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

Truth and Dare

Why hide?
Why run in disguise?
Your heart is open wide
Your eyes unravel what’s inside

There are signal flares for the night
And the sun for the broad daylight
Not even mist or clouds can obstruct
When God sees secrets so deeply tucked

There are masks not worth wearing
Pretensions deserve some undoing
The truth can make us bleed
But the truth will set us free.

Tears and Stars

The woods stayed up
The stars hanged on
We were sitting on earth under heaven
All night long and hours past eleven

We shed some tears
To the ground they fell
To the green grass dew
With the pain we never knew

Our questions were hard to answer
Our words and voices were about to falter
You swept my dripping tears
Hushed my heart assuring you’ll be here

We were waiting for our eyes to dry
And never give up you say we’ll try
We were waiting for the stars to fall
The sun still rose on us after all

Sunset Sighs

Deep breath, long sigh
The sunset repaints the color of sky
This is what your heart longs for
A scenic view or a metaphor

Wipe off some noise of a hectic day
By a placid beach and music of waves
Just this moment the sun seems shy
But leaves a beauty as seabirds fly

End of day and birth of night
Darkness and light ramble to collide
Say goodnight to unforsaking scars
Let your heart give way to the stars.
