Rolled Stone

Rolled Stone

I laid down the flower with a note in my heart …

All i did was stare …

A thousand tears, yet ten thousand more …

Confused, Afraid, Sad, …

All my whispers, All my thoughts…

All my reasons, All my hopes…

To be sharing each sunrise and sunset with you…

Good times, bad, see you breathe…

All the joy that filled me all this years…

Just snapped away…..

Okay, it was just a dream …

But today I’m awake …

There is still no sign of you …

No sign of that voice that calls out my name …

That presence that liven my mornings …

That feeling of belonging, that feeling I was loved …

That symbol of discipline, raising me too be strong …

Ordering my path, through right and through wrong …

… IS THIS ALL THAT’s LEFT OF YOU?…

A day to remember your passing?…

A day when my tears will flow freely without asking? …

A day of wishful thinking?

.. I’ll say these words, hoping to find peace …

Hoping to put my mind at ease ..

I MISS YOU!! …

In words, I lack expression ..

In truth, I lack conviction …

I’m staring at the gravest inevitable …

.. YOU WON’T BE HERE!! …

Here to look me in the eye, your arms around me..

Here to be my reason, the strength I need to carry on …

You won’t be here to share my tears, fears and pain ..

Be my guide when I fail again and again…

… WHO CAN YOU STOP THESE TEARS FROM FALLING?….

As the memories come pouring in …

As the reasons I had you stabs me right in the heart …

As the pain within tears me apart …

Who will I run to when life’s troubles weigh me down

Who will I turn to when my needs make me frown…

Who will dry these tears when I cry….

My tears will reflect times…

I was mad at you ‘cos your scolds were excessive…

When the whip struck my skin and made me cry…

For times I wished I wasn’t born to u ‘cos my peers were richer…

For moments you looked down on me ‘cos my results were poor…

I never got to say I love you enough…

.. Till we meet again, I love you Dad ….
