Shattered ... Broken Trust

So hard to build
So easy to break
You mustn't have known that
But now it's too late

I thought I knew you
I thought you cared
So I confided in you
My secrets, doubts, prayers

But now we've drifted
We've fallen apart
Cause' you've forgotten
What you should keep in your heart

Only know, by the actions
And words you have spoken
Our friendship is over and done
It's my trust that you've broken

When "October" is in air ...

Crispy air and azure skies
High above, a white cloud lies
Bright as newly fallen snow
Oh the joy to those who know October !

Colors bright on bush and tree
Over the weedy swamp, we see
A veil of purple, brown and gold
Thy words have never been told .. October !

Scolding sparrows on the lawn
Rabbits frisking home at dawn
Pheasants midst the sheaves of grain
All in harmony acclaim, October !

Brown earth freshly turned by plow
Apples shine on bended bough
Bins o'erflowed with oats and wheat
And satisfaction reigns complete .. October !

Radiant joy is everywhere
Spirits in tune to the spicy air
Thrill in the glory of each day
Life's worth living when we say .. October !

Tug of War - Practical vs Emotional

Having to stay away from home, How do you think I feel?
Some say it's really hectic, some say it's no big deal
Saying is one thing and living is another
When every small thing about home comes to bother

Miss mom and miss dad
Miss them when things are good or when they go really bad
Miss them when I'm happy or when I'm drowned in tears
Miss them through my phase of overcoming fears

Miss my brother who kned what to do
Anything big or small, to get me through
Never gave a second thought on how things were to be done
All he cared about was how I could have more fun

A very small family, all staying apart
Parents would just want us to come out smart
But success tastes nothing when they aren't around
Only empty happiness all around is found

I want to get back, get back to them and say
I love you Mom and in your arms I want to stay
What will I do with the success without having the family to cherish it
I miss having you around and yes I really miss it

People call it being practical but I call it unfair
Enough of lying in bed with the same white ceiling to stare

I want my dad's lap and my brother's teasing to bother me
I want to get back to being a bird filled with life and is free

A family is what matters the most to me
And that is exactly how I want it to be

Solitariness ... Void of a Confidant

I'm all alone in the depths of despair
I look around but no one's there

No one to give me the comfort I need
No one to listen, no one to heed

I really feel the need for a friend
Someone to stay with me till the end

For I feel that life is slipping away
And there's no tomorrow, only today

Just to tell someone of the sorrows I bear
To enlighten my heart to someone who'll care

But when the night falls and I'm still here alone
I close my eyes to this life of my own

With my very last breath I will whisper goodbye
To no one particular for there's no one to cry

For my passing away so this is really the end
Things could have been different if I'd had a friend
