Never turn back

The one who leaves , leaves a presence ten times bigger than himself.

You have to be strong and look straight the way, never turn back, never.

His eyes will be so big and bright, ten times better than the real ones.

The way he smiled you’ll think was charming, in a way it never was.

So, leave the ghosts in peace and treat yourself right, as you’re here, now, flash and blood.

You’ve got to be your best friend ’cause no one in this life has been so close to you as you are .

Lilly was left alone

Lilly said she was alone and her mother does not respond.

Poor little baby, so lonely and fragile, where has your daddy been all this time?

She starts crying, so miserably, my heart’s breaking in sorrow!

Don’t be so sad honey, we’ll search for somebody

who can look and take care of you.

Then she starts changing: so tall and aging,

the hairs gray, her lips in a straight line.

She seems so furious, with angry eyes..

Don’t tell me lies, don’t even try,

I know your game, I’m not a babe,

I’m your inner child, being brutalized,

You ignore me all the time and never give a try

to understand my needs to satisfy.

I fall flesh and blood,I feel alone,

my mum does not respond.

Where has my daddy been all his time?

I’ll be a river, so I’ll learn

Goodbye sweet angel, goodby my little dream,

one day I’ll learn what happened, so I’ll be free,

I try not to think, I’m trying to be good,

’cause I have to love, you know,

‘ cause they’re what I live for.

Goodbye my last hope,

my faith in believing,

my needs and my soul.

It’s me, for sure,

I’ll learn to be a river,

flowing from the mountain top,

taking the good and the bad,

carrying them through the way

and at the end of the journey,

I’ll free bag and baggage in the sea,

’cause I’ll have learnt my lesson.
