I have never asked for grandiose gestures, nor expensive and luxurious gifts. The tiny things that give me simple, but pure joy need no audience, whether big or small. It only needs to be seen and felt by me, it only needs to be true. Is it?

To be reminded that I am remembered even in the most minute detail is worth more than a bag of diamond rings and delicate strings of pearls. I would honestly shout yes, if you ask for my hand, even with just a ring made of santan flowers.  I am not saying I want no gestures. I am not saying I am apathetic to romance. I only want simple things. I only want you. What about you?

And I want you to understand- that despite all that the eye can see, when people look at me, I am a simple girl with a simple dream. I’ve told you many a time, I want that one thing that I never had. Do you remember?

Let’s, you and I, build a house on a mountain, someplace none can follow. These are the words that my heart is singing. These are the stories my life is living. Do you know them?

Someplace

I jumped the train, then you followed
Let’s go some place none can follow
Hold my hand, look in my eyes
Let’s find that place none can follow

Sing me songs I want to hear
I’ll write you poems of how I feel
Their muted whispers, without a care,
Let’s hide some place none can follow

This tale of old, for one so young
What do you know of the moon and the sun?
Won’t you come away with me still?
‘Cause if we both have the heart, I know we’ll find,
That place none can follow.

Words and Melody are mine. 🙂

Daylight is Waiting

No more excessive justifications
and prolonged
reflections
My eyes will see sunlight
The mood has a fixed a frown
Please turn it upside down
I just need to lean a bit forward
I only need that one step forward

Because outside the wind fills
The empty that is my constant
Outside the warmth is calling
Just look outside the window
The leaves are turning greener
The colors are a lot brighter
Daylight is waiting

I’m leaving the comfort of my home
I’m leaving each familiar room
I won’t glance at the picture frames
I won’t touch the cups and saucers
With a gaze unwavering
I only need to lean a bit forward
I only need that one step forward

The rays are reaching out
slowly creeping
underneath the door
slowly passing
through the glass
daylight is waiting
and I’m running
Oh dayligh
I won’t hide anymore

I wrote this with the intention of making it into a song. The feels of the melody just hasn’t come to me yet. If someone is interested, feel free to comment so we can arrange things.

(I’m pretending to be confident that someone would be interested enough.  #wishfulthinking Hihi.)

Before you leave..

Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye

by Joss Stone

Kiss me each morning for a million years. Hold me each evening by your side.

Sweeten my coffee with a morning kiss. Soften my dreams with your sigh.

Tell me you love me for a million years. And then if it don’t work  out, then you can tell me goodbye.

If you must go, I won’t weep. But just wait a lifetime before you leave, please.

Then if you must go, I won’t tell you no. Just so we can say that we tried.

Tell me you love me for just  a million years.

And then if it don’t work out,

then you can tell me goodbye.

Hindsight’s a-

I guess I wanted you more.

I kept waiting on a reason and a call that never came.
No, I never saw it coming. Something in you must have changed.

All the words unspoken, promises broken, I cried for so long.
Wasted too much time, should’ve seen the signs, now I know just what went wrong.

All the nights we spent, just talking of the things we wanted out of life.
Making plans and dreams together, wish I’d seen, but I was just too blind.

My heart was open, exposed and hoping for you to lay it on the line.
In the end it seemed there was no room for me.
Still, I tried to change your mind.

I guess I wanted you more and looking back now, I’m sure I wanted you more.

But, I don’t need you. I don’t need you anymore.

Wanted You More by Lady Antebellum
