Await

I will find solace in the end
with no rare views left to defend
.
My heart exposed,
intentions seen,
bringing to light what lives in me
.

A time will come where I shine bright,
all unseen thoughts will come to light
.
Exposing truths,
erasing lies,
unraveling,

negative ties.

I will find solace in the end,
invented tales will simply bend,
falling apart,

repairing hearts,
as meant to be right from the start.


I try my best to live life right,
so I could sleep well through the night,
conscious at ease,

a sense of peace,
sharing the smiles that I receive
.

Solace

You promised to stay,
but your actions were swayed.

I could not remain,
heavy-hearted with pain
.

Left here all alone,
I feel like a lost stone
.
Seasons carry time,
mine arrived as bells chimed.

You seem nonchalant,
did you get what you want?

Do not ask what you know,
as relief I now own
.

Wanting back what I had,
missing you makes me sad.

Though we may be apart,
love has no end or start.

Learning how to accept,
teaches me to connect.

As your smile lights me up,
filling my empty cup.

With a loving farewell,
no more reasons to dwell.

I am always with you,
essence forever true.
