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.

Home

By your side on a green and grassy
Tall old trees under a sky cloudy
Unmoved by time as it goes slowly
Sudden tears and raindrops fell as if stormy

By your side down a tender shade
Sang you a song with a familiar tune laid
It felt like home and won’t let your heart fade
‘Cause here with you memories are made

Life is a Puzzle

Life is a puzzle
You wonder and dazzle
To the grave from cradle
Trapped in a maze we journey and wrestle

Life is full of questions
Questions more than convictions
Will I ever solve this mystery?
Gathering up pieces from an allegory

Life is an enigma
Lines and scripts or some iffy drama
I’ve gotta ask God what these all mean
Or shall we just wake up from this awry dream?

Years

Gray and blurs
Shades that turn
Freckles and wrinkles
Aging is undeniable
Our years are unfathomable

Lonesomeness to togetherness
Let my selfishness so regress
Our hands shall meet
Pact is sweet
Our hearts are unwilling to show retreat

Grow weary and old
Eclipsing eyes yet bold
Letting scars turn into gold
Even ‘til memories can’t be recalled
Us together, was it foretold?
