Solace

i_792_lighthouse-004

Hush now and sleep my dear

Tomorrow will be a beautiful morn.

Gently wrap your fingers around mine

And safely sail your dreams with my embrace.

Drop your anchor and lay your troubles

So long buried underneath.

The storm you faced has just passed

and you’ve held your head high.

You’ve been shielding yourself from the waves of pain

Crashing you  down with its weight.

I’ll be the rock to your tears

The balm to your fears.

So slowly close your eyes and just breathe

And like music you’ll hear my heartbeat.

Let me carry you through this night

Where you’ll be at ease and be.


BE-ginning

look out

There’s a light in your eyes

Sparkling like the clear waters

When you walked by

My ugly windows.

And here I am, just watching

Letting life pass by

Hearing the ills of the world

Seeing the empty shells of people.

Feeling half-awake

With the thick walls

I built upon myself-

That started to crumble.

Confused Am I

With the fear of tomorrow

Hanging in the air-

So much for hoping.

So like water I float

Letting the flow lead me

Somewhere I can be-

Somewhere I belong.
