My Love Is Forever And True

The smell of your body, the feel of your skin
has already been making me anticipate on when I can begin.
As I draw you nearer the strength of our passion makes me
shiver within
From this point I could not tell and I didn’t realize it but
I am so in love with you from the point we first began
My feelings for you are oh so strong, finally in your arms
is where I can tell I belong
Now that I found you I can never let you go, leave you or
tear apart you soul
In time you will see my love is forever and true, I will never make you feel down or blue
give me a chance and I will prove my love is forever and true

A Glimmer Of Wonder

When there’s light we smile.

When there’s sun we shine.

But there are so many wonders,

And such a shrivel of time.

The light may make us smile.

The dark may fade our shine.

But the questions leaving us wondering,

Are those small thoughts left behind.

I’ve wondered, dreamed, and cried

I’ve put light in every thought

But every piece of light I miss,

Is that glimmer I never brought.

To Honour Our Land

Fiji is my island home
In this land I’m not alone
Here I stand
Beyond the ocean wide
Once again I’m full of pride

I’m reaching my goal
Yet I’m not alone
Though it’s just a day
But there is only one thing
I ought to say

This land, may be small
Though it has full control
Yet we stand hand in hand
To make Fiji be a better land
To honour again and again
To honour our land

Desensitization

After so long emotions become faint,
extensively burned from each end,
impossible to apply them to anything untaint,
its just no good when all you wanna do is mend,

Before it came,
Sorrow was sorrow,
And pain was pain,
But come tomorrow,
Nothing will be the same!

We don’t say,
what we must not speak,
Forever dreading the day,
When our minds become weak,
and we slip forcing punishment through what we hear,

Yes desensitization can inhibit your judgment,
of what’s irrational or not,
So I’m kindly saying,
Your words don’t mean a thing,
our trust has fallen to rot.

Why Do I Have To Suffer

Why do I have to suffer from his mistakes?
It’s not my fault he wasn’t protected
About two minutes is all it takes.
Those two minutes could have prevented
A lifetime of pain and misery,
I don’t know why these things happen to me
Sometimes I wonder if he and I were meant to be.
Why do I have to suffer?

Just when I thought my life was complete
I received some news that totally shocked me,
He told me that his ex was pregnant so he had to leave.
I told him that if he really loved me he would work it out,
But he said there was no other choice and he had no doubt.
Why do I have to suffer?

Now he’s telling me that everything will be okay,
He said he wants to be with me in a way.
I guess she’s playing games with his mind,
So even if I never get him back
In my heart he will always be mine.
But why do I have to suffer?!?!
