simply echoes from my pain?
Let it be both then,
For hope is all I hear

Your voice calling… shall be my least gain
