Smile

Soft smile, Tender face

Looking My Way

Sweet Eyes, in the Sun

Baby Lets Have

 

Fingers dancing in the shade

Through the tree i caught your gaze

Waking to your smile, my heart and blood run wild

Never imagined falling this way, I hope you stay

 

Evening side by side

I am glad you are in my life

Evening side by side

I am glad you are in my life

 

Patience and affection, built our connection

Time at your side, Infatuation

Your presence and touch, sustained the love rush

Never imaged falling this way, I hope you stay

 

Soft smile, Tender face

Looking My Way

Sweet Eyes, in the Sun

Baby lets have

 

Evening side by side

I am glad you are in my life

Evening side by side

I am glad you are in my life

 


 

It’s About Time

It is about time to speak your mind

Stop buying lies and join the fight 

We can’t wait the future is here

Speak your mind loud and clear

 

Caps are melting oceans rising

Storms are raging people starving

It’s time to stand for what is right

Make history speak your mind

 

It is about time to speak your mind

Stop buying lies and join the fight 

We can’t wait the future is here

Speak your mind loud and clear

 

Cast your ballot it’s your right

Vote for the planet it’s about time

The earth is our mother, the country our home

Survival depends on her alone

 


 

Salutations

Our worlds collided that sunny day

Your presence changed something in me

Through airport windows once good-bye’s said

This memory passes over my head

 

Taking a seat in the empty row

As the plane takes off and ground fades below

My vision blurs as tears soak my nose

 

You were my sanity, lover and friend

Thank you for sharing your world in the end

 

The day we met, you spoke to me

When others laughed you stood by me

When i doubted myself you held me close

Translating their rumors and racist jokes

 

You never lied or demanded my time

Your sincerity an unusual sign

 

You were my sanity, lover and friend

Thank you for sharing your world in the end

 

A foreigner you shared your pain

Fleeing your home as shakes went up in flame

One cold evening you spoke of back home

Blaming yourself for your brothers death

 

Your sincerity gave me strength to care

Stories you shared gave a depth to your smile

 

Our worlds collided that sunny day

Your presence changed something in me

I write these thoughts down to seal them today

Thank you and good-bye from across the sea

 

You were my sanity, lover and friend

Thank you for sharing your world in the end

 


 

Receiver

I know that world, through the receiver

Whistles and yells, from taxi drivers

Windy streets, filled with vendors

Making ends meet, selling to strangers

 

I smell the meat, hear men talking

See kids laughing, and dogs barking

Mama’s walking, babes on their shoulders

Working to nightfall, to return to their shelters

 

I know that world, I dream of today

Once my own world, now but a memory

 

Accents and smiles, on dark complexions

Walking along, sun lit intersections

Honking horns, smokers smiling

Woman working, in the suns heat

 

Taxi ranks bustling, and doors slamming

Drivers whistling, at people walking

Windy streets, filled with vendors

Making ends meet, selling to strangers

 

I know that world, I dream of today

Once my own world, now but a memory
