I am just a wandering soul looking for the promised bliss of love.

I know I should have listened well

To the earnest bidding of friends—

When in love, you, by chance, fall

Never ever give your all

Keep something to yourself

To cushion you should you ever slip.

Yet, I thought this was a friendly jest

Simply spoken in playful mirth—

For I was taught not so long ago

When in love, let your heart go

Don’t hold back, just give your all

If need be, to bare your soul.

So when I gazed at her, a beauty divine

Stood still the hands of time—

She wove a magic I could not quell

Enchanted, I was under her spell

I knew it right then and there

Anything I’d do if only to have her.

I did what I could to worship her

Even my life, keen I was to offer—

Alas! Things were not what I hoped to be

She had her eyes fixed not on me

To someone else her heart was meant

Such misfortune I was unkindly dealt.

Now, I weep in a mire of grief

My spirit is broken, fraught with distress

Truly, I should have kept my friends’ counsel—

When in love, step back a little

Learn to keep something to yourself

To help you up should you ever slip.


,

Ever since you’ve captured my heart

Never have I thought from you I’d be apart

You have become my sun above

My wellspring of constant love

You’ve shown me the way to paradise

Hand in hand, we’ve soared the heaven’s heights

You’ve brought me nothing but pure bliss

My life you’ve granted a new lease

Doubtless, dearest, because of you

My world’s been changed so completely true

Where clouds once roamed o’er my horizon

Light has since so brightly shone

What more could I possibly ask this world

When in you, I’ve found what I need to behold

Fame and fortune, I may not possess

But my wealth goes beyond earthly riches

How then could I live my life

If you’re not by my side

What’s there to look forward to

When all would be an empty morrow

Leave me not, my angel, I beseech

Here I am, down on my knees

I’d rather will this breath be my last

Than to tread once more my hollowed past


DREAM
When I dreamt of you last night
A dream so vivid, so real-life
A single prayer I addressed to God--
I asked Him to never awaken me
To let me sleep for all eternity
You see, my dearest, only in my dream
Am I able to bridge the deep ravine
The chasm wide that keeps us apart---
Only in my dream do I rise a hero
A knight in shining armor to rescue you
But fleeting moment a dream is
A burst of flame soon extinguished
Just a dying ember to mark its place--
So does a dream do not for long survive
Yet, it is only where I can cling on to your love

 

Don’t worry, I can read the sign

I know what is in your mind

You need not even say a word or two

Your silence speaks so pure and true

 

I need not be a sage or a wizard

To feel the beatings of your heart

Though you try hard to conceal it

The change within, you just can’t shield

 

I should have seen it coming

The fire in you is slowly ebbing

No longer does love resound

No longer does passion in you abound

 

What am I to do now, my dear?

I’ve lived my life with no other

How can I face tomorrow

Without you to help me through?

 

, , ,

 

It pains me now to realize

Losing you is one thing I have to agonize--

Over time, I thought, the bitter ache would go

Verily, so wrong have I truly been, I know.

 

Every passing day finds me still

Yearning for the days when we were together--

Only if I could turn back the hands of time

Undo the things that led us to what we’ve become.

 

Surely, I have no one to blame but myself

Took you all those times for granted--

I wish I did show you more of my affection

Let my true feeling go and not have kept it in my bosom.

 

Longing and praying still I do for that day to come

Love will guide us again to each other’s arms--

Endure the misery though I may have for the moment

Always hopeful love will dawn the next time around.

