For Evermore

as the gloom glows in darkness…
a breaking dawn awaits its brightness
a ray to cast shadows behind…
and won’t let you walk on blind

twist and turns can go on rough…
with smiles and tears that go to bluff
just hold me close in your arms to sleep
never let me flow in nightmares deep

unto forever more…I want you near
with me so close, that i could not fear
allured by moments of life in a zest
a glimpse of sparkling hope was at its best

this heart has been drowned in a wrath of grief
now standing stern on its soulful belief
bearing a broken self, holding on in a grip
shouldn’t let off a shattered piece to slip

hoping to wake up in a morning by your side
with no tears from behind a smile to hide
wish to see the flowers bloom again in my day
for flowers, teary dew drop be dried away

now a new bright horizon to face once more
feel the breeze embracing swift moments to adore
upon my feet in waves that rush to kiss the shore
staying still with tender care to live for evermore
