Oh fears echo in hollow caves
my little ship sails in storms,
I hear my thumping heartbeats
blinking a hopeful soothing song.
Azure streams of magnificence
adorn sparkling fountains,
a mellow breathing to sprout
to revive my garden of ecstasy.
There's a joy bubbling courage..
The restless waves of paranoia
calmed down by blooming pulses,
hyacinth seeds brewing with wind
caressed in brisking serenade.
A symphony of beguile birds
from a distant shore somewhere
showers healing drops of elixir
on wilting vineyard of agony.
There's a joy pouring hope..
I fly like a newborn albatross
over stormy seas I survive,
my weariness in blissful aurora
melting memories of melancholy.
How chrysanthemum blooms again
behind lilac curtains at dusk,
my dreams now blush in silence
unfurling nervous sapphire petals.
There's a joy blooming with love..
I plant moments of velvet lullabies
beyond my receding anxious walls,
gracious ballads of generosity
sprinkled upon me from heaven.
The world plagued with malady
draped in veils of forgiveness,
divine fingers touch the tendrils
growing in dulcet meadows.
There's a joy unveiling kindness..
That joy lives in me,
I share it with the world
it leaps and grows freely..
