The Distance

DownUp +2

Something about the twinkle in your eye,
Makes me lose my mind, no lie.
Please believe me, I’m trying my all.
I really don’t want the best of us to fall.
You’re worth every battle, war, and the stars.
I just want you for myself, in jars.
Yes, I’m hesitant and I can’t lie.
Me and you can do it though, easy as pie.
Babe, no matter what the distance, one rule only,
We will stay strong, and we will stay holy.
What I’m trying to say is I like you.
We can conquer the distance, and that is true.
No matter how far, don’t lose all this hype,
I Promise, almost all night we will Skype.

One Flesh

DownUp +4

Baby, we are one flesh,
Truly, we are man and wife;
Baby, we are one flesh,
The best ministry in my life.

I am so captivated by your love,
Baptized in the sea of God’s favor;
Each morning to see who I dreamed of,
Beside me, answers my every prayer.

Let me rejoice in you, your worth,
Because you are my sacred crown;
You are my blessing here on earth,
Dubbed in new passion for holy ground.

Baby, we are one flesh,
Truly, we are man and wife;
Baby, we are one flesh,
The best ministry in my life.

No wealth nor home can compare
To the value of my love for you,
Which goes beyond measure so rare,
After all we have been through.

Finding a wife would be drastic,
But I have what is called a helpmate,
And the fulfillment feels fantastic,
God’s joint us where nobody can separate.

Baby, we are one flesh,
Truly, we are man and wife;
Baby, we are one flesh,
The best ministry in my life.

Baby, we are indeed..
One flesh.

I Remember

DownUp 0

I remember something. I remember someone, some place, somewhere.
I remember a place in my mind. In the minds of others just like me.
A special place that is for me, and others like me.
I remember a life i can never have.
A life i built throughout my mind.
Where i was born, raised, and grew.
With friends that I never left, and never left me.
With a family that wasn’t built on hate and frustration.
With a happiness that wasn’t on a computer screen made of thousands of pixels.
That’s what i remember.

I remember a beautiful place.
A place where cherry blossoms lined the streets.
Letting their pink beauty shine each year, not hiding it from anyone.
A place where everyone loved, and nobody hated.
Because only the unloved hate.
A place where the summers were warm, and love fluttered like those cherry blossoms.
A place where the winters were cold, and colorless snow brought joy to the vibrant hearts of children.
A place where the spring brought new growth, and shed its past year behind.
A special place.

In this place lived people.
A people that loved one another.
Accepted one another.
People that loved and accepted everyone.
Accepted and loved them for their past, present, and future.
Because that is love.
These people loved where they lived.
They loved the beauties that were given unto them.
They embraced these beauties with open arms, and joyous hearts.

They grew a happiness there.
A happiness that bore fruit year round.
It never wilted, and never rotted.
This happiness was with each other.
It was with what was given to them.

This place, with these people they lived with.
They found joy in every small hole of their lives.
This is where i was born.
This is where i lived.
With my mother and father.
with my brothers.
With my little sister that was never born.

I grew up here.
With friends, and friends of friends.
I never left them, and they never left me.
We shared our lives and dreams throughout the summer.
And our thought and hearts in the winter.

I found love in this place, and it found me.
This love that never scurried away, or was out of reach.
This love was there to be given to me, and for me to give.
We were happy.
Because we had no reason to be otherwise.

But this place.
This place that i remember.
It’s a place long forgotten.
A life that was created.
But never lived.
It’s gone.
But is still here.
Here to haunt me.
A life I remember.
A life i remember i never had.
And it tears me apart everyday remembering that life.
The life i can never have.

But this life.
Though it was not meant for me.
Is meant for others.
This life without hate and sorrow.
This life without heartbreak and torn promises.
This life that lived in me, can be lived in.
Not by me though.

The body

DownUp -1

I have 2 legs that will always stand tall
I have 2 arms that will always hold you tight
I have 2 eyes that will watch over you
I have 10 fingers but one will never truly belong to me
I have 1 stomach but it is full of butterflies
I have a heart but not the one in my chest that belongs to you
I have only one mind but you’re the only thing in it
I have only 1 body but it will be the one to protect you when you need it
I may only be one man but I’ll be the only man you need

What is Life?

DownUp +2

What do we live each day for?
The meaning of life is different, sure.
Especially for ones who believe they’re alone.
But I’m always here for you, just text the phone.
Keep your head up and the true love will come.
Don’t rush love and quit letting your heart roam.
A boyfriend or girlfriend doesn’t represent happiness.
Because it comes within and only you know best.
Remember that love also comes from us all
Enjoy your life, stay focused, and stand all.
I’m going to ask you again, and please be sure,
What do we live each day for?

Life is One

DownUp +4

Life is one,
Be happy with everyone.
Life is one,
Don’t waste it for anyone.
Life is one,
Be with the person you love.
Life is one,
Don’t cry for anyone.
Before worrying for anything,
Just think, life is only one.

New Resolution

DownUp +2

Sitting on this wooden plattform,
Since a dusk to dawn.
Under the boughs of a Gulmohar tree,
Above the speeding river flowing free.
Watching the radiant sunrise,
and sunset, onset of romantic surprise.
I wasn’t deliquent of the mistakes I did,
Niether was I happy, nor excited.
Was taken away by the breeze’s beauty,
by the twitter of birds in gaiety.
My hair tickling me here and there,
and I threw a stone into the river bare.
It had depth, depth like the pain in my heart.
and pace as that of the increasing sorrows hard.
The tree was a comfort and support,
and helped me forget that I was hurt.
The sunset took away with it my desire,
of leaving the world in agony like fire.
But the sunrise gave me hope,
that my life had more value than a soap.
I’m glad to be here alone,
even if no one loves, but atleast no one will throw a stone.
Within nature’s arms I’m lively and fresh,
and the rays give a glitter to my flesh.
Yesterday’s tears fell in the river,
But now only happiness, and no more tears..
