The End

The sun is setting
I feel the warmth fading away
I can feel it brush past my fingertips
And it's gone

I was watchingI was trying to say
I wish we could hold on

To that last bit of sunshine
It could still make my day
To that last ray of hope
Before it went astray

And I feel like a little bit of me is dying
And I feel like a lit bit of me isn't there
I feel it all again,
I feel it all one last time
I'll still need to see your face
How am I supposed to say goodbye
Is this really how it ends

You were my ecstasy
My first drop of pain

Oh it's just hit me
That you've not been there
For a long time

For a long time

And I've watched the sun set
And I've felt you wash over me and away
I felt the kiss of your lips
On my heart, on my heart
And now you're done

And now you're done with me,
It's fading away

You were my sunshine
And now you are the rain.



So I guess this means this is the last post on this blog.  It feels like when someone punches the wind out of you. It feels like you felt when you first fell in love, but instead of that giddy feeling of wholesomeness, you feel empty. I'm disappointed, but I wouldn't trade a second of away. I loved you.

Always


I can't tell you just how far it is
If we could judge by time alone
When I talk about the sunrise
You've missed the morning too

You've never up in time to see it
But sooner than later my love
I'll wake you in the morning
And see to it that you do

I couldn't tell you how long it's been
For then I'd be counting days
Every morning to another night
And the tricks my mind plays

I can't tell you how I miss you
Hang up the phone and cry
I can't tell you how I miss you
For then I'll need to know

I can't remember tomorrow
I cannot fucking know
I love you and I want you
As long as it's today

So far yet so close.

Here, Away.


Won't you let me be, my love?
Give me just a little longer

For I have found my quiet place
Where my mind and heart may wander.



I love you.

Really

It doesn't seem like that a long time
That we complain of flying by
I wake up and I know that I
Have all day ahead of me

And you'll be there, in the morning
Smiling down at me
And then I'll blink a few times
Take a look around to see

If you're really there,
Are you really there?
Have you jumped out of a dream
Or if it was going badly
Have you come to rescue me?

I'm walking out, it's afternoon
Trying to keep sight of you
But it would seem that you have disappeared

And as I sit down by my lonesome
Stare into the crowd
You tiptoe right, by my side
Where did you come from now

But you'll be there, in my lonesome
Smiling down at me
And then I'll blink a few times
Take a look around to see

If you're really there,
Are you really there?
Has it really been three years
I had never been prepared
But you've taken over me

So I'll fly down to your place now,
The sun is about leave
I'm calling out your name now,
Open this door for me

It doesn't seem like that a long time
That we complain of flying by
As I stand there I know that I
Have all day ahead of me

And there you are, in the doorway
Smiling back at me
And then I'll blink a few times
Because this feels like a dream

And you'll be there, in the morning
The sunshine in your eyes
With a soft breeze through your hair
And you look beautiful, beautiful
Why am I not surprised

It doesn't seem like that a long time
That we complain of flying by
As I stand there I know that I
Have all of time ahead of me

And I wake up, every morning
Knowing that you're there
As the parade of time goes marching by
We're watching and we don't care
You can close your eyes now
I'm really here,
I'm really here


It's been a year since my last poem song-lyric to you. Oh well.

Potatoes in my basket and all things lively.

I don't know what I'm doing
And I think I never do
But the things that keep me going
Seem to have a lot to do with you
And if I see no reason, then I often see a rhyme
That's what keeps me singing
Till the end of time

I say!

There are potatoes in my basket and I don't know how they got there
And though I never weighed them I could say they're getting heavier
If you think this has no meaning that's a lot of hot air
See, these people think I'm crazy but, en contraire
I guess I really like you
And that seems quite fair

I tried to study a lot and remember what I read
But it didn't really work out
And that's when people said
Well
No one really said anything, can I pretend?
I didn't really tell them so
I presume that it's my bad.

Hey!

