In My MindIn my mind my imagination runs free,My conscience knows the real me,My intelligence sprouts like a tree,And my thoughts, and open sea.Truthfulness hides from time to time,In the scarce patches of doubt,Love blossoms in my gardens of faith,While shadows of humility wander about.The road of life may distort here and there,Sometimes it isn't clear,I hope someday I find a shady tree of rest,In the endless fields of my mind.
Imperfect HeroYou may not know how strong you areAnd that you are my hero after allYou fight your battles, steadfast and trueAnd you struggle, but rise againAnd that is your strength, a sturdy heartWhen you feel like you're downYou're soon on your feet againAnd stronger than beforeAnd through the ups and downs in lifeYou fall and you rise once moreBecause you are my hero,I'm stronger than before
I Lie AwakeI lie awakeIn the still of eveningThe breath of the nightUpon my lipsHe whispers nothingness in my earAnd elicits a song from the grasses belowThe poetry of the eveningErupts through the airWith no heart to turn to slumberI lie awake
I Can't PretendDon't ask me to turn aroundAnd pretend you're not hereOr disown all I've foundAnd give in to my fearDon't tell me that I have to goAnd tell me how I have to beI'm not putting on your showAnd I'm not pretending not to seeDon't think that you've gotten awayAnd kept your hands cleanYou know I know what you sayAnd you haven't even left the sceneSo don't ask me to turn aroundAnd pretend you're not hereOr disown all I've foundAnd give into fear
Hold My HandHold my hand, I'm scared.I'm lost and alone.In this trap I'm tightly ensnared.And I've been as cold as stone.I've lost my way,I don't know where to turn.For my mistakes I now pay.And in the fire I burn.Don't let me go,I might fall away from you.I have nothing to show,That my promises will come true.I might turn you away,In sadness or in doubt.With fear to face the day,I may just leave you out.But please hold my hand, I'm scared.I'm lost and alone.In this trap I'm tightly ensnared.And I've been as cold as stone.
Half PassedHalf passed this waiting hour.Half passed this night of doom.Half passed these lonely battles.Half passed these open wounds.Half passed now is our journey.Half passed our fellowship is.Half passed each sinking moment.Half passed this war of ruin.Half passed away now is the moon,Half passed beyond the sky,Half passed into the lands undying.Half passed is not our hope.Half passed but not gone.Half passed but almost done.Half passed cannot be the end.Half passed is still unknown.
Forgive MeForgive me.I can't part with the comfortable wallsI have built up around me.I can't hold back a sea of tearswhen I learn that tomorrow may not dawn.And I can't help but feelthese confusing emotionsthat come out no matter how much I tryto hold them back.Forgive me.I just passed what may be my last corner.I might have just jumped my last bridge.I can never let go of the factthat I may be breathing my last breath.And all the venoms of the worldare watching melike I am a toyfor all to hold.Forgive me.I have to take everything in.I must live up the life.I can't stand to leave what I have madewith no glee nor a smile.And so I'll stay herein my wallsfor I am free.So forgive me.
Flowers Upon the SeaAdrift, these blossoms of homage go,To crown the fallen hero.Grieve not for him, his honor kept.Though with the sea he has slept.As time wears on,His memory seeming all but gone,What gift have we to give?A dream to let his memory live.He was not buried in a field of dead.But rested in the Ocean's bed.A fallen hero beyond the shore,Lives on through us forever more.
