There Are Good Things Too


Friends and acquaintances who loved us true,

Beloved birds chirping with cheerful glee,

Once again on that shore, sands askew,

Love's feast they've set, inviting you and me.


See how long it's been since our paths diverged,

No arrivals, no tidings brought our way,

Sweet desires dwindling, barely emerged,

Arriving at your intent, missing the day.


Frail souls, blinded by grudges and spite,

One day the wedding you boasted will rot,

Fueled by hatred and greed's endless fight,

The jug will shatter, unable to be sought.


Let's momentarily forget the days that passed,

Observe the skies, the moonlit night's dance,

Shake off the dust, let go of the past,

Rooting our hearts anew, in this fresh chance.


Unforgettable Loves


Love lived from afar to afar,

Like an angel sent from the divine,

Neglect it not, for someone's worth,

The beat of your heart, the breath in line.


Daytime's dream within your gaze,

Bestowing moonlight upon the night,

Should the dream fade, unheard it be,

A sigh of that moment, taking flight.


Love known in this world as ardor,

A matchstick tending a hidden flame,

Embers untouched, unburned by time,

Desires held close, their passions untamed.


Life written together with her by your side,

Both a reality and dreamscape combined,

When you find your place, cease to wander,

It's the honeyed voice you've longed to find!




Victory - the world's most magnificent state!

Lived and understood by those who comprehend!

Its sweetness, far beyond, akin to honey's fate!

Tasted once in a lifetime, its joy has no end!


Through hardships, through turmoil, it journeys wide,

Tuning the strings of persistence, harvesting fields,

Standing strong, alone, death's potion is tried,

Even this, a martyr knows, his honor reveals!


Like a falcon poised to strike, lightning's grace,

Liberating every inch of land, guarding it so,

Holding its tricolor banner on mountain's face,

Valor of heroic sons, in Homeland, we know!
