Qamar (Moonlight) I

The symbol of night…Life…

The one I ask and beg The Lord for…
To keep you safe…
To keep your place among the stars that brighten our lives…
A blessing to those blessed enough to lay their eyes upon your light…

Beauty that I believe must be Divine…

You breathed life back into one’s soul that has long been torn by one’s own self-scorn…
Took a form that purified me of all this blight whose source was my very core…
For so long fate had foretold how I’d end up all alone…
I was wrong…

Fate wasn’t meant to be set in stone…

My soul was saved by your light…
No words I write will ever personify your impact on my life…
How much you mean to me…
All I can do is smile…

The sound of your sweet echo will forever emanate from my soul…
I’m reading the thoughts of an angel…
But she’s real…
Your light shines on me…
You have saved me…

Perfect

Intro:
We all get the feeling…She’s the one…How do we get there? How do we realize?
She’s changed how I see the world…Life isn’t rigid.
Open yourself to others and hopefully we’ll all find that special one that makes life perfect…

Like a dream…
Rarely do we remember each detail…
But there is a gist that can’t be missed…
Unwritten list that states what makes perfect…?

Can’t be purchased or bartered for…
For the heart hardens at thoughts that threaten to cause dismay…
Yet there are no set laws that define what makes…
Just that look on one’s face gives away…
These deep feelings of love…
What makes her the one…?
To bring that special smile onto my face…?

Harken back to that unwritten list which now ceases to exist…
As she’s crossed those very lines I took ages to write..
All within my mind, thoughts surmise that she is my light…
She is the shine I hope to see each day I wake…
She is the reason for why I live…

Sweet Echo

I’ve never felt a sound so sweet…
A sound so complete…
For a soul so in need of a reason to be…
These past few weeks have felt heavenly…
Perhaps I see too much into these moments in time…

Yet each time I hear your sweet voice, I rejoice…
Things are ok…
For so long my own voice had been devoid of any real speech.
I felt that an early end was meant for me…
Why even breathe…?
I had no real breath…
Hollow thoughts with no depth lead me to expect eternal worthlessnes…
The only sounds around were those that bound me to sorrow…

What went wrong…?
I couldn’t explain…
But then one day, things had changed…
Much like the winds which swiftly turn and sweep across the plains…
All that I had yearned for came to me through you…
You have been imbued with a divine essence
Your mere presence accentuates who I am…
Your heavenly voice validates the power of my pen…

You are…
A person who I can depend on until the very end…
A whisper in the dark…
A voice that stands apart and soothes me like a cool breeze…
A sweet sensation that my whole body feels…
As the rhythm of your voice leads me to hope…
That I will no longer be alone…
You are the beat of my heart…
You are my Sweet Echo…

Luminaries

“Luminaries”

Spirits…
People…
Bodies…
Lights…

The power of light…
Shining through all the darkness…

Buried barely beneath the fairy tales…
Ships sail through “gale force” winds with only one vision…
Spread light to all places of blight…
Rarely ever is a course defined…But the inner light inside guides the mind…

Hidden between the lines of history were these visionaries…
The luminaries…
The shunned ones who saw society had done wrong…
And tried to remedy the flaws…
Made enemies with the “pawns”…
Got caust for the righteous cause…
Distraught over the loss of the common clause that states all life is precious…
However insipid beliefs breed grief all too readily…
When you’re told not to hope or dream…
It takes great courage to break through this darkness…
Prove you’re just as important being as any other could be…
