Give me a line and I’ll start to write
I’ll combine the words and make it right
I’ll tell a story and give my whole
Igniting the readers’ mind and soul

Give me a brush and I’ll start to paint
The colours of my life without taint
I’ll show my other side, my passion
Depicting my world, my emotion

Give me a subject and I’ll capture
Notable moments in a picture
It could be a beauty or a mess
Reflecting existence, its realness

Give me a note and I’ll start to play
A music that is not a cliche
I’ll compose a tune that will remain
Soothing hearts, taking away the pain

Away From You

It feels weird that you’re not here beside
I’m adopting but I miss you terribly
I miss your warmth, hugging me tenderly
Being away from you is killing me

As time goes by it will be easier
But I’m afraid you would not remember
The past year that we spent together
Just you and me creating forever

Please be safe and happy, that’s what I pray
Then I’ll be fine, I’ll make it through the day
If there’s a miracle to find the way
I still wish to be with you or make you stay

This Moment

This is the moment I dreaded
This is the hardest thing ever
And I ask where are we headed
Despite knowing it’s for the better

I want this day to never end
Freeze time when I’m holding you tight
Have an eternity to spend
But we must say goodbye tonight

I know we both need this to grow
If only I could stay, be with you
But it’s now time to let you go
Yet I’m just here, still loving you

A Year Ago

A year ago, 8 pounds of delight arrived
Wrapped with innocence, she made us feel alive
Bundled with pure smile, she marked a beginning
Of new inspiration, purpose and meaning

A year ago, a present came from above
A 20 inch gift swaddled with joy and love
A blessing that will forever be treasured
A real happiness that cannot be measured

A year ago, Alisha Nini was born
My life’s been better, it will never be scorned
Our baby, you always make things beautiful
And to God, I’ll be eternally grateful

Defeated

I fell and I stumbled
I was down, I was troubled
I can’t pick myself up
There was no way to get up
No strength to even try
And all I could do was cry
From despair, from anger
For not having the power
To control my dumb mind
Then command the brain to find
The love and the passion
To seek a motivation
But I only faltered
To defeat, I surrendered

I Am Here

Why are you scared, my dear?
It’s a new world, I know
I’m beside you, I’m here
I won’t leave, I won’t go
And I promise you…

Chorus 1:
I will never leave you
I am just here
I’ll forever hold you
Locked in my embrace

Or you can take my hand
I’ll wipe away your tears
Then together we’ll stand
Let’s drive away your fears
And I promise you…

Chorus 2:
I will never leave you
I am just here
You are always safe here
Here in my arms

You are always safe here
Here in my arms…

One With God

When the blue sky is turning into gray
I get lost, always searching for answers
When things get tough and not going my way
It’s the time to pause and say my prayers

When I lose grip on things I can’t control
I question how and why it’s so unjust
I feel I’m farther away from my goal
But I try to let go and put my trust

I rely on the miracle from above
Where I can’t be ignored, I am not odd
And it is all about faith, hope, and love
Then I try, I aim to be one with God
