Together, we could never be

To all the places I wanted to be to,
To all the beaches I couldn’t be to,
To all the churches I turned my back to,
To all the islands I wished to be lost on,
To all the woods I dared not to wander into,
To all the deserts I never ran into,
To all the mountains I couldn’t climb,

I have to say I never will
Because I never could,
As it never worked,
Sometimes it was too dark to dare,
Sometimes to bright for my eyes,
Sometimes it was too lonely to go,
Sometimes too crowded for me to fit in,
Sometimes you were too far away,
Sometimes you lay too high,
Sometimes your dense strands bewildered me,
Sometimes your tranquility scared me,
Sometimes you looked too stranded for my shoulder to have your head,
Sometimes you looked too happy for me to hold your hand,
Sometimes you were too pure for me,
Sometimes you burnt my head,
Sometimes intruders threatened me,
Sometimes my intentions were foolish,

Together, somehow we could never be.

I would be happy if you make me sad today

I would be happy if you make me sad today.
Help me go deep inside, where I can meet myself.
So that I can be fit for my soul and not right for outsiders.

I would be happy if you make me sad today.
Strengthen me face myself, empower me look into my eyes.
For long I haven’t sobbed, for long I haven’t looked inside.

I would be happy if you make me sad today.
For long you’ve kept me so happy that I feel I’m not content.
For long you’ve held me so close that I’ve gone away from myself.

I would be happy if you make me sad today.
For, all can make me happy,
But only you can make me sad.
