I Could Only

I want to understand all your worries and cries
Then shelter you from harm, take away all your sighs
If only I could‎, I’d be the one who’d feel your pain
But I could only be there when you face the rain

I want to know why you are stressed or hurting
So I could give you the comfort you’ve been longing
If only I could, I’d forever hold you tight
But I could only touch you and tell you it’s all right

I want to understand all the things that you need
Then respond to all your cries and soothe all your plead
If only I could, I’d surely give you everything
But all I have is this love hoping it’s the only thing

One Summer

Writer’s Note: This is the hospital where I gave birth one summer day/night.

The excitement is all around
I hear joyful music and sound
‎Somebody is arriving
In this fine summer morning

But seems we’re waiting in vain
Anticipation’s a pain
Is she really coming soon?
In this summer afternoon?

‎It gets harder by the second
It seems I’m dying, I reckon
No more strength but keep pushing
It’s been a long summer evening

Now exhaustion is all around
When will a miracle be found?
Then she finally shines her light
In this beautiful summer night

Can I Hold You?

If I can, I will protect you from all harm
I will keep you close and safe here in my arms
So each time you cry which I cannot dismiss
I look at you and I know I cannot resist
I cannot help but to hold you forever
Hoping to take away your fears or whatever
So sleep soundly in my chest, little one
Hear the music of my heart, little one
Let it be your warmth, your peace, your harmony
Let me enjoy this moment that you still need me

You

You steal all my time
You conquer my mind
You seem like trouble
You are a hard job

You’re like my shadow
I can’t leave you behind
Now it’s hard to move
As you’re always around

You had me cornered
You changed me just like that
Now my hands are tied
There’s no going back

But it’s ironic
As you are my bliss
You remove my doubts
With you, there is peace

You shine a new light
You are inspiration
You are my heart and soul
You are my life
