You loved me

im always doubt....u make me sad ...and upset



What is love, but an emotion,

So strong and so pure,

That nurtured and shared with another

All tests it will endure?



What is love, but a force

To bring the mighty low,

With the strength to shame the mountains

And halt time’s ceaseless flow?



What is love, but a triumph,

A glorious goal attained,

The union of two souls, two hearts

A bond the angels have ordained?



What is love, but a champion,

To cast the tyrant… Continue

whenever we part,

know I hold you dearly,

deep inside my heart.

for ...someone...kheili ziod doosed daram...

It was not so long ago

when I thought I'd never meet someone like you.

Wrong was I, thinking I'm in control

Believing I'd never fall.

All my life I thought no one would

melt a heart like mine, a heart so cold,

a heart hardened by the past,

protected by shields so vast.

Slowly I was falling

without even knowing.

Only to find out too late

I have no choice but to accept my fate.

I could dream, I suppose

forever, I could… Continue

In a Lonely moment (translation)

In a lonely moment

 

A moment....

 

Some minutes,

Some hours or more.

 

It’s a moment.....

 

Sky in peace,

Blanketed clouds,

Dreaming stars,

the night asleep.

 

A book reads

Its own lines,

a flute plays

In my veins.

 

Hopes drafting routes – to

Climb the heights,

with future spouse.

 

Tears washes

Dirt of…
