i thought of the things i did
just hours that winked at me
leaving a memory in my bucket
i believe that it is free
sweet smiles that you’ve left
i considered them sacred
i’ve tried to recapture
the message you’ve delivered
if you mean that was love
that was intended for me
i’m glad to get hold of
your heart that’s not empty
in fascination’s world tonight
wandering in the space of time
let it be you that i’ll meet
in the deep of dark sublime

As You Grow, Child

_______________


a life seemed to float like the clouds above
with God’s grace you were a creation of love
in thy mother’s womb, asleep in the garden of Eden
you were the child lovingly made in Heaven


despite the pains that have gone through
the joys you gave were comfort though so few
you were the spring in the heat of summers
carrying you was a pride on the bold shoulders


they have crossed the deep turbulent ocean
waited for you despite the great distance

if in your life the plight will drag on
faith will inspire you to catch the early dawn


be brave, don’t be the moment’s snowflake
heartaches are there to put your future at stake
don’t let yourself be thrown overboard
prayers are your shining armor and your sword


go, find yourself while you’re young
experience reality and speak the other tongues
till the soil, learn your own personal skill
remember, the world is like a spinning wheel


your nights are as crucial as your days
judgment should be truthful and simply fair
find and express LOVE to many of mankind
the best memoirs that you’ll leave behind…

Images of you…

Sometimes i forget
the lessons of life…
my mistakes, trivial as they were
have hinted me so

Their runs somehow
were purely accidental
and i was sorry
for it has transgressed boundaries

Images of you
heading a reappearance,
like questions that were asked
divinely answered then

Sweet words, framed and raftered
the pathway that you’ve trailed
lead to a monumental spiel
of a splendored love affair

Rivers and Streams

if rivers and streams flow where you are
i’ll follow the way flood waters behave
surging with strength, it’s noise reaching far
into the sea, to be part of the rushing waves

if summers do come and dry you up
revealing the character that you manifest
rivers and streams will become empty
wilted tree crowns, bad for nature’s forests

request for rains follow as i pray
dark clouds falling as you drench my way
to the rivers and streams i have followed you
where your love resides, your home runs through

The Beggar – Entry for Eugi’s Weekly prompt (Nov. 25,2021)

by : Bacardi Gold
28/nov/2021

______________


finding himself with eyes pleading
lying everywhere with no place to go
on pavements cold as the morning snow
resting his soul living with sad memories aglow

different colors walking through him
slippers and shoes made no difference
he watched them move inside of him
no one felt what his hands were begging

he prayed hard that compassion would grow wings
to fly over and shower him not with earthly things
but LOVE is all he needs and everything will follow
to a soul like him a little kindness people will bestow

you don’t see it but he has his thoughts running
if you could hear his heart and read his mind, saying
my brain has too many tabs open” swarming his mind
could somebody close one tab by being kind?

too many questions seeking too many answers
without shelter, it’s a survival to the fittest
how is he going to pass the days in serious hunger
the beggar, a part of society’s essential fiber.

Life’s a Sea of Risks…

navigating at a certain speed
cruising fast to overtake the sun
peeping as the horizon bleeds
trying to catch up before it’s gone

like a man desiring for her love
he needs some quick response to win her heart
in the twilight of life he needs to rise above
life’s a sea of risks, chances can tear them apart…

it’s raining again
all my pillows are drenched in pain
in my bedroom, in the kitchen
my thoughts are raining in chain

bring all the clouds down
so i can see the sun again
and in the night of my hurting
i can see the moon passing
running in my dreams

just touch me
just feel my skin
and i’ll be raining again
with LOVE, with LOVE

catch me warm with your embrace
kiss my lips, make me ablaze
strip me bare and celebrate
in time the rain will fall again with LOVE…

If you won’t come…

______________________

Tonight, as I close my eyes
i’ll forget about my fears
i’ll send them to the clouds
and let the rains fall as tears

And when the morning comes
i’ll let the flowers bloom
to its brightest colors
and drive away my gloom

I’ve been missing you
for sometime my love
I will be at the entrance door
to give my heartfelt welcome kiss

But if you won’t come
to be back in my embrace
i’ll give you back the flowers
and a cup of my tears…

____________________
the meaning of being lost
in a world of fantasy
it’s not a secret anymore
’cause there’s love between you and me

i did it all before
to be in a place so heavenly
i hide it all alone
in illusions and imaginations

now i know that there’s love
in a pretending lonely heart
now i know that your heart beats mine
not in fantasy anymore

days are brighter now than ever
the light has shone on a stormy weather
now i couldn’t build the castles in the air
your love has been and always be fair …
