I Have Gone Long, Long Time

I have gone long, long time
Not knowing where to find you-
Peace was never meant for me,
Only heartache and tears-

I have gone long, long time
Without you, darling,
Losing hope that we'll ever
Be together,
But I walked alone and stayed
The course-

I have gone long, long time
Thinking of you, knowing
It was you who would be
There in the end-

The light that would lead me
Back home.

I have gone long, long time
Loving you and missing you,
Knowing well that the path
Would be winding and filled
With pain.

I have gone long, long time
Through the rivers of solitude,
Through the nights of despair,
Through the crowds of anonymity-

Just to hear your voice crystal clear,
Just to touch your lips and feel
The warmth of your hands,
Embracing me.

I have gone long, long time
Through the hills of pain
And the deserts of banality,
Through the corridors filled
With empty laughter and ignorance.

I have gone long, long time
Just to tell you I love you, darling.

Peace! What Do Tears Avail?

PEACE! what do tears avail?
She lies all dumb and pale,
And from her eye
The spirit of lovely life is fading,
And she must die!
Why looks the lover wroth? the friend upbraiding?
Reply, reply!

Hath she not dwelt too long
’Midst pain, and grief, and wrong?
Then, why not die?
Why suffer again her doom of sorrow,
And hopeless lie?
Why nurse the trembling dream until to-morrow?
Reply, reply!

Death! Take her to thine arms,
In all her stainless charms,
And with her fly
To heavenly haunts, where, clad in brightness,
The Angels lie.
Wilt bear her there, O Death! in all her whiteness?
Reply, reply!

Migration

I owned it.
As it dawned on me.
Hopelessness!
Sudden realization, of a deed.

Long time acoming - It was.

Awhile lingered - On its way.
Yet, inevitably approached.
Unkind fate.
Doom! I was wedded to.

Why resist its call?
Thus extend, my agony.
Waiting, expecting - Fearing!
To fall - Ever and again.

Why not cease?

Surrender.
Meet my fate.
Head-on charge.
Into thee, Oblivion.

Why do you linger on?
Unwanted hope.
Insidious friend!

Please, let me go.
Fall into abyss.
Find peace, at last!

To what end? Benefit.
Will this teeter - Tooter.
On the brink of darkness bring.
Ever deeper, tempting its call.

So I wail, resist it.
Believe on us - Love!
Doubt - My very ability.
To see, touch you again.

Hear thy breath.
Beating, of hearts.
Brought together.
Just once more.

These measures, of life.
Once belonged.
Sang with us.
Now paralyzed.

Forgotten linger.
For days, weeks, months.
Years, on end.
Continued.

With nothing, but a memory.
Love, wishes moved.
Our futures pinned.
Upon a wall.

Held together, by an ideal.
Just a picture, for two.
Of me - And, of you.
Which I kept, held onto.

Through it all.
Wondered why?
Must we meet.
Love! Wish!

Uselessly bleed.

For all we know - I appear.
A wisp, fading and playing.
Shifting, as reflection - I am.
On a pool of mist.

A mirage, of a shadow.
In a dream, that is....

The time when suddenly spring does unfold (English sonnet)

The time when suddenly spring does unfold
when skies are crystal clear, sunny and blue
in blossoming trees and flowers I do behold
and still my deep feelings for you are true

when all of nature is gay, full of life,
when the season is more hot than temperate
and it's a great blessing that you are my wife
that together daily we do face fate

and although at times you bring me pain
there is loveliness that on your face I see
and our feelings of affection and love does remain
as if by God's own hand they are set to be

as if from the creation together we do belong,
still my love for you daily grows more strong.

I Gotta Find Peace Of Mind

I gotta find peace of mind... I gotta find peace of mind
He says it's impossible... But I know it's possible
He says it's impossible... But I know it's possible
He says there's no me without him... Please help me forget about him
He takes all my energy... Trapped in my memory
Constantly holding me... Constantly holding me
I need to tell you all... All the pain he's caused
Mmmmm
I need to tell you I'm... I'm undone because
Mmmmm
He says it's impossible... But I know it's possible
He says it's impossible without him... But I know it's possible
To finally be in love... And know the real meaning of
A lasting relationship... Not based on ownership
I trust every part of u.... Cause all that you say you do
You love me despite myself Sometimes I...
I fight myself I just can't believe that you.... Would have anything to do
With someone so insecure... Someone so immature
Ohh you inspire me, to be the higher me
You make my desire pure... You make my desire pure
Just tell me what to say... I can't find the words to say
Please don't be mad with me... I have no identity
All that I've known is gone... All I was building on
I wanna walk wit you, how do I talk to you?
Touch my mouth with your hands... Touch my mouth with your hands
Oh I wanna understand the meaning of your embrace
I know now I have to face... The temptations of my past
Please don't let me disgrace... will my devotion last
Now that I know the truth... Now that it's no excuse
Keeping me from your love... What was I thinking of?
Holding me from your love... What was I thinking of?
You are my peace of mind... That old me is left behin

