Heavenly downpour is here
To wash away every fear,
Cleanse the impure souls
And actualize unachievable goals

Heavenly downpour is here
To make the leaves and flowers
Bloom by her superpowers;
The birds dance happily and stare

Heavenly downpour is here
To carry the burdens we couldn't bear;
Enthrone the gloomy slaves
And enliven corpses in the graves

Heavenly downpour is here
To drown faithless failures and sins
And celebrate the lasting wins
To prove that she truly care

Heavenly downpour is here
To announce another harvest year;
Farmers till and toil the land,
Hoping for bountiful harvest as planned

The cloud cackles and tickles
As she sent down her blessings
To the deserted earth in trickles
Touching the trees by caressings

Children play hide and seek
Both the strong and the weak;
The pitapats of hails on the roofs
Invigorate homes to sing and hoofs

Couples savour the blissful breeze,
The scented moment drew their lips
As their hearts and mouths freeze,
Holding hands and waists in grips

i remember you whispering in my ear in mass when we were meant to be reciting our hail marys.
and daydreaming during the homilies of how dangerously strong our love may be if it was let known,
reverberating over holy lands,
overpowering the sounds of church bells.
but only the walls can hear our words over the loudly sung psalms
and only a god can see in the dark.
your love was architectural.
your love built me cathedrals,
your love built me empires.
the soft vibrations of your sweet love words bounced off the stain-glassed windows and silently drew an echo over the room,
through the pews, up to the sacred altar, presented as a gift to all.
a poet you are, my love,
a goddess, even more so,
with your words, you have the power to create
and with your love, you have the will to sanctify.
for churches are divine, and gods are ancient,
but you are you, forevermore, every century.

Do you ever wonder, what why, who you see?
When you cast your eyes heavenly.
By night when the stars shine bright.
Like fires burning in the skies.
Do you ever wonder who you see twinkling before your eyes?
Do you ever wonder who has joined you that night?
Is it a popstar, politician, inventor or wisely sage?
From a time so long ago, you cannot remember their exact age.
Clinging to their last song, speech or invention.
Letting go, never their desire or intention.
Or is it a lost loved one?
Letting you know they are near.
Listen very closely what do you hear?
“Hi, its smee, I know you think of me all the time, I just wanted you to know, I did not go far, I am right here!”
Taking in the stars is a game we all love to play.
Breath in
Breath out
Take a minute
Take Five
Take a moment to feel alive
Connection made now you can rest.
Relieve the pressure from your chest.
Sleep tight without longing.
Knowing you can see your loved one again tomorrow.
Brings a small amount of peace and joy, helps to dim the sorrow.
Dedicated to all lost loved ones, in particular Dad, Pete, Shane, Oskar and Ted.
Always missed, never forgotten. Keep shining brightly, we see you.

3 years ago, Grenfell Tower happened and many people lost loved ones and some lost many loved ones.  This is dedicated to anyone who lost and still misses a loved one.

The Heavens are closer
to Earth tonight
to sing for you
and hold you in their silk arms.
But you are frowning at the sidewalk,
looking for pieces
of your broken heart.
Just look up, darling.
Constructive criticism is welcome.

Father Father where are you?
Father Father, I know I have lied to you.
Father, I have said I won’t do it again,
but yet, I went straight ahead and did what I ought not to do,
But that which I ought to do have never been in my thought,
I have broken your trust, and now my words are like dust
I have disappointed you, I know I am wrong
Why am I always so head strong?

Father Father, please lend a listening ear
Father hear my cries, see my tears, as I beg on my hands and Knees.
Father God I know it is my fault,
a default of my actions, words and thought
Father I feel that you are gone and now this battle can’t be won
All alone now has made my sorrow seep deep within my bones,
I know you can hear me; I know you can see.
I know you are up there looking down at me.
As such I ask, I pray, I hope, father please help me here below
Father please give me the strength so I could cope.
Father I am so sorry for all the things I have done before.

