On The Other Side

With the right tunes & spaces,
As your heart opens up with grace,
Let it be for a while, it has been such a long wait,
To write, to write…

A homecoming so strong, it breaks you apart,
You have been far, far off from yourself,
Hear, look, listen, repeat,
Need so strong to revive…

Seesaw like life & riding on the brim,
Fear, anxiety, support as a mix,
So much to say, so less to talk,
Where have you been, brave heart?

There’s a long way to go, don’t stop,
Not everyone knows what’s your part,
Life is not fair, doesn’t everyone know?
Do your bit and indulge in peace,
Who are you trying to impress?
What can you achieve in life so short?
Let things be,
Let you be,
Listen to your favorite music,
Open up with those selected few,
You are valued, say with me…

For me, love is the only way to be, he said,
And then he wore his shoes, packed his bags,
He could see the horizon shining bright,
Held hands, he started that journey awaited, alas…
