The road ahead

By Bradley Stan

Although I'm sitting here alone
And think of this so clear
I sometimes wonder why we met
Despite the trouble, I don't regret

We all still hope and wonder
For the things we always want
So bad!
But earth is not a perfected place, and so
Our plans are shattered..

There is no creature in this land
No person so perfect
Your beauty,
Your gorgeous appearance, your bright
Is stronger than the sharpest light
Oh special gift!

Despite the pressure from outside
The difficulties, ahead
I hope you will remain
A pillar against the modern tide
A humble rock.

As time is running out tonight
I ask you one last thing
Stay as you are! And know
I'll be your shadow, the distant star
Oh gifted gift!
