Chase away the dark clouds that hover,
bring back the warmth that I crave,
you’re the sun that beats back the gloom,
the beautiful morning that I want to wake up to.
Wrap me in your arms, catch the tears that fall,
heal my aching heart, and I’ll be yours forevermore.
Bring back the smile that used to grace my lips,
trace it with your fingertips, let it blossom like a flower,
and drink from it your reward, the deepest kiss.

Through Your Eyes


Through your eyes I saw how pretty life can be,
even when the sun gets obscured by dark clouds,
and the rain comes down pouring hard,
it will always end like problems do
with a bit of sunshine and rainbows too.

Through your eyes I saw how darkness can easily
the mind of someone lost in love and hurt,
but then you showed me what loving hands can do
to hidden wounds and scars of long ago.

Through your eyes I saw how I can be a better version
of me,
when I thought I can go no further you were the one
who pulled me onwards.
Now it’s my turn to show you how wonderful life can
if only you took the time to stop and see the world
right here with me.

Waiting in Silence


Waiting for a bit of sunshine
to break the dark clouds hovering,
over a mind imbued in silence
while waiting in vain.

Waiting for a bit of life
to course through these cold days,
melting ice and frost
to reveal a verdant valley.

Waiting for a bit of love
to fill this empty seat,
while watching what’s left of the night,
for a more glorious morning.
