Chapter One

Blank page, anxious pen
All night long from six to eleven
Head is dripping as a thousand words wind
Gushing through this dreamy mind

Where should I get to start?
What is the beginning part?
A dash, bullet or question mark?
My exclamations are igniting sparks

Empty canvas, empty space
Each palette awaits their own place
We are colors in our own ways
A motion picture our footprint paints

There is a Heartbeat

there’s a heartbeat in those keys you were playing
through these walls this lovesong is reverbing
as you were sitting by the old piano
purest of love sings at its echo
this familiar tune still feels so near
a nostalgia i hold so dear

there’s a heartbeat in the keys you were playing
the highs and lows valleying and peaking
through the battles we’ve fought
you’ve always thought
where trials are audacious
life remains more melodious

Calling

Down for quite a while
Am i back up just in time?
You caught me dead sleeping
Three-fourth of my life’s been missing

‘Cause this silence made me slumber
Awakened when you called my number
Recognized you like a long lost lover
This fire you made me remember

And Oh, I gave my heart to the wind
Lost it and sought it back again
‘Cause I was down for quite a while
Am I back up just in time?

Broken Song

beating but a broken sound
rattling and mumbling words
confessions more than melancholy
sorrows and plain regrets
all i am a wretched king,
begging for indispensable mercy
committed crime beyond remedy

i reckon i’m a man of war
brave enough to face my foes
but I.. I cringe in fear
to lose the One I hold so dear
i admit i dread all consequence
dismissive now is my eloquence
in the light of You there’s no pretense

the mess i made
this guilt I bear
conquered kingdoms but grace i can’t buy
desperation is the currency
i need You so in this misery
nothing i can give
but a broken heart singing a broken song

Black and Gray

Color blue is yellow and green
Lookin’ for you somewhere in between
Hues are true when eyes are keen
Nothin’ to undo, we are kings and queens

Who you are, just plainly be
As beautiful as you in simplicity
Your greatness rests in your humanness
God must have etched your blessedness

Your rainbows burst even in black and gray
Lucid like the sun of a picturesque noonday
With that smile oh so down-to-earth
Did you know planets rejoiced on your day of birth

River Peace

River peace
Pour over my stormy seas
A thousand times more
More than my cries at this shore

River peace
Surge as you please
Let down from heaven
Flood over me twenty-four-seven

River peace
Let my laid back boat go sinking
An impetuous dive is worth taking
Risking but in you is healing

River peace
When all is done and said
Drown this weary heart and achy head
Lead me on the alleys I tread

Sleep Away (Beautiful Slumber)

Sleep in heavenly peace
Your eyes are starry as the galaxies
Lay your dreams in the land of pillows
The kiss of the sun shall come tomorrow

Sleep in heavenly peace
Your weary soul deserves some serenities
Wrap your heart up in blanket and lullabies
Bid goodbye regrets and alibis

Down your bed flows a river
Come on home to this beautiful slumber
Cast your heartaches let them drift astray
Go smooth sailing to sleep away
