Just Pay a Visit
When the tide comes in To quickly go, And without delay I get to row My narrow boat Into the sea, Seek oh no To oar with me... Such voyage is solo! But if you want to listen Or see my face Just pay a visit To the sandy place You find them there On the beachy sweep, Forever at hand By the deep.
As We Freeze
As we freeze in bereavement and bewail Over a beloved that set sail, It is consoling to not forget That only His will does prevail... Throwing tantrums instead Of tears when a dear has fled, In truth only compounds the pain For it can not raise the dead. Prayers for the soul of the gone, The only way the war will be won, And for us too to bear the pangs, Since we can not undo the done! As we freeze in bereavement and bewail, It is comforting to never fail To remind our 'disappointed' selves That only His will does prevail.
I Will Not
How you used your foxy art To convince her gullible heart... I feel like placing on you some timeless curse Having shredded what you're trusted to nurse... Yet on my boundless canvas i will not paint you I'll not love to have posterity cringe at your hideous hue!
