Angel Of Death

Listen, I hear a flapping sound
No, I am not imagining
It’s distant yet it’s from beyond
Clearly, it’s a flutter of wings

Flap! Flap! It’s louder and louder
I think it’s coming to get me
You hear it? It’s getting closer
I must hide – where’s the place to be?

Running now – faster and faster
But the sound is now deafening
Slowly changing into laughter
So I stop then find it’s smiling

What’s this creature? It’s enchanting
I’m paralyzed by its wide grin
It’s approaching, spreading its wings
Clutching me as I return its grin

Darkness And Light

It is getting darker and darker
Soon, I’ll be blinded by the night
How will I look and see beyond
When the sun is disappearing?
My other senses are alerted
But they have no awareness

It’s pitch black now and I’m scared
Where am I? Why am I left here?
I grab onto something – it’s cold
A metal hand rail for support
I wonder if it’s strong enough
To carry my weight, my cross

The hand rail is leading me
Going nowhere, descending
My world suddenly crumbles
A blurred vision is then shown
My past, my life up to now
Playing in an infinite loop

It’s never ending, I want out
The rail will also soon collapse
I start to sink, struggling in vain
Something below is tugging me
I’m helpless, ready to give in
Then a strong hand reaches to me

It lifts me up, it rescues me
A ray of light is now at sight
Then a face is slowly forming
Now, it’s the only thing I see
It glows, His smile is glowing
It shines, He’s shining upon me

Silence (As The Dawn Breaks)

The dawn breaks
The shield surrounding
The silence of my mind
It is slowly cracking
Silence is breaking free
It is rattling
A pain that is unnerving
It is discomforting
As I hear its whispers
As I hear its shrieks
It is echoing in my head
Over and over –
Shhhhh…

The silence is shouting
A scream of trouble
A deafening sound
It is about to explode
Ready to devour
The world full of noise
Resistance no more
The mind in full surrender
As the silence finally breaks…

Shhhhh…
Gone are my worries
Gone is my sanity
Just a peaceful accord
Between the mind
And the quietness
Uniting as one –
One mind, one body
One soul, one heart
At last, this is bliss
The bliss of silence
Then, I embrace the light…

As the dawn breaks…

Drawn

It’s pulling me into the darkness
It’s dragging me to its nothingness
It’s enveloping me with its wings
An inexplicable force it brings

I tried to struggle, to take control
But its power is strong, it won’t fall
Something magical is taking me on
Repulse no more, I’m being drawn

It’s blackness is showing a new light
It’s delivering me from a plight
I’m enticed by its obscurity
Somehow, it is comforting me

Descent

And I am gradually falling
From nil to nowhere, I’m just falling…
Let me feel the power of gravity
And slowly pull me to infinity

And I am now losing my grip…
Let go as I sink into the deep
Submit to the vast vacuum of space
And welcome the black hole’s warm embrace

And I am actually liking this…
A descent from sobriety’s abyss
Fall deeper into the galaxy
And accept the will of eternity

Your Smile

Author’s Note: This is an excerpt from my last night’s long and vivid dream.

Today, I woke up from a dream –
Many were trapped in a huge mansion
Running from infected, looking for a way out
Then you were kidnapped.
People ran from one room to another.
People hid while figuring an escape route.
Until I finally found you
In a forest-like room, you were standing
You were full of life,
You were happy and free.
You asked, “How’s life? Any kids yet?”
I said, “None, of course but everything’s fine.’
Then I told you, “Let’s keep moving.
The infected are coming.”
“I’m tired from running, let me stay here.”
Unsure if I would agree but time is passing
I know I can’t force you to so I just said:
“Can I at least embrace you for one last time?”
As I was spreading my arms to hug you tight
You were slowly vanishing –
But the last thing that disappeared
Was the smile stuck in your lips…

Today, I woke up from a dream
Where I saw you happy and free.

It’s almost four years since you left
And I am still missing your presence
Your love and greatness I will never forget
And I will always remember that smile –
Your smile which was stuck in your lips
As I was embracing you last night.
I miss you. I love you, Mommy.

Memories Of You

Author’s Note: Another poem that is intended to be a song but its melody is still missing.

In a ski trip, we first met
You were laughing with friends
Enjoying your hot chocolate
Warming up for your next trail

We were side by side lining up
We chatted, I was mesmerized
We exchanged numbers, it was the start
Our story had just begun

And I cling to this day we met…

Chorus:
The snowflake in your nose
The way you close your eyes
Then you smile at me
These all remain in me
My memories of you

We always went back to that trip
It became our celebration
Our tradition until the end
Full of love and happiness

But then, the cold dawned on us
The death of us had been destined
With no choice, you had to leave
Your parting bore questions and pain

And I can only cling to the day we met…

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
Why do I have to let you go
Why do I have to move on
I only want to remember
And just cling to that first day
‘Cause those are all I have
My memories of you

Repeat Chorus
