Yesterday, Today

Smiling-Girl

Yesterday you looked into my eyes
And said, “You are special”
I thought about it and told,
“I don’t think, I am special
But I want to be special for you”
You insisted, “You are special”

Today, I decided
To be special for you
But do I have anything to offer
Except a heart full of love
A friendship to last a lifetime
And a promise to be there
As long as you let me be!

For myself

girl alone

My smile no longer belongs to you
My tears will no longer fall for you
If I smile, I smile for myself
If I cry, I cry for myself

Once this heart used to beat for you
Now it is mine and can’t beat for you
You can believe all you want to believe
Ignore my tears and pain it bears
Without looking inside my heart
How much it hurts and for whom it hurts

This world can hurt me and hate me;
Malign me and make me miserable;
Drive me to madness and poison all around
I will survive, if I have the wish to survive
Or I may be, decide it is enough
And enjoy the ride to another place