To Find Peace

anger eats away the soul,
Until nothing is left.
Mankind remains,
A husk of itself.
Its true glory,
Never reached.
Only in death,
It will find peace.

Virtue and Sin

Knowledge is the path that leads to virtue.
Ignorance is the path that leads to sin.

Hope and expectation enhance patience.
Greed is responsible for so many miseries.

Arrogance begets hatred.
Modesty attracts others.

Forgiveness helps to end conflict.
Revenge sows the seed of further retaliation.

Truthfulness makes things crystal clear.
Dishonesty is the way to deprive others.

Jealousy destroys peace of mind.
Kindness brings forth peace.

Sympathy teaches to sacrifice.
Selfishness destroys friendship.

Love is the key to unity
Hate causes war and strife.

So keep the world inside your mind
As if it’s your only child.

A Dreamscape of Love

I still find comfort
In the soft caress
Of the moonlight’s
Tender glow
And hear your voice
Crystal clear
Drifting gently
Through a seductive breeze.

And I still feel
Your lips upon my neck,
How you would even kiss
The beads of my rosary
In a resplendent prayer
For our eternity
In a dreamscape of love.

Some days and events
Never end
But carry us through
This life
That often feels
Like a city besieged
By dog armies
Of the insensitive and cruel.

And Ill never forget
When your body was a part of mine.

Long Time Gone

by Bob Dylan
My parents raised me tenderly,
I was their only son.
My mind got mixed with ramblin'
When I was all so young,
And I left my home the first time
When I was twelve and one.
I'm a long time a-comin', Maw,
An' I'll be a long time gone.
On the western side of Texas,
On the Texas plains,
I tried to find a job o'work
But they said I's young of age.
My eyes they burned when I heard,
"Go home where you belong!"
I'm a long time a-comin',
An' I'll be a long time gone.
I remember when I's ramblin'
Around with the carnival trains,
Different towns, different people,
Somehow they're all the same.
I remember children's faces best,
I remember travelin' on.
I'm a long time a-comin',
I'll be a long time gone.
I once loved a fair young maid
An' I ain't too big to tell,
If she broke my heart a single time,
She broke it ten or twelve.
I walked and talked all by myself,
I did not tell no one.
I'm a long time a-comin', babe,
An' I'll be a long time gone.
Many times by the highwayside,
I tried to flag a ride.
With bloodshot eyes and gritting teeth,
I'd watch the cars roll by.
The empty air hung in my head
I's thinkin' all day long.
I'm a long time a-comin',
An' I'll be a long time gone.
You might see me on your crossroads
When I'm a-passin' through.
Remember me how you wished to
As I'm a-driftin' from your view.
I ain't got the time to think about it,
I got too much to get done.
Well, I'm a long time comin'
An' I'll be a long time gone.
If I can't help somebody
With a word or song,
If I can't show somebody
They are travelin' wrong.
But I know I ain't no prophet
An' I ain't no prophet's son.
I'm just a long time a-comin'
An' I'll be a long time gone.
So you can have your beauty,
It's skin deep and it only lies.
And you can have your youth,
It'll rot before your eyes.
Just give to me my gravestone
With it clearly carved upon:
"I's a long time a-comin',
An' I'll be a long time gone.

