My Scars

Insignia upon the layers of my skin.
Come brother; let me show you:
Memories of my past
Stings endured, bites, fangs and tan from the other side of a yellow sun.
So, when you see me again crossing your path.
See a man who had been through the fire,
A constant traveller.

Come dear let's discuss
About the pigments on my body
A mirror I see on my days:
Time; to breathe, to think, to joy
And to love
A succour; a friend; a secret and
Reminder of hopes and dreams.

Who told you man hasn't cried  
Have you been to the moon and back 
only to go and pick some specks on the eyes of the milky ways?
Have you ever died, so you can live?
Have you ever llived; so you can die again? 
Come peep my scars and find the meaning of tears.

These scars are mine,
They belong to the past I had lived,
The torment I had left 
With some hope of better days ahead:
Tides on the ocean of life
And some fishes in my net.

Where my scars came?
Maybe from the falling glass on my skin
Maybe from every road I might have taken
Maybe from the moon
Or the rising of the sun
But all I know is my scars are mine forever.

My Love oh my Dove
The day that our love 
would find its way
From my heart into your soul
Embrace It until it's wings grow tall
And It's legs cease to crawl
Then we shall stroll
Serene celestial shore
With you in my arms oh my Love

My love

O mother of affections,
Heartthrob of my spirit
Lovebird of a darling soul;
like a river, you let
Love flow through my heart
O my love.

MOTHER
You are my pain curing,
You are my thoughts hearing,
You are my progress rising,
That's why soul of mine is good..
You are that person who blessed me like a tactor,
You are my bene factor,
And don't let me lose hope,
That's why soul of mine is good..

When I saw him, my charming prince.
The burden that filled my heart,
melted away. At the sound of his angelic voice. Ho, my lovely charming prince.

A sweet sensation, I can sense the flavour.
As the butterfly, flying in my stomach.
Aroma and splendor of a beautiful live well spent.
