Ballad from the grave

I had my hopes and dreams.
And my fervent ambitions.
Things the world made me achieve.
Not excluding my derelictions

I never learned to love
For I feared the other side of hate
My heart was one big diamond
So I kept it in a safe

I turned moods sour
Dropping heads at my feet
All to gain power
Everyday it was on repeat

Oh, the companionship I yearn,
But I built fences of stone
And gates of wood and iron
To protect all I own

I should have remained a little one
And made my heart brave.
I regret all I have done
As I look on from the grave

Dear Valentine

Val' as you are,
Val' as it is,
Val' I engage.

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..