Honey, I cannot for even a moment hide No matter what I do, it continues to abide Each day that passes only worsens the grief I am torn and tattered, my life is adrift To all the gods I have prayed for deliverance Entreat them I did to spare me this sufferance My ardent pleas have but fallen unheeded The hurting and the pain still throb unabated How I wish I had never tempted fate My heart’s bidding I should have resisted For all along the dire truth I have known I really could never call you my own But what could a mere mortal do When faced with a beauty such as you? Truth is, I was completely mesmerized When on you I first laid my eyes So, I gambled, risking on the chance Hoping the die would to my favor dance But alas, the end has long ago been foretold Never will you be mine for eternity to behold Upon my shoulder the burden is now lodged Weighing so heavily, I want to shout aloud To rail at the world for this painful loss Yet, I should be man enough to bear the cross
Don’t worry, I can read the sign I know what is in your mind You need not even say a word or two Your silence speaks so pure and true I need not be a sage or a wizard To feel the beatings of your heart Hard though you try to conceal it The change within, you just can’t shield I should have seen it coming The fire in you is slowly ebbing No longer does love resound No longer does passion in you abound What am I to do now, my dear? I’ve lived my life with no other How can I face tomorrow Without you to help me through?
When the new light breaks at dawn I want to face the morning with you Your presence gives me hope The courage to see all things through And when the darkness sets in I find comfort in your embrace You calm my wearied soul By your sweet and gentle grace You mean a lot to me More than gold or diamond My life would be empty and hollow Without your loving hand I try to hold on Keeping you close to me Never wanting you to leave Praying you’d stay for eternity But as all things are bound to end So does joy seem to bear its own pain Now, you wish to bid goodbye And leave me alone in the rain I thought we promised each other To last until forever Why the sudden change in you After all the things we did share What should I do to make you stay And not forsake what we’ve got You should realize by now Letting you go is simply hard Written by bernard Submitted by bernard Modified by bernard

Deep is the sorrow that assails him
Gloom and sadness now reign supreme
Anguish and pain so overwhelming
Such is the hurting within.

Time was when he felt complete
Alone in his world, free-spirited
Not a moment was spent in dreadful misery
Everything was in blissful harmony.

Then he met this girl so fine
Unparalleled beauty had she to shine
None to her could compare but diamond
Indeed, she was God’s perfect creation.

So taken was the man by the vision of her
Close to his heart he held her there
He felt she was the answer true
To all the prayers to heaven he threw.

Inseparable souls they did become
Ecstasy throve and blossomed
It seemed their love was meant to last
Survive it would beyond the dust.

Alas, the hand of fate could not be swayed
Struck it did and none was spared
The maiden did suffer dire
Slowly ebbed in her the fire.

All to himself the man is again
Yet, life has in his soul been drained
For gone is his reason for being—
Without her, what’s the sense in living?

Why does it grieve me so much
To see you go and leave?
Didn’t I cause you only pain
And made your life a burden?

Why do tears run down my cheeks
As you walk away from me?
Shouldn’t I be man enough to admit
I’ve taken you all this time for granted?

Why does my heart ache so longingly
For you to come back this way?
Wouldn’t it be better then for me
To live my life so free?

I guess I’d been wrong all along
When I told you that rainy night—
You meant nothing to me
Just a woman I once took fancy.

Yes, I now realize the plainest truth
I do love you deep in my heart;
But it’s too late for you’re gone
Into somebody else’s arms.

Never could I imagine this thing to be: Is it fate playing its tricks on me? Or is there really something more? Could this be God's wondrous miracle An answer to a fervent prayer? I always saw you from afar, Kept my distance, never wanting to tempt the fire, It was enough for me to glance at your sweet smile: Perhaps, I was simply afraid of reaching out Only to be spurned and cast aside. Yet, in one fleeting moment (was it just a dream?) You showed me how wrong I have really been; You took my hands, and gave me a glimpse of your heart— Filled me with the courage to face tomorrow, And taught me how to cope with my sorrow. If I had my way, and truly I do, How I prayed that moment would never be through— To go on and on beyond our lifetime, Even to last for all eternity, Such a wistful thinking, though it may be. Alas! Some things could not by our design transpire, Much as we want to, life unravels its own desire-- Hapless mortals are we, unable to resist, Try as we might to turn the tide of destiny We are bound and fated, no longer free. Thus, it pains me deeply to face the truth, My love for you is bound to naught; For, none can change the way it is, Your heart has been taken, And loving you, I know, is forbidden. Thank you still for sharing the moment, I will hold it close, now and hence, Time shall pass and the world shall turn; And death shall one day come and wrest my life Yet, our moment shall not from my spirit depart!
