Love forbidden!

Our love story is illicit Forbidden by duty to country We stand on opposite sides Separated by war and death Burdened with guilt and desire But my heart wants what it wants   Our first meet was a coincidence The second was a negotiation The third time was fate And even though it was dangerous…

Hope in living

So what if my heart got broken I would just fall in love again So what if I fail this time I would just try again next time As far as my heart’s still beating I know there is hope in  living   So what if it’s not working today I will regroup and try…

I Was Wrong

He’s good with Kids That’s the first thing I noticed He never looked more handsome, Than when he spoke about what he loved I could feel the power in his passion I could feel the depth in him He’s perfect I was wrong   When people ask me why I stay All they see is…

Let mother sing

Let me tell you a secret See, my mother loves to sing She sings songs that move her She sings blues that soothes her She sings ballads that please her   Let my mother sing a song Sing to me, sing me lullabies Her sweet voice that lulls me to sleep One that is familiar…
