Dreamt of dreams
Of all I desire to have.
And chased then at a time
Now I stand,
Not far from my destination,
With one dream, one desire
And one prayer
All the achievements feel null and void,
All the joy is covered with fog
And a tear is rolling around my eye.
I need you,
I want you,
Not so far from me
But so close to me
To share our lives together
I need you, I love you, I miss you.
You parted from us to soon,
And so unprepared
To see you off
Now that you are no more
We miss you
We feel the empty space
You once filled.
Now that you no more,
Will what you started be completed?
Will someone like you fill the gap?
So many questions
You’re missed not forgotten.

When I see you
When I see you
Like a drop of oil spreading around
So does my heart move,
When I see you,
That is when I remember
How I treasure you.
Like a fragile glass,
Or may be like a little bad,
That is how I hold in my arms.
So close, and so deep,
My image in your eyes,
And yours in mine
Our souls meet.
I could stare at you all day long,
Those eyes, so white and bright
That smile, so wide and sincere
The cute dimples
I cherish your innocence.
Many things between us,
When I see you.

We long to fall in love, hold on to it as we enjoy every moment as it unfolds in our lives. We long to be loved and love as it’s a desire the creator put in our hearts.
However they are moments when we close the door to love, with a sharp pain in our hearts that it brought us in its last visit. And just as you say Good bye, Love knocks again on your door.
You may sit on the floor with you back on leaning on the door and cry, due to the fear you have in your heart. You may wonder, should I open the door, should I let my heart to this love again, what about its pain?
Truth be told, no one can say, they wont hurt you and you can’t promise the same either, something may go wrong, something will make you cry at some point… but amidst love… there is something that will make you smile, laugh and make you feel lighter.
That is what you will cherish, but you will never know unless you open the door to love.
For the last two weeks I have been wondering; how would this planet be if stopped complaining and did something about the things we believe are ‘not fair’ as we call them?
Like if each one of us opened a door to the homeless or to someone else’s dreams, or provided a meal to the hungry paint that picture with me and see a changed and great planet.
But NO, we don’t do that and some other people use these same people we have failed to help to make their own dreams come true… I don’t mean to sound bitter but I always look at the street kids and I feel terrible inside of me. We have given up on helping them because we believe it’s a ‘business’. Am not saying we should invest in some ones business but can’t we do something about the street kid that is being abused?
Another area that really gets to me is how we complain about our leaders; this area has two personalities; those that believe they can do better and don’t contest, and those that sit on their opinions and complain about the results.
I just keep wondering if some of you believe you can do a better job, why don’t you come up and urge us to support you, and those that don’t vote and then you question the results… honestly I have no words for you, may be you tell me whom you expect to vote for you?
We all know what we do and how we complain at the end of the day, my only prayer is that we just stop complaining and do something on those areas we feel uncomfortable with. Let’s give a hand, take a stand to the things we believe in, make our voices heard and take lead where need be for this will make this planet a place we want it to be.
