Selected pieces of poetry

Tomorrow

Tomorrow, when the Sun comes up in the sky

Will you be able to wake up and not cry?

To the sound of the birds singing your name in the sky

Deliver her to me, dear God, please, before I die

 

Tomorrow, when the moon rests on the sea

And when you go to sleep

Will you dream of me?

I wish you could, so you could see how much I am suffering,

without you here next to me

 

Tomorrow, when you pass me by on the sidewalk

Will you turn, smile, and go

Or will you pay no attention to a stranger you have never known

I wonder if you think of me

 

Tomorrow, when I would be admitted into a bed

When all my tears have been shed

When all my hopes and fears gave gone over into the land of the dead

Do you think that by that time you would know me enough to visit me?

 

Tomorrow lies in my heart

A twinkle, a spark, a love-rose in the pot

I will always think of you

But will you ever think of me?

I will always have you in my heart

But will you deny me the passion to be in your life?

I will always think of the day when we would pass by each other, smile at each other, perhaps even sit down and talk to each other

But would you, ever think the same of me?

 

Tomorrow lies in my heart

The past is forgotten, it's in the dark

The present I hold in my hands

The hope of meeting you, and to love you, and that you would understand

This is the truth, which I hold

The life within me

Isn't it Time (for Peace to Show)

I want to be

(Able to know)

 

I want to be able

(To fight away the tears)

 

Isn't it time

(For peace to show?)

 

To let the magic in

(After all these blue years)

 

I've been in and out a million times

And every time is worse than the second

And I have come to realize

That life doesn't matter on the hows or whens

 

People feel the truth

But they go on with the lies

So I pray in solitude

But my worries burst out in flames: tell me why?

 

Why it is the world turns around?

Why is it the passion never dies?

Why is it that I'm still alive?

What's the answer and to what extent?

I want to be

(Able to know)

 

I want to be able

(To fight away the tears)

 

Isn't it time

(For peace to show?)

 

To let the magic in

(After all these blue years)

 

I shake away in my bones

Every time I remember the feeling

And every time I try to forget how it feels

It just comes back like a boomerang

 

So now I'm still alone

After so many years

I remember the years when I used to glow

Where's the magic- why all the fear?

 

I want to be

(Able to know)

 

I want to be able

(To fight away the tears)

Isn't it time

(For peace to show)

 

To let the magic in

(After all these blue years)

 

So I lay my head down to rest

And I remember I am not above the rest

And life for me is simply a test

 

But I break down and cry

And I shiver, tremble not knowing why

I open up my heart to my mind and they clash in the tide

 

I want to be able to know

I want to be able to fight away the tears

Isn't it time for peace to show?

To let the magic in after all these blue years?
