amidst the vision of thoughts conceived and concealed skipping away the time of paranoia bewildered merging reality from illusion and delusion converging slopes of imagination infusion
……should the sun sets to rise again ……….save this heart to feel the pain …………..reveal no words for a sad refrain ……………….holding only for souls enchain
from darkened moon a shadow cast, only darkness to last where even the fiery skies feared tale of lies in distance site sights of emptiness and loneliness unleashed the unearthed to unveil only for the truth to prevail
from the deafening echoes shattered now the sound of silence be heard ’twas all of nothingness and emptiness only the hues of darkened brightness
groped through the way with eyes opened holding only to hope with a heart to mend with dreams of a joyous day along the way whispering hearts that tell tales and stay
within the sound of silence the best melody humming the tune of the heart in serenity in silence felt the home to dwell in its depth where spirit dared to meddle without death
in the darkness that is hovering all around only the stars glittering far beyond is found on this night we shared, never an empty sky our souls’ silent calling of home in heavens high
the chill from the freezing wind that keeps blowing a million eyes of the watchful stars that are daunting the whispers of the breeze seemed to be wailing the only sound heard silently in the core of my being

here i am, among the perfection of wonders the magical creation of nature that forever lingers beauty was there laid to admire with adoring eyes flowers bloom gracefully with fluttering butterflies
here i am, to breathe the refreshing air today never knowing if tomorrow i could still stay be a child… roam around, dance and play enjoy the warm embrace of the sun all day
while the glittering horizon awaits far beyond to set my footprints on its earthen sand will there be another beauty that’s waiting for me? all that is more than the wonders i now see
this must be a haven of time in endlessness where everything stops only for a new beginning a reality of perfection and imperfection in countlessness beyond the yellow haze, the circle of life’s true meaning
through the years we have it all even in times when we stumble and fall we hold on so close to each other together created a wonderland of dreams to linger in each time all for the heart to ponder
we have gathered it all in the name of love it is of a divine blessing showered from above counted endlessly from time to time in eternity the glory that adorns our heart in times infinity the pureness of body and spirit in all sincerity
these are all that matters most to treasure the unconditional love limitless without measure only we can sing our song in rhymes forevermore even a floating from the deepest into my shore and to every footstep leading to your hearts’ door
the virtue of heart. mind, body, and soul combined holding on to forever leaving the pain of past behind the joy of sharing the passion of life to live today from within a promise that would never fade away
we took the chance in minutes and time together contemplate the destiny that brings all the wonder in every smile on the lips as the soul winks a second felt the warmth of an embrace just holding your hand
all through the years a vow…a promise we will give for the love to be there with us for as long as we live with the heart to understand and always will forgive whatever it may cost we will stand and shall never leave
let us hold the vow…a promise till our last breath till time with us shall forever fail to lay on life finding death as the earthen glory never exists in the world of immortality but love can always be through space and times infinity
with an open arm, like wings soaring upon the sky clothed with warmth within from the shining sun beneath the wings, winds among the flowers bloom as clouds adored the beauty from heavens high rendezvous remembered when spring is gone spring in wings embracing the earthen bosom
let the moistened ground bring forth a new life from the winter’s cold unfreezing tow away the grief melting tears of snow flown into deep ripples rife drowned, slipping through thoughts and sighs of disbelief beholding on to sight the new horizon far beyond destined journey among flowers and rainbows so grand
over the mountains on the ranges of flowery fields hovering, wings swiftly cover the praiseworthy view playfully gliding through the petals velvety dew the bounty of spring fragrance as gathered and yields commune the glory of life in a joyous shower it brings unto eternal creation in the certainty of spring in wings
tears from heaven, in drizzles, were send
upon the clouds, among the rainbows end
floating soul-soaked, dripping, and wet
under the rain standing still with a mindset
to walk across the storm in gusty wind
in barefoot with all the bloody mud stained
in broken wings flew to where clouds may go
swiftly and all along… did blindly follow
drenching from the pouring rain that never stops
lost thyself and lost a heart, the weary body drops
a pleading heartbeat cried like a roaring thunder
visions and thoughts wander to seek and ponder
through bright lightning that strikes, a way was found
pavement where soul silently creep, without a sound
wished to find strength and the chance to stand tall
body weakened on buckled knees shall never fall
all through, upon the rainbow’s end, I sought
the pain of joy found on a pot of gold it brought
beholding the soul dripping, drenching, stern and still
on dark clouds of stormy rain, a heart learns to heal.
