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 Darkness

The moon is full, it is shining
A feast, a celebration of life
I am in awe, it’s enlightening
As the night washes away the strife

As I look up, my soul rejoices
I see the stars engulf the black skies
I feel the evening’s warmth caresses
But it’s missing a pure sacrifice

My shadow dances with the moonlight
In anticipation of greatness
And as the light fades into the night
‎I will be one with the darkness

Writing Struggle

It’s not that I don’t have any inspiration
But I am always left with so much distraction
Left and right, up and down, all I see is confusion
Look around and I can’t find my concentration

Maybe I’m stuck with no more creativity
My mind wanders but it’s the same activity
I try to focus but I’m hit with anxiety
‎More of this and it will be my fallibility

And it’s becoming the epitome of puzzles
I try hard but I still don’t know how to tackle
I guess there are some things that I cannot handle
Just have to accept this is an endless struggle

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

Where Are You?

It gets harder each day
As I try to find my way
I have been everywhere
But I can’t find you there

I’m not myself anymore
There’s a void in my core
I wonder if you’re near
So to erase my fear

Chorus:
Where are you? Where are you?
How can I go back to you?
Where are you? Where are you?
Please tell me what should I do

I miss you terribly
Why did you just leave me?
‎Let’s become one again
Return to love once again

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
Oh… I need to be strong
To you is where I belong
I know we’ll be together
Just have faith in forever
But I’m now losing me
So for now please tell me…

Repeat Chorus

Where are you? Where are you?
Please let’s be me and you…
