Dance of Life

Bold as you alone can be
And quiet in the shade
I don't hear you growing
Nor do I dream of your flying
All your way up to heavens&back is a silent dance
Inerrable taps set irresistible trace
Take me in for a ride
This I feel can be nothing fa├žade

Azavahe

I keep coming back, over and over
I happened to know the path leading home
Where're you and where're you?
Places we've been to keep calling, calling
They keep glowing, I shrinking
Azava he, k'amaso yanjye amukumbuye
Azava he k'umutima wanjye umukumbuye

Yearns&Pins

I'm nowhere in your library, obviously
Nowhere in your gallery
A riddle that stood the test of seasons
Your glorious temple bear not my name
Sir, why, from your songs I draw my inspiration
You are the talk of our village
The muse of our cottage
Yet I know not your visit
Your face is a mystery, only imaginary
Your being everywhere but in my hut is a grievance
In vain have I reached out with my longing hands many a times
Am I too much a hold, sir?

This Must Be It

So this is it?
The thought I've been feeding since day one
Of who would get here first
Of who would upturn this eerie quest
The end I've been dying to begin
This must be it, this must be it

Don't Die Tomorrow

Don't die tomorrow
There are still smiles to sip
Miles to treat
There are still hearts to break.
Don't die tomorrow
There are still nights to love
Lovers to keep
There are still stars to give.
Rather die tonight
There's coffee for company
Poetries to sing
There are wounds needing to heal
