HOPE…used and misunderstood? or just out of reality others consider them as a state of mind unexpressed a set back from the pain that is in search of a way out or just a feeling that is in severe longing…
HOPE…a wish-deprived of truth? or just being unknown others consider it fulfillment yet undone and unseen behind the unconsciousness of the mind, it lies or just at its rest, motionless there waiting
HOPE…can be a dream in a fatality? or just out of the possibility others consider them as what minds reap in thoughts a memory left untouched by a conviction of consciousness or just a mere perception of one’s own expectations
HOPE…is never fully understood yet loved by all others clenched tight on it and never let go to whatever tomorrow will be, their heart keeps holding on or seeing them as the only reason to live by life
this is HOPE to whatever it brings to a soul to whatever it brings to everyone’s heart it makes them believe…it makes them live HOPE TILL HOPE IS GONE AND HOPE TO HOPE AGAIN
the beauty of the song no one can hear the rhythm of loves sweet melody so dear the song sang in a silent lullaby ever rare as rhymes flow like waters deep and clear
let the heart that’s long been drowned in tears withstand the ghastly roaring thunder of fears never shivering knees to buckle in struggles standing strong to walk with living puzzles
around we go in a destined journey without end with bruises and wounds, only time can mend burdened sorrows, prayer to heaven shall send head bowed humbly in shuddered knees to bend
the howling in the darkened night stunting the moon to rise and shine along the shore of the living dune the whirling winds keep on and on with dust of time a mirror of the universe in sparkling stars that mime
the speck of dust that made a being whole again a heart within that meddle with torment and pain in this imperfect world, forbidden soul shall remain beholding the chant of silent lullaby in a sad refrain
upon my feet, before this body laid on the ground may the earthen glory of a silent song be found to sing for just even once, the song of silent sound beneath the unseen shadow entwined and bound
soon time that angels shall kinder a heavenly light to warm my heart and soul with magnificent delight the unmeasured and the unconditional love in sight visions the glorious mystical divinity of Gods’ might
if i shall let thine eyes fall asleep in deep slumber the silent lullaby be sent in my hearts chamber my blood in my veins to flow and so remember that my song will forever be in silence to ponder
upon the shimmering ripples of every waters flow when the breeze of the cold wind felt in its blow look at me in the skies with all glitters and glow hear the rhythms of my angels’ song softly and slow
1 speak not, for my tongue is numbed with lips that are closed my words in my throat, holding back a breath indisposed thoughts pondering, finding lost words to shout my pains only the dust of time from the past left a choice without refrains 2 whirling around in my own space that holds me still my body hollowed with so much emptiness, i need to fill i gather the pieces of my shattered moments to mold back again wishing to burn within the silence of my lingering pain 3 like the ocean in its deepest, my soul breathes out a distant sigh from the freezing cold waters, teardrops mounted upon the sky. unto the shoulder of the dark clouds, i rendered my burden when it rains once again, let me drench from tears of heaven. 4 the shivering cold i feel brings me back the memories, i have you beside me, warmed by your arms, to tell my stories i open my lips for a little smile, coz it’s you that i see awakened from a wink of my eyes, there was no one but me 5 how i wish to be seeing you from the places that surround me where we giggle and laugh, fumble and feeble with glee it is always you, the soul of my soul my mysterious glory let me be a part of you though we travel in all of life’s misery 6 with you is the joy i behold without regrets and without compare all the truth and lies in this earthen imperfection i dare slumber and drunk with my brokenness i forebear falling found myself lost and alone, it is you that i am calling 7 keep filling myself with nothing, but only the thoughts of you broken pieces to keep me whole again from that shattered hue i remained in the silence of my lingering pain and speak no more till i hold you back to stay within my embrace forevermore 8 hear me, dear, the sigh of my endearing whispers of pain tears never stop like the rains tapping my windowpane burying me deep away from my own self and my own sanity far far away that brings me out and beyond eternity 9 lost …lost into the darkened deep, till nothin of me can be found no footprints nor my ashes from every traces of the ground i am nothing now but the wind touching your skin touching your lips, with that alluring smile of a silly grin
