how long would this feeling lasts
to be in love with you despite of your past
when will the sky be free of darkened carpets of clouds
and be deaf from the hurting voices of the crowds
hot and boiling heads gathered
to try knocking out your priceless credence
t’was me among the few thousands scattered
who have valued your dear precious presence
the only shining star up in the heavens
that sends its light in the darkest of night
i thanked the gods for giving me these eyes
that has chosen the best gift i longed tonight
it’s you who came in the split of the moment
that time has for awhile stopped and looked
i was about to raise the flag of white, i was silent
but you came there brilliantly, i was hooked
how long would our feelings last
as we smiled and loved there’s nothing to fix
kisses will still be warm as the story happens so fast
together forever, till we aged a hundred and six…

golden leaves never fly high
they fall and blown to a distance
the greens still holding on by
add color to life of innocent ones

yellowed foliage for a time they cling
dark reds and lights persist survival of life
summer, winter, autumn, and spring
seasons end, come and go, like man and wife

life changes as we grow old
but we can’t stop pursuing our dreams
the thick snow on the roof of my home
doesn’t mean i manufacture ice creams…

i am here
carried by my thoughts
reacting to a dream

i am there
dragged by my hope
talking back to an aim

here, there and everywhere
i have to start somewhere
now, later or never

up, i’ll find some stairs to the heavens,
or build a highway to the stars
can’t make it

if there’s no beginning…

Success…

i gathered skills
to color my skin
i exerted efforts
to know where to begin

i bathed in the sun
to bake some dirt
i froze in the dawn
to immerse into the hurt

tears and sweat have mixed
as they spilled out from skin
energy and time
ran along my will

thoughts of survival
came spinning on the wheel
busy fingers on the weave
molding a body of steel

“i can do it”
i kept reminding me
searching for the brightest star
the one that’s holding the key

i have reached the core
the heart of the night
the success i was aiming for
was won ’cause i gave the battle a fight…

i let go with your own mistakes

a grinning smile is all that it takes

your being mad always pass me by

there’s no use to fight not even a try

you’ve thrown me plates and you’ve missed

but I’ve thrown you back a flying kiss

don’t know why i can’t do a revenge

hugging you is all that i can avenge

hurting me seems to be forever

but it makes my love grow stronger

why this feeling doesn’t get furious

to be mad at you the reasons are obvious

i can’t have anybody and set you free

the two of us anytime will be three…
