As the years go by
The tears won’t dry
More fears arise
To make me wise
The ego cries
That’s not paradise.

The beloved hides
But still it guides
My every step
So there’s no trap.

The beloved will come
Take me in his arm.
Forever shall…

Yesterday we fell in love
Tomorrow we’ll be husband and wife.
But what about today
You never see me
You’re always busy.

I remember the day me met
All the times we hung out
Until one day you told me
You’ve fallen for me.

I remember the day
You knelt on one knee
You purposed to me,
You said, “Girl will you marry me?”

But what about today
You never see me
You’re always busy.

Can our love survive?

We died with you and rose again;
Feels like we’re floating in space.
But your absence causes great pain,
Though we feel you, we miss your face.

Everything’s different, yet all’s the same;
Everything’s here but you.
Though your face is captured in a frame
We miss your voice, your smile, too.

Though you’re near, you are far
Yet in the wind you sway
Now you dwell among the stars
We will miss you each day.

Dad, Come back

I should be strong
I should not cry
But it’s all wrong
You shouldn’t have died.

Hiding under the shower,
I’m cryin’ my eyes out
Thinking of you every hour
I just want to say it loud:

Dad, I missed you, I still need you
Please come back.
There’s so much we need to do;
We need you back…

And some nights I do not see the moon
Shinning in the night-sky;
But I know it will be back soon
Because it cannot die.

Though I miss its shy smile
And my soul longs for its energizing glow;
I know I need to wait a while
And it will be back once more.