Father Father it is really dark here and I am scared
I don’t know what I should do, where should I go
I am so confused,
But what is fear? I shouldn’t be scared.
Because deep down I know my Heavenly Father loves me,
Even though he might be disappointed in me,
He loves me despite my imperfection, disobedience or sin
As long as I am willing to let him in.
He will always be by my side as a Father, a friend a shield
One who I can depend upon even unto the end,
To share my joy, my sorrow, my worries, my tears,
So tell me friend, why should I fear?
Speaks about a person who has turned from God forgetting all the good God has done, now that he/she is going through a tough time, he/she seeks God but is facing some difficulties but yet God is always there.

oh
holding your hand
would be so beautiful
for a worried soul
such as mine
and we could tear apart
old ghosts like ratted sheets
turning our world into
whatever we thought it was
in our heavenly dreams

I hate myself,
Every time you forget me.
I forget myself.
Just a random one...

it's golden rays
seep from above the clouds
heavenly, almost

like a blanket
the clouds stay above
so close you could touch it
but so far it's unreachable
as if your eyes
were the only ones that could

the silence is reassuring

the night draws nearer
and vividly
I see the beauty
and serenity
around
nature's quiet beauty

In my fantasies,
The dark and deep,
Where fog pools at our feet,
And the cries echo in the distance,
And sigh in defeat.

You wait for me,
Standing in all your glory,
Laying out in all your pride,
You stare me down,
Hot and heavy,
With lust burning in your eyes.

You reach for me,
Fingers stretch,
You groan for me,
With slight hums under your breath.

Your skin meets mine,
The sparks erupt,
It's perfect,
Heavenly even.

You're my muse,
My inspiration,
My reason is you.

You hold my waist,
Nails digging in,
You lean,
Lips pursed,
We kiss,
Gently.

You press,
Harder, harder,
I bite your lip,
Breaking skin,
Breaking everything,
We sin.

Once lived in a heavenly planet
Forced me to jot down some memories
Of the most chilled vibes of mountains
To rejoice the feelings once more

Deep in the land of ice and snow
There surrounded the most steeped mountains though
With a river filled with chilled water
And some huge rocks on riverbed side

Air of there was free from pollution
And was so pure to breath well
That feels like fresh air gave a cheers to breeze
And that made our breath feel like a foggy smoke
All that seems like a heavenly place to live within

The shining golden sun peeping from mountain
With its dazzling rays of sunshine
On the dew drops of grassland
Bring crystal clear droplets all over the land

The chirping birds sang in its sweet rhythms
And all that lovely things
Made pleasant morning sights
Which made our heart warm
Even in the most freezing days

During the winter’s peak
Some years bring frosty snow
And that white snow layered all around
Like a dancing white peacock
Mesmerising a white peahen
To live in its snowy feathers
for life long

During the admiring spring seasons
The flower blossoms everywhere
With varieties of butterflies
And bees wandering here and there
In the most beautiful gardens
Like a daydream of a fairy tale

And the waterfall from mountains
Seems like a white snowy bird
Which flew down with its wings
To sit on the narrow stream of river
To enjoy the taste of fresh water
Makes an everlasting view of life

No wonder how the beauty of nature
Captured our lives so far
And being in love with this nature
Bring lots of loving memories

And that memories of mother nature
Can never fade with decades
Joy of those childhood days
Can never comeback

Nor the happiness among friends
Who are divided so far
Neither does the feeling of lived life
Can be enjoyed
Nor does it can be explained here
With few words

While in the land of blessed nature
There were some most painful part
Many of them lost their loved ones there
And the lost ones became a soul in the sands of riverbed

All that painful memories of loved ones
Became a mourning cry for many bleeding hearts
Which still cannot vanish like a nightmare

But one more chance if got in that heavenly land
Will not be enough to rejoice there
Which gave us the everlasting memories
Once lived in heavenly mountains and enjoyed its vibrant vibes made some everlasting memories in my life