Peace In Our Time

Go swiftly
The flags and drums can hypnotise
When glory has faded the dream
Is worth more than the prize
A twisting turning flame
And a freedom burning bright
Knows all of the names
And all of the games
Of the yellow black and white
Weve gotta have faith
To work it out
Faith and hope
Without any doubt
Give us strenght to make a start
Put a song in our hearts.....
Chorus:
Were never gonna break down these walls
And build a prison with the stone
cos you and I know what love is worth
Were gonna build heaven on earth
Were running in the wheels of fortune
Turning water into wine
Were gonna take love and make it shine
Were gonna find peace in our time
Softly, softly
When there is lightening in the sky
When the rivers are rising and
Trouble rolls in on the tide
Well keep on keeping on
til all the tears are dry
Well weather the storm and
Welcome the dawn
Of tomorrow you and i
Weve gotta have faith
And get it fast, faith and hope
And make it last
Give us strength
To reach the stars
Put a song in our hearts
Repeat chorus
Solo
Were raisin the dust
Its heaven or bust
And well see this dream come true
Were gonna have faith.....(faith)
The road will be long
But theres hope.....(hope)
To carry us on
Well have strength....(strength)
Well never go wrong
With this song in our hearts
Repeat chorus
At the sign (sign)
Of the dove
Its gonna shine (shine)
Shine (shine)
Shine (shine)
On a wing
And a prayer
Well be fine
Fine
Fine
Repeat chorus til fade

Train Long Gone

(Gone!) Well, I hate how that word
Rattles all around in this room
(Alone,) with a memory so strong
I could sweep it up with a broom.
(Tears,) if I shed anymore I'm afraid
They might wear out my face
(Clear,) Yes, It's clear to me now
That her love can never be replaced.
Love may be gone but never forgotten
The memory won't leave you alone
And the train may be long gone from the station
But you still hear the whistle moan.
Still hear the whistle moan.
--- Instrumental ---
(Time,) time got so slow and thick
That the clock hardly ticks anymore
(Crime,) it's a crime how I sit here
And stare like a dog at the door.
(Blame,) Aw yes, I'll take the blame
I admit I did not treat her right
(Shame,) It's a shame laying here
All alone on this cold, windy night.
Love may be gone but never forgotten
The memory won't leave you alone
And the train may be long gone from the station
But you still hear the whistle moan.
Still hear the whistle moan.
Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh
Train gone, long gone train.
Ohh, Ohh, Ohh
Train gone, long gone train.
Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh
Train gone, long gone train.
Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh
Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh.
Love may be gone but never forgotten
The memory won't leave you alone
And the train may be long gone from the station
But you can still hear the whistle moan.
Still hear the whistle moan.
Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh
Train gone, long gone train.
Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh
Train, long gone train.
Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh
Train, long gone train.
Ohh, Ohh, Ohh
Train gone, long gone train.
Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh
Train, long gone train.
Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh
Long gone train.
Ohh, Ohh, Ohh
Train, long gone train.
Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh
Train, long gone train...

Long Ago And Far Away

Long ago a young man sits and plays his waiting game
But things are not the same it seems as in such tender dreams
Slowly passing sailing ships and Sunday afternoon
Like people on the moon I see are things not meant to be
Where do those golden rainbows end?
Why is this song so sad?
Dreaming the dreams I've dreamed my friend
Loving the love I love
To love is just a word I've heard when things are being said
Stories my poor head has told me cannot stand the cold
And in between what might have been and what has come to pass
A misbegotten guess alas and bits of broken glass
Where do your golden rainbows end?
Why is this song I sing so sad?
Dreaming the dreams I dream my friend
Loving the love I love to love to love to love

A long wait

It is long wait o, rain
We long for you with pain
Godowns are empty without grain
This is our concern main

Lots of hope and despair
Air is thick but very clear
Down pour with tremendous force
Set it right with definite course

We are starved to death with hunger
We can’t express it in anger
You know our pitiful plight
Set the course with lovely delight

Every dropp may bring immense pleasure
We are confident you will make it sure
We fold our hands in your praise
All our eyes are unable to rise

The earth is torn apart
It is end of the start
We may vanish so soon
The sun is blazing in after noon

Shower the land with your powerful arm
Let there be greenery in our farms
We shall survive with your noble gesture
Else there may not be place for our future

How Long Has This Been Going On?

neath the stars, at bazaars
Often Ive had to caress men
Five or ten, dollars then, Id collect from all those yes-men
Dont be sad, I must add, that they meant no more than chess-men
Darling, cant you see?
twas for charity?
Though these lips have made slips, it was never really serious
Whod have thought, Id be brought to a state thats so delirious?
I could cry salty tears
Where have I been all these years?
Little wow, tell me now
How long has this been goin on?
There were chills up my spine
And some thrills I cant define
Listen sweet, I repeat
How long has this been goin on?
Oh, I feel that I could melt
Into heaven Im hurled
I know how columbus felt
Finding another world
Kiss me once, then once more
What a dunce I was before
What a break, for heavens sake
How long has this been goin on?
(spoken)
Kiss me twice, once more, thrice, make it four
What a break, for heavens sake
How long has this been goin on?

