"Behind Closed Curtains"
Behind closed curtains a distant world sleeps,
dreams that awaken, absent memories from the deep.
Street lights expose the shadows, flowers extend their roots,
life widens then it narrows, as dreams dance on the roofs.
Stars performing rituals, giving birth to wishes we make,
avoiding all the obstacles, to grow within our embrace.
Colours of a rainbow, a view like crystal snow,
breathes love into the hollows, lighting up the way to go.
Some pray yet don't believe, some hate but still they love,
confused sometimes deceived, moving forward but never above.
Reflections with no mirrors, conversations without words,
affection wins over sinners, who cursed until they learnt.
That life is more than living, that to die means more to live,
it's much more than just forgiving, it's knowing how to forgive.
We dream of love everlasting, many hearts that beat as one,
sometimes it feels like fasting, as souls hunger for Gods love.
Spirits remain silent, Faith sings from the sky,
for we must be compliant, after all he sacrificed.
For if there's life ever-after, behind those curtains we've drawn,
we'll be opening a new chapter, for Gods will is for one and all.