There are potatoes in my basket and I don't know how they got there
And though I never counted them I think that we're one short
To be honest I don't know
Why I have a basket in the first place
All that the circumstances do say
Is that life convolutes a lot

One day you're an aeroplane
The other you are scrap
You may be worthy of the matador
Or just the Spanish snack
It boils down to the question that must surely be asked
Do prefer being skewered or having swords stuck in your ass?

Oi!

There are potatoes in my basket and I don't know how they got there
But some of these cranky tubers would sure like to
I'm as clueless as you are
When you wonder if you're at par
With everybody in the world and if there's anything that sets you apart?

Can you take a few decades out of your life to shoot to instant fame?
Can you sacrifice some of your brawn to gain a little brain?
Is it really true that we could be all the same?
Is it true that we are all the same
If you looked from far enough away?
We're just all same

There are potatoes in my basket and I can't tell them apart
Unless I look a little closer
And make a fresh start
At them
Again

It's so easy to forget it all and to watch you smile
Everything you do to me
Makes it worth the while
And this while will last forever
And I do not mind
Let me take you somewhere, touched not by time
And let's see what we find
In each other

Here I am singing a song
That changes its tune far too often
But there are lots of words that rhyme,
And it's all I have to offer
And it goes on for too long

Aye,

I don't how I got a basket-in-the-first-place
And I know that I make no sense
These are strange circumstances
But there are potatoes in my basket
And I don't know how they got there.

I wrote this at intervals of cheese popcorn, noodles, soan papdi and the movie Snatch. Which would answer your question: "What the fuck?"

Half

It's quite cold today
The clouds just won't let go of the sun
Better than yesterday
I felt my hand would go numb
Why can't these days become
Any better
Oh they just can't get better
They just can't get better
No

Wanted to walk near the flowers today
But there's an angry hive loose in the air
A bear stole some honey
A cat was sitting right there
And it had to run
Why can't these days become
Any better
Oh they just can't get any better
They just can't get any better
'Cause I, just remembered you..

Hidden in these words is a smile
And it's wide, and it's mine and it's mine
Pronounced everytime, I say I love you
Properly true,
Yes I love you..
Sweet love of mine, yes I love you..
Inside, a troupe is playin hard,
Xylophones and harmonica

Pity you'll never get to hear it
Rhythm of me heart might let you feel it
It's such a weird sensation
Nested deep in oconversations
Crying out loud to be heard
Ends up manifesting itself in words
Seldom does it betray it's meaning
Shows just a feeling, a hint of feeling..

Wanted to buy you some chocolates today
And a heart shaped sweet bun
And wrap it all up with a bouquet
But the streets caught fire 
And my plans were done
Oh, why oh why, can't these days become 
Any better
Oh I know they just can't get any better
I know they just can't get any better

'Cause I, just remembered you...

My Day

No matter what I've got
Or what I've let go
No matter what I've given
There's something more you should know

No matter where you are
Or where you will be
I know where we've been
And the places we've to see

Many roads to cross ahead and
Many rivers to swim
I'd do it all holding your hand
And fly with the wind

Sometimes I feel I've had it all
And there's more to come
Maybe I've gone through it all
And have nowhere left to run

I ain't asking for too much more
It's well within my right
I just want some sunshine through my window
Is it so hard to come by?
I just want some sunshine through my window
And I find it in your smile
And I find it in your smile

No matter how dark the days could be
Or how quiet the night
No matter if I have nothing left
To live the same life

No matter which way the earth would spin
Or how far away I'd find my home
If I lose all my words to sing
Lose faith in the love above

If I see through all of time
And if I stand to lose
If I give up all my life
With nothing to choose
I know I do it all because
I've made up my mind
There may be many treasures but
You're the only gem I'd ever try to find

And I just want some
Sunshine through my window
Is it so hard to come by?
I just want some sunshine through my window
And I find it in your smile
I just want some sunshine through my window
And I find it in your smile

I'd die for you
I live for you
I do everything I do for you
Hold you in my arms and tell you the truth
And you've always known how much I love you
I do everthing that I do
I do for you

And I just want some
Sunshine through my window
Is it so hard to come by?
I just want some sunshine through my window
And I find it in your smile
And I find it in your smile
And I find it in your smile

You make my day.
