Letter To A Friend

I’m here to listen to your woes each time you cry
You tell me you love him, that I cannot deny
But he doesn’t see your worth as much as I do
This is for the love, unrequited yet it’s true

You know, it’s hard to pretend, for me to carry on
When I’m only a friend, a shoulder to lean on
But no matter what, I’ll never ever leave you
This is for the love that is always here for you

Still, I thank you, love, for the gift of your friendship
‎Seeing you happy with him takes away my hardship
Yet somehow, I hope for a future of me and you
This is for the love, hoping someday you’ll feel it, too

I Can No Longer Write

I can no longer write about your smile
And share your happiness with everyone
I feel this will go on and on for a while
Maybe this is the end and soon I’m done

I can no longer write about my thoughts
And express the ideas in my head
Whatever this is, I battled and I fought
But this fiend owned me, had me defeated

I can no longer write about anything
And play with words to build a masterpiece
It’s slowly consuming my everything
But a least leave hope so I can be at peace

Grief

A mist is enveloping this morning
The road seems narrow and never ending
I feel the breeze, the chill is hitting my face
How I long for the warmth of your embrace

The sun is still in hiding, it’s so dark
Not even a bit of light can make its mark
But this path I have no choice but to take
Burdened with grief that I can no longer fake

The starless, pitch black night is approaching
And I don’t even know where I’m going
But I will keep walking to find answers
Brave this journey while saying my prayers

I Will Miss You

I will miss the way you smile at me
When you wake up and you find me
Then I will miss preparing your milk
Then washing your skin that feels like silk
I will miss our daily morning strolls
When you nap and I ‘catch them all’
I will miss having lunch with you
And the cute ways you give your cue
Asking for more food or water
Then pout lips, throw tantrums whenever
I will miss washing your hands, your face
Then pick you up, lock you in embrace
I will miss our afternoon nothings
When we watch shows and play with things
I will miss when you nap on my lap
And still snooze when it’s not enough
I will miss taking selfies with you
Touching your hair, just staring at you
I will miss kissing you every time
Holding and hugging you anytime
I will even miss changing your nappies
To make you comfortable and happy
I will miss singing songs to you
How you laugh in little things I do
There are more things that I will miss
But please always remember this
I love you always and forever
Even if we are not together

Break In My Monotony (Part 2)

You are the break in this endless monotony
You pull me out from the pit of melancholy
You exudes innocence and geniune happiness
You are the beauty in this confusing mess

When I am with you, everything is magic
Even the worries and hardships are majestic
When I am with you, all I see is rainbow
As you make the loads lighter with your radiant glow

‎So thank you for coming into my wild world
Thank you for your warmth in this blistering cold
You change my truth, my life in an amazing way
So I promise to love you each and every day

Break In My Monotony (Part 1)

Wake up, work, go home and repeat
I am exhausted, I am beat
Everyday, I’m facing defeat
This monotony is winning it

So I’m in autopilot each day
Everything’s bleak, everything’s gray
And I can’t seem to find my way
I don’t know how to get through the day

Then in this dullness, I find you
You bring back the colours and hue
And as you wash away my blues
I’m at peace and feel a love that’s true

Haunted

It’s haunting every piece of me
I ran looking for a sanctuary
I hid but it always finds me
No escape from this catastrophe

It wants to control my mind, my soul
I refused, neglecting the call
A phantom commanding my whole
I am cornered to take the fall

Then it devours me, draining my core
Resist or surrender – I am torn
But it persists, asking for more
Yet I feel at peace, I am reborn