Peace In Our Time

Thank you for the gift
The freedom to wonder
In search of the light
Are we gonna let it shine
Forgiveness is the key
The perfect emotion
Will you show us the way
To peace in our time
Where the wild wind blows
The deserts are shiftin
And the seed will grow
In the sands of time
From the darkest night
A new day is dawning
Its a long long way
To peace in our time
Tell me where can we find
Peace in our - in our time
Where can we find
Peace in our time
From a distant shore
Voices are crying
Can you hear them call
Are we gonna light their way
Salvation is the key
We have to keep tryin
What we need right now
Peace in our time
Tell me where can we find
Peace in our - in our time
Where can we find
Peace in our time
Thank you for the chance
To light up the darkness
Leading the way
Show us to the promised land
Tear down these walls
That keep us imprisoned
What were prayin for
Is peace in our time
Tell me where can we find
Peace in our - in our time
Where can we find
Peace in our time

Rain in Summer Time

rain.....summer
summer......rain
a time in our life
a time where rain falls
in summer time
where lonely-hearts toast
on a long shore of solitude
And wavy sand of aches

Any Time

How long ago the day is
when at last I look at it
with the time it has taken
to be there still in it
now in the transparent light
with the flight in the voices
the beginning in the leaves
everything I remember
and before it before me
present at the speed of light
in the distance that I am
who keep reaching out to it
seeing all the time faster
where it has never stirred from
before there is anything
the darkness thinking the light

Humanities Long March To Freedom

simple words of faith love hope
may not be simple to clear write
long might be days nights writing
sacrifices necessary to give birth
to simple noble words on blank page
words to inspire faith love hope
words of ideals dreams sincerity
wonder reborn in blessings hoped

aspired to lantern lamps are lit
by day by night who will sage
come to honour to join illustrious
freedom marches in humanities
long march to freedom choices
long is the list of freedom lovers
come swell ranks seeking liberty
reclaim free will for own actions

Beside You In Time

I am all alone this time around
Sometimes on the side I hear a sound
Places parallel I know it's you
Feel the little pieces bleeding through
And on this goes on and on and on
and on and on and on and on
This goes on and on and on and on
and on and on and on and on
Now that I've decided not to stay
I can feel me start to fade away
Everything is back where it belongs
I will be beside you before long
And on this goes on and on and on
and on and on and on and on
This goes on and on and on and on
and on and on and on and on
Ooooh
We will never die
Ooooh
Beside you in time

The Winding Ways Of Gried And Insecurities....

....that grief is, 'like a long valley, a winding valley where any bend may reveal a totally new landscape.' (c.s. lewis)

...we have walked for quite a time
in this winding path,
we settled on plateaus
and then started again on those winding
paths of
mountains high
crossed rivers for the nth time
and rested on
grasses with our back
dirties sometimes

...the rains are heavy sometimes
and we feel the cold and some of us
get sick,
hard coughs that seem to take away all
inside our lungs,
pains that stay on our legs for days
the anxieties in our heads
as to where is this journey taking
all of us, , , ,

no one really knows,

but the hope is there,
somewhere is a rainbow
somewhere is a totally new landscape

we imagine what kind of happiness
awaits us there

they are not telling us.

Long, Long Way From Home

It was a monday
A day like any other day
I left a small town
For the apple in decay
It was my destiny
Its what we needed to do
They were telling me
Im telling you
I was inside looking outside
The millions of faces
But still Im alone
Waiting, hours of waiting
Paying a penance
I was longing for home
Im looking out for the two of us
I hope well be here when theyre through with us
I was inside looking outside
Oh the millions of faces
But still Im alone
Waiting, hours of waiting
I could feel the tension
I was longing for home
Im looking out for the two of us
And I hope well be here when theyre through with us
Im coming home
Monday, sad, sad monday
Shes waiting for me
But Im a long, long way from home
Sad, sad monday
Shes waiting for me
But Im a long, long way from home
Sad, sad monday
Oh shes waiting for me
But Im a long, long way from home
