One With The Flowers

A smile with her dimple
Can wash away my trouble
Like poppies that are blooming
A hope that’s everlasting

Her contagious happiness
Reminds me that I am blessed
Like tulips in spring time
A beauty that is sublime

Her pure, genuine laughter
Soothes me, it makes me better
Like the scent of roses
A fragrance of calmness

Her ever glowing light
Changes all wrong to right
A source of life and power
She is one with the flowers

Chasing You

Hey! Would you please slow down?
I’m tired from running after you
You’re too fast and I’m so slow
Or maybe you could stop?
Wait for an hour or maybe two
So I can keep up with you

I don’t want to be left behind
I want to be on the same pace
Despite moving as fast as I could
Despite planning what to do
I always find myself in a hurry
Hurrying to be with you

But no matter what I try, what I do
You wouldn’t let me catch up
You seem close but you are far
It’s like I am chasing a ghost
Truth is, I am chasing for nothing
Maybe it’s time to stop chasing you

I’m now exhausted but I still can’t stop
I guess I’m just drawn to chasing you…
I’m drawn to chasing time…

Anxious

I live in anxiety
Of the unknown
Of all uncertainties
Of all risks

It is irrational
It is illogical
But I’m a slave
I’m under its spell

I am trapped
It’s controlling me
Fear is taking over
Soon I’ll find my end

Then it will be done
As I succumb to it
And to nothingness
That’s where I’ll be

My Second Chance

Writer’s Note: I wrote this when my baby fell from the bed. Our floor is not carpeted but I put comforter and pillows on it. Thank God she was fine.

It was not real
As I cried and cried
I knew I could never go back
I could never turn back the time
To save you
To protect you

I just let it happened
You fell and I wasn’t there
You were scared
I abandoned you
I betrayed your trust
I failed you

I thank God, Jesus and your angel
For looking after you
For giving us a second chance
I promise to make amends
I promise I’ll be better
I love you so much

Can your forgive me?
Can you take my hand again?
I will do my best to keep you safe
I won’t ever leave
My life, I will offer to you
If only to not lose you
