As long

As long as my worn out feet shall hold, I shall stand
As long as my feebleness overpowers me, I shall fight
As long as my foes live, I shall make friends
As long as the fire burns, I shall shape my sword

As long as the fabric spreads, I shall hem
As long as the river flows, I shall sail my raft
As long as the rains pour, I shall collect the run off
As long as this night is, I shall count the stars

As long as this hymn goes, I shall happily play my lyre
As long as this horizon goes, I shall clearly see
As long as this lamp is filled with oil, I shall brightly shine
As long as my heart beats, I shall make it grow bigger

My faith, as small as the mustard seed
And courage, twice my size
As long, as long, as long as the good Lord above wills
I shall I shall I shall

The Feeling

So magical is the spirit
So inspiring is the thought
So calming is the feeling
I am so taken by it
No regrets

Through my bedroom window
As the sun rays take their position
I cannot help but look through them
Focusing my eyes to the distant
And smile. Saying,
‘He brought the sun to me. Again’

Mine is a felicitous morning
The sorrow of yester-day, gone
The embrace all through the night
Did lull the dragons of worry and fear
And although I could not see you
The warm effect, and the comfort. I felt

When they say words cannot express it
True. Words can’t express what I’m feeling
Reason I made a promise
To go to the church up the hill
And sing all those hymns. Because,
I’m happy, as a clam at high wate
