To Ummamma.

‎---Dedicated to my late Grandmother----

Time flies and the clocks tick
And soon they all stand on the edge of the brick
Before they fall they say goodbye
And I go back in time thinking,"Why?"

Why have I never done this?
Why couldn't I be that?
I remembered the time when I was small
Thinking hard of who I wanted to be
But my answer then was my answer now
I just wanted to be happy...

So I hope they had lived a happy life
I hope they would be happy in the hereafter
Sure, they may have flown away
But their suffering just makes me sadder

So I'll stand, Although tears stain my cheeks
I'll look far and see my grandmother in white
She's gone now, She's far away
But I'll love her as always
Just like the old times...

I remember your smile
Your shining eyes
When you saw your grandchildren
We were gifted with that
And a hug was presented after that
You may have had days
Where we watched you suffer
Not knowing what to do
I couldn't help but to wonder

What am I to you?
Do I give you as much happiness as you had given me?
Oh, please, don't make me sadder
To God, I plead, Heaven is for her in the hereafter...

Her Gold

If blood was shed for every tear
She'd cry her heart out until she fears
That the blood she loses will not fade
And the scars of her silence are then made

Every night is just the same
With none to know, friends who defame
She weeps in the silence, a hopeful prayer
And thinks of all the odds that were in her favour

None were there, None to hold
Dear to her heart, which bled like her soul
The pain in her chest comes from only love
And heartbreak for her is like a stepping stone

But hope comes just as it goes
Her misery dies as happiness unfolds
And a little light she emits with her smile
Truth be told, love may be just gold

The lust for love was surely conquered
It brought no good - but harm to her
Instead of crying and staining her face
She chose to be happy, solemn with faith

Now at the top, she's better than revenge
Her heart unbroken, sturdy with a fence
She helps everyone to her hearts content
But little does she know the good it'd bring...
