Don’t know where I am going
Nor what plans life has for me
But one thing I know for sure
That I must go now.

Wonder what tomorrow has in store
Wonder what it will bring
I’ve had my share of pain and sorrows
And that is something I do not want

Somewhere along the way, we’ll meet
Share some jokes and laugh out loud
For we do not know where tomorrow we’ll be
Just alive and well, I hope we’ll be

Till some day, our land claims us back.

During those times when I feel so down
Your soothing voice assures me everything is okay
And you lift me up, from the depths of despair

During those thunderstorms and torrential rains
Through the raging thunder and flashes of lightning
I pull you closer to me, in a comforting embrace

During those times when I need to decide
On which path to take, I imagine what you would do
The answer appears, as magically you do

During those times when I don’t know what to write
An empty white space gaping blankly at me
I think of you, and the words just flow

During those times when I cheated on you
Pushing you away not acknowledging you are there
You force your way, back into my thoughts

During those nights when I stayed awake, thinking of you
You took me to those places I’ve never seen before
And showed me a love that is so real

I always wonder why you look at me so fondly
Even when I’ve been bad, mad, sad, glad and errant
I wonder why you never cease to love

And why you didn’t desert
Even when I proved to be so unworthy
I always wonder why you care

There is no reason why
Since there is nothing I have to give
And there is nothing that you expect

But when I need you, you are always around.
My muse.
My love.

Hurry Up!

Sixty seconds wasted
A minute is gone
The clock ticks on
A regimented march
Left, right, left

Cramming up so much
Whizzing past life
A moment wasted
A Moment gone
Hurry up, there’s no time

No time for breaks
No time to waste
No time, make haste
Let’s do it, fast
So hurry up

Slow and steady never won a race
Hurry up, there’s no time to waste
Fill up those moments between life and death
With something, don’t think, just do

Hurry up!

I am afraid!

Those little fears
Raising their sting
With their deadly venom
Leaving me numb

Those little fears
Deep down inside
As I look below
Afraid to take the plunge
Across that little stream

Those little fears
When I look into those glowing eyes
In the dark, eerie
I stand rooted
Scared to even breathe

Those little fears
As I look into the future
Perplexed and unsure
I stand still
Not daring, afraid

Those little fears
Those little doubts
Those little blocks
From somewhere deep within

Those little fears
Will cease to be
When I will
When I dare

Those little fears
It’s just games they play
in my mind.

Happily...ever after!

What are we chasing anyway?
Always in search of something elusive
Looking forward to find happiness
And delight in a tomorrow
That may or may not be

Ever chasing dreams
Trying to grab that elusive magic
And turn it into harsh reality
Ever thinking of plans of doing
While undoing the present

What are we chasing anyway?
The clock keeps ticking on and on
A constant reminder, a relentless tyrant
In rhythmic pulse almost a heartbeat
Till one day, without a warning, it will stop

Sometimes when I stop to think and wonder why
We do what we do
Is it the race to beat the clock
And endure?
Or is it the promise of living happily ever after?
A fake promise of a forever land?
