Crystal Chandelier and an amazing friend!


The Desert of sand filled with thorns

A Rose may not die but it will mourn,

Before you choose to be with me

Take a look, at all that you see


No Mansion with a Crystal Chandelier

Life’s precariousness, we will live in fear,

No dresses for special dances

Life’s Necessities, one in a million chances


I must give up all that I earned

Happiness is all that I yearn,

This decision to give up all

Is to answer my destiny’s call


All I have is standing in front of you

Think, before you say I do,

Into the myriads of miles of Sea

That silent distance, well, that is me!

I must go back a little way to the choice mercies of yesterday; and though all may be dark now, I must light up the lamps of the past; they shall glitter through the darkness, and I will trust in my Lord, till the day break, and the shadows flee away.
