forever goodbye

forever goodbye

                               – blessing buhril

you

and the rest

moves on

i know it’s a good thing

me

here I am

still and still

watching

summer pass by

and winter too

and lately i realize

that i’ll have

to accept the fact

that there are things

which are not meant to be

and you know

it shudders me

to think

that our path

would never cross again

and that

this is already

forever goodbye…

say something

say something

                                                  – blessing buhril

 

when i look up the sky

            and don’t see the stars

when i look at the sign board

           and all is blank

when i look into reality

           and all i see is fiction

i lie on my bed

           and always dream awake

 

What are my eyes for Lord?

What are my ears for Lord?

 

I sit here standing

say something..

perhaps this evening

Please Lord say something.

mothers’ day

mothers’ day

                           – blessing buhril

..

if only we realize

that we’re the Mother

                           of the toxic air

                           of the poisoned river

                          of the felled trees

                          of the birds and the animals

                          that have become refugees

                          of this Earth

if only we realize

that we’re the Mother

                         of the abandoned peace

                        of the broken friendship

                        of the bitter brotherhood

                        of the forgotten smiles and laughter

if only we had realized

that we’re the Mother

this Mothers’ day would have

it would have made sense

revenge

revenge

                            blessing buhril

You are not my foe

and so I chose

not to fight you

I’ve thought about

what I should be doing

as I come along

when evening falls

and you start the scene

On evening like this

every time yes every time

it never takes long

for all my hopes

my dreams

to shatter

On evening like this

like everyone else

I easily tripped

walking the thin line

of

reason and emotions

And so

I’ve thought about

how I should fight back

bullet for bullet

anger for anger and

blood for blood

On evening like this

but I was wondering

if one could ever care

to listen

listen to that voice

that faintly whispers…

But courage

I don’t have it

and how much

I wish I could

I wish I would

gather enough courage

to listen to that faint voice

In the darkest of hour

does it make sense

to believe that

the only true revenge is..

to not..

to not avenge at all?

But

here

right here in this evening

I am telling you this

that..

you are not my foe

and so I chose

not to fight you

i will not break

i will not break

                           – blessing buhril

 

i will not break

when i am in neck deep

dipped in despair

gasping for breathe

and my sight is nothing

but darkness flashing

 

i will not break

when i am a captive of dismay

and all that i ever care

tortured right in front of me.

 

i will not break

after thousand years

and all my bones

turned to dust

 

i will not break

because

there is something

that i believe in

something

that will remain forevermore

 

the promises of God

and  the family

 

i will not break

             ‘I’

 

this path is hazy

            but if this is what you want me to follow

this voice is fainting

            but if this is what you want me to hear

this Plan is intangible

             but if this is what you want me to believe in

here i am Lord

i am all in

i am all in

 

You are the past and beyond

You are the future and beyond

You are the present and ever

here i am Lord

i rest in You

i rest in You

lyrics of my life

lyrics of my life

                                   -blessing buhril

 

Am I suppose to tell you

that songs have been with me?

Do I wish you’d hear about them?

Should I sing to the Moon and Stars?

NO,

not for today.

But,

if you look,

into the mirror of life

and happen to think about me,

ever,

then,

perhaps you’ll see colors,

colors in your cold eyes.

Perhaps hear them songs,

songs in silence..

For,

all these years,

for all I’ve been doing is,

but queuing them songs.

Yes, queuing them, and

singing them silently.

You know,

just so you know,

or you don’t,

but,

that,you’ve been,

and always been

songs of my dreams,

and that you are,

always are,

lyrics of my life.
