Never Far Away!

Now that I'm near, drinking from the same stream.
Awakening by the same timezone, cook-a-doodle-doo.
Now that we sings and dance,
To the tune of the chirping cricket at sunset,
Before the moonlight tales.

Before you drench your blouse with tears.
Before you become the talk of the town.
Before they push you away to the solitary room.
Before your beauty gloom and your radiant sun set.

It's better you jump, if you can't fly.
It's better you crawl, if you can't walk.
It's the set time, to ride on the shoulder of the whirlwind; 
And look for the love of your life.
Before your love leave the shore of Africa,
To sojourn in far away cities.
Then, it will be too late.

Meditate and think on what to do, to bridge the gap.
Before the cockcrow, after the dew drops.
Before it's too late to connect and heal a broken heart.
For the love ones never far away, no matter the distance.

Love held in hands,
Opens eyes to  hope in the skies;
Now I see light.

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Dear Valentine

Val' as you are,

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
