Mother

by Tirzah Shams

You are my moonlight in the dark
When I’m drowning, you’re my ark

In every war, you’re my guiding hand
You’re my safety in an unknown land

You have a beauty that surprises all
In the hardest times, you stand tall

You’re hearts of gold, with no doubt
There is nothing I can’t tell you about

There’s not place, in your heart for haters
You don’t fear lovers or traitors

And every moment I want to make you proud
Be just like you, the queen of my crowed

Do you wonder?

by Tirzah Shams

Do you wonder what the world is like
Without happiness and love
Where people go through trauma
And don’t believe in the heavens above

Do you wonder what people think?
When they meet you for the first time ever
When soul mates first lock eyes
Will they be entangled in a trance forever?

Do you wonder when thunder strikes
If it’ll burn down your ground
When you see a person die
If their soul will be lost or found

Do you wonder in an earthquake
If the Earth will eat you alive
When you hear about a bombing
Do you wonder if you’ll survive

Do you wonder in the dark
If you’ll see the light again
When you see someone who suffered
If one day darkness would reign

Do you wonder what it’s like
To be the queen of a nation
Do you wonder if the world is just
A piece of your imagination

All About You

by Tirzah Shams

My feelings for you
Will never come out
They will remain hidden
No one will find out

It will stay in the deepest
Corner of my heart
Like a hidden symbol
Within a piece of art

My love for you will
Forever remain forbidden
And as long as I live
It’ll remain hidden

The shine in your eyes
That only I can see
The care on your face
When you look at me

The plucker of your lips
When you are confused
The smirk on their edges
When you are amused

The gentleness of your hands
When they touch my skin
No sign of the wars
Through which they have been

Do love me?
I would like to unfold
The answer of one question
You never told

Another persons eyes

by Tirzah Shams

You need to see this world around you
With another persons eyes
You need to see this world around you
That every day you despise

You need to learn ,to love, to hope
You need to learn to recognize
You need to see this world around you
With another persons eyes

It’s not what it always looks like
It’s not black and white
You’re not the only one
Who goes through trauma and fright

You’re not the only one for whom
Every day is a fight
You need to see this world around you
With another persons eye

Never to rise up

by Tirzah Shams

The beauty of the moonlight
That’s reflected in your eyes
The love and adoration
As you fell to your demise

Tears streaming down my face
As you kept falling and falling in the dark
Blood streaming down my spine
An injury that would leave a mark

And as you fell I yelled
“Why did you have to go
Why did you jump”
I will never know

And that was that was the moment
When my legs gave up
And I lay there
Never to rise up

Wandering

by Tirzah Shams

They rode the train together
A friendship to last forever

Him a hero, her a nerd
A beautiful story gone unheard

Living a life being unexpected
Feeling like they’re forever rejected

Knowing the life they want to live
Always ready to forget and forgive

For everyone they may be outsiders
But in their hearts are true fighters

And one day they’ll rise to the fame they deserve
Will be give the rewards of the hardships they served

Forever Hidden

by Tirzah Shams

Those cloaked figures clouded my past
Time is going away too fast

I need you to show me the moonlight
Entangled in the darkest night

You taught me to be so strong
What we are is forever wrong

The blood in my veins is yours forever
I’ll always be free when we are together

And till I dream, I dream of you
I love you so much I never knew

But our love is too forbidden
It will remain forever hidden

Emma to Julian

by Tirzah Shams
(Based on The Dark Artifices by Cassandra Clare)

Even when I lost every one I knew
The only thing I thought about was you

And when I lost my mum and dad
You were the only person I had

We’ve been through so much
My only hope was in your touch

We even became orphans together
Doesn’t that mean we last forever

We are partners in battle, soulmates one may say
I confess here I love you, standing in front of you today

We did have moments of sadness
When I was filled with tears and madness

But happiness we did find
You never seemed to ever mind

Our fights were big but love always lasted
Two in a million, perfectly casted

Our love broke the law, we didn’t know it was a curse
We wanted to be forever, but things just got worse

Our Love

For love to be extraordinary
Life doesn’t have to be perfect
Cause I want to be with you
Even if it’s not correct
So give me your heart
As you already have mine
Cause even if you don’t love me
One day you shall be mine
I know I will love you
With a love that shall not die
Until the sun goes cold
And birds do not fly
You always had my heart
You’re the keeper of my soul
And when I am with you
I finally feel whole
