Magic in The Mind

This poem is based on the happiness in the world of fantasy. A refuge from the trials and tribulations of life.

Hold me close, don’t let go,

My heart yearns for happiness and love to go.

Whisper in my ear,

The encouragement I need to hear.

With you around, I have nothing to fear,

For I know I always have you in my heart right in here.

Oh!! for the loneliness, that feels ever so harsh,

Oh!! for the pain which to the heart does rush.

When you are in solitude, you find your heart and the inner realms of your mind,

The sweetest honey that life can ever find.

When you are here, I have a friend,

To walk together and smile without an end.

To go distant places,

To live by a lake.

To forget life’s hurtful races,

Where love and friendship can be fake.

My mind is the magic where all dead come alive,

My mind is the abode with no pain, trouble and strife.

Where love is painfully genuine,

Where the heart is without a crack.

Where your world loves you for what you really are,

Where you are the stage’s most brightest shining star.

The world of fantasy, my greatest gift I could ever find,

My love, my refuge a place that’s one of a kind.

Where happiness and joy with eternity does bind,

This is my anthem, my Magic in the Mind.

Immortal Break of Dawn

This poem has been written for a very close friend of mine who recently passed away. Being a famous personality, it written in first person about the first experiences of the after-life….
It also has the twinge of wanting what he cannot go back to but at the same time telling people that he cared for to be happy for him as he has found his rest…

Sunset falls on the chapter called life,

A relief from ridicule, trouble, pain and strife.

A ray of hope,

On an immortal dawning day,

A tender loving fragrance,

That takes my breath away.

No tears, no pain,

No strings to the wretched wings of fame.

Life is looked upon as a new deathly game,

To those who loved me and called out my name.

Oh!! For that touch,

So to feel that true kiss.

Oh!! for that loving hand,

To gently help me stand.

All gone in a flash,

Those feelings and memories worth more than cash.

Like a lowly bird flapping into the sunset,

Like a tiny ripple becoming a giant wave.

Don’t cry for me and don’t be upset,

For I’ve found happiness found eternal happiness the Creator gave.

Smile for me for I’m now at peace,

Dance for me for I am now at rest.

Gone afar is my comet of pain,

Gone in a twinkle my salty tears and fame.

From dust I was born,

To dust I have returned.

Like a brightly lit star searching for a new morn,

I have a new life in my Immortal Break of Dawn.
