Upon The Wind

Release your inner turmoil

Let the emotion seep out of you

Like ink from the pen of a poet

Scribbling out his frustrations and desires

Free the hesitations that hold you back

Let them run wild

Like horses across the plains

Racing towards their freedom

Discharge your dreams upon the wind

Let them climb into the future

Like eagles flying high

Soaring over their lands

Would You Please…

After all these years

I would do anything for you.

Would you do the same for me?

What I need is not easy,

After years it cannot be.

I need you to release my heart

For it has truly become yours.

I need it back for me

Since you don’t need it now,

You probably never did.

But I can’t take the pain anymore,

Of it beating only for you

When yours beats for another.

So please help me stop

This unending pain.

Please free me from this love.
