“One Last Step”

If I had,

One last step,

Would it be,

Forward or backward?

Would I choose,

To see future,

Or see past,

Let me think.

I step forward,

What’s the point,

To see what,

I mustn’t know.

I step back,

Simply to remember,

What already happened,

My wonderful memories.

What’s the point,

To see future,

I only have,

One last step.

So I decide,

I stay put,

I am satisfied,

I’ve done well.

Once I knew a name,

Once I played the game,

Once I held such shame,

Once I felt much blame.

I had always wished for more,

As I cried, I fell to the floor,

I tried so hard to open a new door,

As I felt my life washing up ashore.

Finally I’d had it with all the tries,

It was then I suddenly realized,

That all of my lonely and hurtful cries,

Would soon be answered by his eyes.

I dreamt of another way,

I knew I’d be safe in his arms one day,

There was no more to think or say.

I was sure in my heart I would soon be okay.

Now I am thankful that the past has passed,

I am safe in his strong arms at last,

The future is all we together hold,

A lifetime of riches brighter than gold.

“Once”

“Beauty”

What is beauty?

You are beauty,

I am beauty,

Together, we are beautiful.

Our eyes met,

We knew at that very moment,

There was no question about it,

We would be one.

With the same dreams,

The same ambitions,

In finding each other,

We have a promising future.

You have become a part of me,

A part of me I cannot deny,

I have become a part of you,

We have become one.

What is beauty?

You are beauty,

I am beauty,

Together, we are beautiful.
