IF YOU FORGET ME

13260156_1025451900841240_9111607084521092737_n

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats
that sail
toward those isles of yours that wait for me.

Well, now,
if little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you little by little.

If suddenly
you forget me
do not look for me,
for I shall already have forgotten you.

If you think it long and mad,
the wind of banners
that passes through my life,
and you decide
to leave me at the shore
of the heart where I have roots,
remember
that on that day,
at that hour,
I shall lift my arms
and my roots will set off
to seek another land.

But
if each day,
each hour,
you feel that you are destined for me
with implacable sweetness,
if each day a flower
climbs up to your lips to seek me,
ah my love, ah my own,
in me all that fire is repeated,
in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
my love feeds on your love, beloved,
and as long as you live it will be in your arms
without leaving mine.

Fighting God

You promised to take care of me like a new cherished bride I cling to it, waiting until at the point of suicide now your expectations and my anger collide because your blessings seem to always find a place to hide I try to be my own guide then you caution me and call it pride very little, you want me to decide and you say I’ll be okay by just being on your side I’m tired and have kept all these talk aside following my own path and taking my ride my self belief has beaten faith landslide everything about you in me must suffer a genocide your rules and ordinances, no more will I abide if serving you comes with trials then I wish my loyalty had long died and the dividends of my worship to you, just divide Lord God! Now I know twas an uneasy stride now I understand, your blessings and my discipline must coincide now I’ve seen that your love is so high and wide and hating you is like becoming the voluntary victim of a homicide I said you do not care, please Lord, I lied Your ways are mysterious indeed You searched my heart and all you saw was greed because only my desires and blindness I feed and you knew among the wheat, I’ll be a weed. Despite I, not taking heed You were still patient and ever ready to lead You never gave me what I wanted nor stick to my timing but at the appointed time, lavished me with all I need while watering my entire efforts’ seed. Thank you heavenly father! Leaving your presence, I now forbid and serving you wholeheartedly is henceforth my utmost deed.

HELP ME FORGIVE

5521053_f260
When rage and fury overwhelm my heart,
It’s time to look to God’s own Holy Word.
I search the Bible for His good advice;
My will to His commands must be deferred.

In Romans God reveals His love for me;
In all things God works only for my good;
He gives me blessings I can’t understand;
I’d be peaceful if I’d do the things I should.

Jesus forgave so much; why then can’t I?
I want to mold my life after His own.
I pray, I try, but my sinful nature wins;
Lord, help me, I can’t do this thing alone.

In Colossians, I read about the peace of Christ;
Oh, how I long to feel it in my heart.
All I have to do is to forgive,
But Lord, it seems I don’t know where to start.

I need to walk a mile in the other’s shoes;
They’re doing what they think they have to do.
I know some problems are blessings in disguise,
But Lord, sometimes I feel so doggone blue.

Ephesians says “forgive as the Lord forgave you;
Get rid of anger and every form of malice.”
I’d love to just let go and release it all,
But upon my heart is a wound that’s become a callus.

I’ll keep praying, trying, Lord, no matter what;
I’m determined to let go and relinquish blame;
Some day, I’ll say, and be truly sincere:
“I forgive it all in Jesus’ precious name.”

(Romans 8:28, Colossians 3:13, Ephesians 4:31)

When Jesus Christ was Born

baby-jesus-mary-joseph-by-dewey 
Stars have never told a lie when wise men look unto the sky.
Messages from God on high, of happiness his angels cry,
Soon dawns a blessed morn.
Wise men travel through a land 
with stately camels over sand,
Their caravan majestically grand
When Jesus Christ was born.

Shepherds watching over sheep, baby lambs they safely keep.
Some of them were fast asleep on a mountain rough and steep,
Soon dawns a blessed morn.
An Angel to these men appear
Saying they should have no fear
For the Christ child is now near,
When Jesus Christ was born.

To Bethlehem they journey long, Joseph with his love so strong,
Mary with child had done no wrong; the baby did to God belong
Soon dawns a blessed morn.
This baby comes to save from sin
No rooms were found in any Inn
A stables all they found for him
When Jesus Christ was born.

A star shone brightly overhead, lighting up this humble shed,
A lowly manger for his bed, the joyful news had quickly spread
When dawned that blessed morn.
Here wise men came and gifts did bring
Shepherds bowed to their new King
Mankind rejoices while angels sing
When Jesus Christ was born.

