Beyond the Clouds

The sun has come and sadly set

Nearly four hours ago

Clouds have slammed shut the night light

Pushing out the full moon’s glow

Stars are waiting to sail their shine

Though the darkness has prevailed

Breaking through above the clouds

With their bright lights unveiled

Now the clouds are burned away

The moon and the stars share

There’s nothing more beautiful

Or nothing that can compare

Emptiness Prevails

Unfurling my sailsUnfurling The Sails
Winds to calm my heart
Emptiness prevails

My wet brow is pale
Not good for a start
Unfurling my sails

Wanting for an ale
Look upon my chart
Emptiness prevails

Why the wind curtails
Keeping us apart
Unfurling my sails

Praying for strong gales
For love I must part
Emptiness prevails

I just can not fail
The tears start to smart
Unfurling my sails
Emptiness prevails
