The Traveller

I yearn to see things I have never seen,
To be places I have never been,
A sense of adventure awakens my soul,
The Adrenalin makes me whole.
I chart my course on a map of the world
Seeking no fortune or gold.
I seek a prize that few embrace,
A feeling of presence and grace.

It points me north towards Europe
Where Rome embraces me with ancient buildings,
The cobbled streets make me feel at home
And the chipped walls make me want to see more.
Venice, oh you city on stilts,
Your charm woos me so,
And London, and Paris too
Don't forget the beauties Spain has to hold.

It points me East towards Asia,
Where I have seen the great Wall in China,
Malaysia I wish conquer soon,
Thailand too.
I travel around Africa where nature is an amazing diversity
The seas, the plains and the rolling hills,
Such a beauty to behold
And even better to set my feet.

I am a traveller at heart and in deed
I find my heart yearning to go far and wide
To climb hills and mountains
To embrace cultu…

Angel Eyes

You look across and you smile,
You have no idea I've been staring for a while,
You have no idea what I see when I look,
Yet to me you're an open book,
I smile back to conceal my desires,
And the fact that in me you light raging fires,
Then I see the twinkle in your eyes,
In your angel eyes.

Never let you go

I held on to the thought of you,
Even though I knew I'd long lost you
I was afraid that if I let go
I'd lose so much more
I'd lose a part of me
A part I couldn't let free,
I'd lose a glimmer of the future,
And become a desolate creature.

I knew this day would come,
When I'd have to loose your arm,
But I was never prepared,
Truth, I was scared,
Now that it is upon me my fears are confirmed,
My feelings for you, in pain reaffirmed,
I wish you happiness and love
I wish you precious gifts from above.

I'm surprised by the tear that rolls down my face,
I try not give it space,
For I need to be better for you
Perhaps for me too.
You will never know how much you mean to me,
Stronger than any love could be,
I know I lost you long ago,
Sadly I can never let you go.

You've been untrue

You lie next to me and I know you've been untrue,
Sleep won't come as I ponder what to do,
I've given my life and my all to you,
Yet somehow I knew.

I knew that I gave too much,
I knew that I loved too much,
I knew that I believed too much,
I knew you never loved as much.

Yet I thew it to the back of my mind,
Hoping it was a feeling I wouldn't find,
I looked for thoughts of every other kind,
And hoped that love would be our bind.

I ransomed my future on you,
To you, I was true,
My anger tells me what to do,
Lord guide me to see this through.

Not the man I used to be

I am not the man I used to be,
In my eyes I am free,
My eyes have been opened
My instincts have been sharpened,
I've seen the other side
Beyond the chasm and great divide,
I've learned new ways
And seen better days.

Do you take your life and hand it to another man,
Believing that he has a plan,
A plan never shared with you,
Yes you believe him to be true,
A man who never shares with you a word,
It rings to me absurd,
I choose to be the custodian of my dreams,
A better bet it seems.

Ask him to speak and say here I am,
Not through intermediaries from another realm
Ask him to tell you what to do,
To share with many and not few,
Ask him about your free will
And if you hold it still
I am where I need to be
Not the man u used to be.

I am a dreamer

Life teaches you to be afraid,
Like that school bully who would wait for you at the gate,
Remember him?
Every time you would open your mouth,
He would cut you down,
And the sight of him would fill you with fear,
That’s life.
Except that now, there is no teacher to protect you,
So that bully has free reign.

But like any other bully we stand up to life.
As long as we are alive we owe that to ourselves.
We show him we aren’t afraid
And we are prepared to fight for our dreams
To the bitter end if that may be required.
Let the world know that I battled the demons that filled me with fear
A great many of them
And I vanquished them on by one,
I fought for my dreams.
I am a dreamer!

My dreams are like a fragile egg that I need to nurture and protect,
I can’t let anyone or anything break it,
I need to make sure that the dreams hatch and grow
That they mature, spread their wings and fly across the world.
That means that I will do anything I have to keep them alive,
Even sacrifice…

You don't hear me

I wanted to believe,
That the unseen would, the seen relieve,
That someone somewhere looked out for me,
Fought my battles for me,
Willed me to be,
Set my being and spirit free,
But I ask how you can be
If you never hear me.

I went on my knees,
And I made many many pleas,
I said show me you’re true,
Show me that indeed you are you,
A sign was all I needed,
Each day I pleaded,
But I ask how you can be,
Because you never heard me.

I denied my body the nourishment of food,
For I had been told that for the soul, that is good,
I did and said all I could,
But you did nothing of what you said you would,
I lay and cried tears every day,
You didn’t wipe them away,
So tell me how you can be,
If you never hear me.

You took from me someone close,
But for the evil, long life to those,
So either your are unfair,
Or you’re simply not there,
You denied me everything I asked,
Crashed all that I tasked,
So convince me that you can be,
For I know you don’t hear me.