GOODBYE MY LOVER

Did I disappoint you or let you down?
내가 당신을 실망시키거나 낙담시켰나요?
Should I be feeling guilty
내가 죄책감을 느껴야 하나요,
or let the judges frown?
날 못마땅하게 내버려 둬야 하나요?
‘Cause I saw the end before we’d begun,
왜냐면 우리가 시작하기전에 난 끝을 보았기 때문이죠,
Yes I saw you were blinded and I knew I had won.
그래요, 난 사랑에 눈먼 당신을 보았고, 난 내가 승리한줄 알았어요.
So I took what’s mine by eternal right.
그래서 난 불변의 권한으로 당신을 가졌죠.
Took your soul out into the night.
그날밤 당신의 정신을 가져갔죠.
It may be over but it won’t stop there,
우리 사랑이 끝날순 있지만, 내 사랑은 멈추지 않을꺼에요
I am here for you if you’d only care.
당신이 관심만 가지면 난 당신을 위해 여기 있을꺼에요.
You touched my heart you touched my soul.
당신은 나의 마음과 정신을 어루만져줬었죠.
You changed my life and all my goals.
당신은 내 인생을 바꿨고, 나의 모든 목표를 바꾸었어요.
And love is blind and that I knew when,
그리고 사랑에 눈이 멀었단걸 난 알아요,
My heart was blinded by you.
난 당신에게 눈이 멀었었죠.
I’ve kissed your lips and held your head.
난 당신의 입술에 키스를 했고, 당신의 머리를 감싸안았었죠.
Shared your dreams and shared your bed.
당신의 꿈과 잠자리를 함께 했었죠.
I know you well, I know your smell.
난 당신을 잘 알아요, 당신의 체취도
I’ve been addicted to you.
난 당신에게 빠졌죠.
Goodbye my lover.
잘가요 나의 사랑.
Goodbye my friend.
잘가요 나의 친구여.
You have been the one.
하나뿐인 존재였어요.
You have been the one for me.
당신은 나에게 하나뿐인 존재였어요.
Goodbye my lover.
잘가요 나의 사랑.
Goodbye my friend.
잘가요 나의 친구여.
You have been the one.
하나뿐인 존재였어요.
You have been the one for me.
당신은 나에게 하나뿐인 존재였어요.
I am a dreamer but when I wake,
난 몽상가에요 하지만 내가 깼을때,
You can’t break my spirit – it’s my dreams you take.
당신은 나의 정신을 부술 순 없어요, 당신이 가져간건 나의 꿈이였어요.
And as you move on, remember me,
그리고 당신이 떠날때 나를 생각해요,
Remember us and all we used to be
우리의 사랑을 기억하고, 우리가 어떻게 사랑했는지를 기억해요
I’ve seen you cry, I’ve seen you smile.
난 당신이 우는것도 봤고, 당신이 웃는것도 봤어요.
I’ve watched you sleeping for a while.
당신이 잠드는것도 지며봤어요.
I’d be the father of your child.
난 당신 아이의 아버지가 되었을꺼에요.
I’d spend a lifetime with you.
평생을 함께 했을테죠.
I know your fears and you know mine.
난 당신의 두려움을 알고, 당신은 나의 두려움을 알죠.
We’ve had our doubts but now we’re fine,
우린 한때 우리의 사랑을 의심도 했지만 지금은 괜찮아요,
And I love you, I swear that’s true.
그리고 당신을 사랑해요, 진심으로.
I cannot live without you.
난 당신없이 살 수 없어요.
Goodbye my lover.
잘가요 나의 사랑.
Goodbye my friend.
잘가요 나의 친구.
You have been the one.
하나뿐인 존재였어요.
You have been the one for me.
당신은 나에게 하나뿐인 존재였어요.
Goodbye my lover.
잘가요 나의 사랑아.
Goodbye my friend.
잘가요 나의 친구여.
You have been the one.
하나뿐인 존재였어요.
You have been the one for me.
당신은 나에게 하나뿐인 존재였어요.
And I still hold your hand in mine.
아직 당신의 손을 잡고 있어요.
In mine when I’m asleep.
내가 잠들때 말예요.
And I will bear my soul in time,
그리고 내 정신을 지탱할꺼에요.
When I’m kneeling at your feet.
내가 당신에게 무릎을 꿇을때.
Goodbye my lover.
잘가요 나의 사랑아.
Goodbye my friend.
잘가요 나의 친구여.
You have been the one.
하나뿐인 존재였어요.
You have been the one for me.
당신은 나에게 하나뿐인 존재였어요.
Goodbye my lover.
잘가요 나의 사랑.
Goodbye my friend.
잘가요 친구여.
You have been the one.
하나뿐인 존재였어요.
You have been the one for me.
당신은 나에게 하나뿐인 존재였어요.
I’m so hollow, baby, I’m so hollow.
난 공허해요, 난 공허해요.
I’m so, I’m so, I’m so hollow.
난 너무나, 너무도 공허해요.
I’m so hollow, baby, I’m so hollow.
난 너무나, 너무도 공허해요.
I’m so, I’m so, I’m so hollow.
난 공허해요, 난 공허해요.

-James Blunt- Goodbye My lover-

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

To My Mother

Mums and Babies

Because I feel that, in the Heavens above,

The angels, whispering to one another,
Can find, among their burning terms of love,
None so devotional as that of “Mother,”
Therefore by that dear name I long have called you—
You who are more than mother unto me,
And fill my heart of hearts, where Death installed you
In setting my Virginia’s spirit free.
My mother—my own mother, who died early,
Was but the mother of myself; but you
Are mother to the one I loved so dearly,
And thus are dearer than the mother I knew
By that infinity with which my wife
Was dearer to my soul than its soul-life.
