The Things I Never Had

The things I relearn, relearn
and relearn again
The lessons I could never
get in my head
come round every
so many years
hoping my brain
finally hears

For my mind is filled
with dreams and visions,
deep profound thoughts,
and spiritual inspirations
So many messages
on my blue wings
toss practical thoughts
and mundane things

The technical mechanics
the boggling unrest
the business as usual
the mainstream of life
I fear that I’ll never
have toughness or presence
The things that proletariats
live for in essence

I miss the daylight
of ordinary life
love, babies, cats, dogs,
white houses, green lawns
The things most people
cherish the most
the dinners, baseball
the great wedding toast

In my older years
will I finally get it
the basics of life
and how you
should live it
We’re all different
the therapists say
Will I finally reach
the edge of my dark days

Will I get intact
and rise to a steady life
earning money wherever,
have a family, red car,
and good friends
Getting all kinds of things
that I earn
to receive all the nice
parts of life that I yearn

This has been troublesome
I pray hard for all of this
The coming of age,
while my heart’s let down and torn
I want to have what
everyone should
Love and life
that is simple and good

I escape from myself to hide into you
I long for the freedom behind your bars
I cry for the tears of your sweet laughter
I steal beyond your generous giving
With every forgiveness I seek guiltiness
For every pain there must be a relief
When tranquility accompanies fear
Each sunrise shall be the end of a dream

For the time being what’s present is absent
Once our love was rigid now it’s elastic
Shadows appear shallowly like passing clouds
Pain screams loudly like dogs of hound

When you don’t read
My writings find no need
When you don’t listen
My letters gain no addition
When you don’t answer
I stand a lonely dancer

A shattered puzzle of thousand pieces
A well-made project without a thesis
Our lives has become a meaningless mess
We’re breathing air as a duty no more nor less
We’re using the boards we bought today
To surf on the waves coming from yesterday

When the past overtakes the moment
There must be an unfinished content
Take my hand and drag me into nowhere
To the moment we used to find love everywhere
To hear people whispering wish we are him and her
We won’t turn the page let’s write a new book
We’d keep the old style but change the look
Shall we get ourselves free again without a hook?

This raging war must find an end with a truce
I’m surrendering and taking back my troops
Lies never were meant to last against truths
My words are my truth
My feelings are my troops
You’re presence is my sole truce. . .

Be still tonight oh my soul.
This night i say!
For i know this too will pass
Even if it tarries but a while.

Be still tonight oh my soul
This night i plead!
For darkness lasts only for a while
By break of dawn I shall smile

Be still tonight oh my soul
For this night i shall rest!
Till the moon fades away
And the sun shines forth her light

My heart is heavy
My mind is busy
My head is pounding hard
All because I worry about what tomorrow may or my not be.

I toil hard under the sun
 All because I worry about what tomorrow may or may not be.

I found me friends
I lost me friends
I made few more
I lost a handful more
All because I worry about what tomorrow may or may not be.

I hope and I pray
I pray , I have faith
I sing and I praise
And I worship too
All because I know YOU own my tomorrow.
