No Hellos, No Goodbyes :)

We won't have an end
We didn't have a start
Where was our beginning
We somehow skipped that part

What would we've become 
Where would we have been
It would be interesting
To know what we'd have seen

We just dropped into step
Together in this adventure
I don't know if there's an ending
I don't think we need to measure

We'll just progress along
Taking all within our stride
Some pain, happiness, longing
Joy, sadness and pride

All that we share is ours
And all that we extend
To all that is around us
A love will never end

A prayer

It never is easy
To put on a front
That everything's rosy
That everything's fun

It never is simple
To keep a smile on your face
When someone's being feral
Without care or grace

It never is fine
When they just let things fly
And not toe the line
Yet expect you to comply

But I know in my heart
I will pursue
My faith is secure
My honour is true
My life in His hands
With His grace I endure
That I may go through life
With His blessings, forevermore

 ~ Have patience... You know who you are :) ~

In Memory

When I awake to see
That you are no more with me
And then strikes harsh the reality
Of you, now just a memory
Beautiful faces, beautiful places
A heart to gratify, I think of days gone by

 ~in memory of Mak 6 July 2007~

Goodbye my friend

why am i crying
would anyone understand
why my heart is breaking
into pieces, if it can?

why am i sad
would anyone understand
the level of sadness
of losing you, my friend?

i have thought of you often
would anyone understand
why there is a special spot
for you, be it then?

would anyone understand
why it hurts me so bad
i have lost you today
why i'm feeling sad
but all is fated
i wish you His blessings
and all of God's graces
as your journey begins

Be here I will be, still

When I miss you
There's nought I can do
Your night is my day
You're so far away

You're often on my mind
If time was so kind
I'd ask for a favour
For us to be together

Sometimes I wish it was easy
That you were just next to me
We can chat to our hearts content
And share what we really meant

But what's meant to be
You're not here with me
Neither am I with you
To live what you go through

So cast away your worries
Be here I will be, still
I'll listen to your stories
Though their roles, I can't fill

I'll be here for when you need me
I'll be here for when you don't
So you'll know just where I'll be
And let you down, I won't
