To the Future


The heart if a fragile thing,
And choosing someone is not trivial,
So spend your days looking,
And don’t relent the search,
You will find some amazing people,
You will also find the jerks,
But keep in mind the future,
Where you will be with your dual-flame,
And smile at your past,
Because you will never be there again,
Take all the hurt,
And all the pain,
And just remember,
Tomorrow you can try again.

Just Give me a Hug


Just give me a hug,
Say it’ll be alright,
And stay with me through the night.
*
Tell me it gets better,
Don’t let me be bitter,
And tell me you will be mine.

Where Have you Been


Where have you been,
Where has the time gone,
And where are we going.
*
Lets not ask questions,
And just go along,
For the ride of our lives.
*
I know I shouldn’t ask,
But I don’t know where we’re going,
And I don’t want you to be gone.

Would You Change


Would you change for me?
As I would change for you.
I know it is wrong,
For me to want you too,
But I love you too much,
For you not to love me.
But I don’t want you to change for me,
So what to do?
You don’t love me,
The way I am,
So I must change for you,
With no guarantee you will love me,
But is this the right thing to do?

I Take You


I ____________ take you,
To always be,
Part of my family.
*
To love and hold,
Through night or day,
And always tell you it’s OK.
*
I give my hand,
With this ring,
To make promise of one thing.
*
From this day forth,
You will always be,
The only one who completes me.

My 1 in 7.5 Billion


You are 1 in 7.5 Billion,
The only one I want to be with day and night,
The only one I would give my life,
I would forfeit everything for you,
I would do what I have to do,
Given the way I feel,
Given the hope I hold,
Would you give the same for me?
Would you at least say yes?
Days and scenes go by,
Nights and dreams of you,
So get out of my dreams,
Tell me you want to be with me,
And hug me all night.

A Fool Just For You


Am I a fool,
To feel the way I do,
To feel this way for you,
My heart is calling out for you.
*
Was I a fool,
To think you could feel this way to,
To think you might want me,
And that your heart might call for mine.
*
Well if I’m a fool,
Then let it be know,
And let it be said,
I am a fool in love,
And I am a fool just for you.

Right Place, Wrong Time


So it would seem,
My heart would be,
In the right place,
At the wrong time.

I love you,
But you can’t love me,
And I am happy,
Although you’ll never be mine.

What makes me happy you see,
Is knowing you are in love,
Even if its not with me,
I’m happy if your happy just as it should be.

Love In Actions


Given a word,
I’ll make it a song.
Given a world,
I’ll make it a stage.
Given a day,
I’ll make it a memory.
Given a life,
I’ll make it amazing .
Given a heart,
I’ll cherish it forever.
Given a dream,
I’ll make it a reality.
And given your hand,
I’ll hold it forever and never let go.

English Teacher Tease


I would talk of curtains of blue,
And talk of clouds of rain,
Or the cold of the snow.
*
But I don’t want to give,
English teachers the pleasure,
Of deciphering my work.
*
By the poem what am I saying,
Is it I’m melancholy or,
Just trying to play around.
*
Do your higher English on this,
And try and find where I am,
When I penned this one.

He FriendZoned Me


I fell for him,
Like the leaves,
Did for the autumn,
I made a move,
With great intention,
I wanted to love him,
I wanted to be his,
He smiled and said,
Were just good friends,
I don’t want to ruin this,
We agreed and I left,
I wish we were together,
But it could never be,
As he FriendZoned me.

The Dark Times

And hope looked lost,
For some its worrying,
Because of the cost.

All over the world,
With panic and fear,
Words that are hurled.

With no end in sight,
Just keep your mind,
Focused on the light.

And cakes to be baked,
Movies to watch,
And board games to be played,
And that one tradition,
We all insist has just been made.

Before he sees you,
When he creeps,
And drops down the chimney,
With sooty foot,
To leave the presents,
Where the tree is stood.

That Santa will come,
His gifts will bring joy,
To everyone,
And make sure to leave,
One thing out for he,
A drink of milk or maybe some brandy.

Down on the roof,
Each house he will visit,

Reindeer silent on hoof.
