Not just yet…

I look around
on a starry night
at the packed bags
the traveller’s plight

Where I come from
where is it I’m off
this heart is bleeding
at the parting thoughts

At the far edge of this night
I find the light’s not too far
For every night has a day
and this is just a start

For those I leave behind
will walk with me again
so there are really no tears
no real pain

For I leave no hate
on these concrete roads
and love is never left behind
never thrown out of the door

For a place this special
needs a celebration
not a morbid end
to two years of redemption!

For there are still journeys ahead
words unsaid smiles unmet
I will not mourn this day
for it ain’t goodbye just yet

Welcome to solitude

In hopes of things old and new
I see pictures of a life without you
if only it were friendship I’d endure
but you would want something forever more

In a city of chaos, there are so many goodbyes
we ought to just smile and wave without a question why
in a swarm of people, I’d rather be alone
with nerves of steel and a heart of stone

you’d walk away with your bowed head
leaving behind lines unread
in me, there lives a soul long lost
Should I lay it bare? and at what cost?
