Mother’s Love

Mother’s Love

As she looked at him and cried
Bringing out the feelings buried deep inside
But it seems no one would understand
Her little child had transformed into a beast that the society could not stand
So he has been asked to go
To a world where his sins can be atoned
But who can stop the mother from crying
Pouring out her love for the child from deep inside

Joker

The child looked at him and smiled
The bright smile, the twinkle in her eyes
Everything about her made him cry

He smiled back and carried on with his work
As he fumbled and stumbled, visibly disturbed
He tried again and down he fell
And she laughed hysterically, her face turned red

But there was something in her laugh that made him cry
For this child was suffering from a deadly disease inside
Thinking of that his throat went dry
God only knows how long she’ll live and when she’ll die
But he was a joker and it his job to make her smile
Make as many moments enjoyable before she dies…

The Warrior

The lone warrior stood on the battleground
As the corpses lay all around
The ones he had killed with his bare hands
A twinge of pain and sorrow for their deaths he felt

Some of them, young innocent men
Dying for a cause which did not even affect them
Why did they come to this cursed battle to die
What about their families, thinking of them he cried…

But life is fair his master had taught
These men deserved to die, that’s why they fought
But what about him, the one who remains alive
With their blood on his hands, how will he survive

Soon his people will come to take him away
Back to his land, where there’ll be parties night and day
But when he returns home and meets his mother again
Won’t he hear the cries of mothers whose sons he has slain

Isn’t it a curse to be alive
And feel the pain of parents whose sons have died
But then as his master said
Some die in battles and pay their dues with their life
While others win wars and stay alive, only to suffer every moment of their wretched lives …

The Truth

The Truth

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth
Was her demand as she looked into my eyes
I told her I… And then… and then… I don’t know why
But I couldn’t go on…

How could I tell her the truth?
As her innocent eyes looked into mine
Trying to find a clue or a slightest hint
But the words would not come out
My mind was filled with doubt

It was a simple question…
Shall I tell the truth and break her heart
Or shall I just tell a lie
I don’t know why, but I just spoke …
It’s all right, everything is all right

I could now see a twinkle in her eyes
And she smiled
She said I knew god would make it all right

I know I had lied…
But the truth would have broken her heart and she would have cried
I loved her more than my life
And I could not bear to see the pain in those beautiful eyes

Then I remembered what my mother had said
A truth that shatters an innocent heart must never be said
I know today I have spoken a lie
But that lie has saved an innocent life
And if I meet the lord in this world or next
I am sure that he would forgive me for that…

Time

Time

The clock ticks and reminds us of all the good times we had
The fun and the frolic
The smile that was angelic
And the carelessness of the youth we had

But as years passed
The carefree laughter became the thing of past
The little joys vanished from our lives
The innocent smiles that were replaced by lonely cries

Time, the all powerful, exerts its force
Makes our sweet little voice harsh and coarse
And at the end, all that you can implore
Is, Time… O Time, melt me and drink my soul
