Taher Shemaly

Child of Innocence

It was but a glance of hope
that I saw in her eyes
About winds on the meadows
and birds in the heights
A ticklish dream of spring
awaited for long amid the lies
O Child of pure innocence
run before the run of times

In the darkness lies there
this heart of guilt and sorrow
Grown up over the agonies
and veins tight and narrow
Mercifulness is so a blessing
but what left of it to follow?
O Child of pure innocence
nap, and yet there is tomorrow

Blabber not O my little
life blabbered enough for me

One Thousand Words

And I could,
list one thousands words,
and one.
About things,
that I do like eternally,
about my one.
But then though,
who shall be listening,
to that sound?
When my flirts go,
all over the world of wonder,
and you're never found.

And I,
whenever I will,
receive the heart.
Courage in need,
when love does lead,
in times we're apart.
Then you should know,

Rose Of August

A soldier with heart in hand
A lonely woman with no one for a stand
Things just happen in this life afore
People just live and some just lived before
But a tear coming out of thee
It is indeed a tragedy
O ye, Rose of August Night

Damned let it be I say
That broke thy heart in such a play
Thy petals of that seldom beauty
Nothing for them, even gold in bounty
Let thy crown be higher than those of queens
Of lands seen and those behind scenes
Comparable not, O ye Rose of August night

Don't lose that tear my heart in beat
Heavens or hell I shall bring no matter how heat
Broken hearts can be mended with care
But my heart to whom shall it go in moments of scare

Lebanon IV

Yes, like a glancing star above me
I see and watch the glory of heavens
when they meet the earth with a smile
Indeed, it never had come to me
that I will ever see the beautiful sky
or would ever run again for a free mile

how breathless, how hopeless
surely I'm here tonight
to celebrate the green cedar
and the red ribbons
from below, from above
in such a stormy weather

Baalbek with its highest glory
shall hover over and shall see
the living Libanus with its fury
quake the quake and knock down
stand up Libanus here life will come
in the midst of all the false jury

Left Community

they say you broke the law
they said you were against God
no place for the lefties
no place for the different road

join us or leave us
enemy but not a friend
seems it was my mistake
or seems I'm the one who made

look to the mirror
for God's sake look to the mirror
the left is right and differents are same
and what seems right is just left
do you call it wrong for the same
but seems no reasons are left

from right to left
and from left they write
by God's creation that it was

O Father

Thus, upon the ground did my body walk
and across the lands did it roam and talk
but O father of my tearing eyes tell me now
what happened to the earth and my old folk

Did my heart astray alone in the darkest way
or did my humble soul denied to remain and stay
but O father of my crying heart tell me then
what happened to the earth and the old way

I see as if my eyes got dropped down on the cheek
or it may be like my sorrows and agony reaching a peak
but O father of my broken back in the dusty past
what happened to the earth that I used to seek

By my own hands my blood did I share freely
in the tubs of wisdom in the rage of the daily
but O father where did my blood now astray
what happened to the earth of the lovely

I Left Apart

Over that fresh green grass
A sweet face did say to me with hush
O me handsome lad, will ye go apart
From the dear green land of Ireland
Though I promised not to
But fortune decided to
For me to break the vow
And from the dear ol' isle I did part

And on that ship I went over
For fortune to dig with me shovel
Leaving all that sweet green
And dreaming of money's stream
Behind the ocean so wide
Putting a shamrock by me side
To somewhere I don't have to hide
And the ship from the dear isle did part

Limerick, Corcaigh and Donegal
Connemara, Tara and the all

Let Go The Passion

memories come and go,
my rocking chair work out the flow.
Sweet fire keep the cold heart warm,
away from blurry past and the storm.

Sweet child she was, so,
crawling here and there and go.
I remember when settled in my arms,
that smile, ever full of charms.

Let go the passion, man,
this is not your track or way.
Let go the passion, man,
no rerun of times or replay.

Growing up so fast now,
spreading love by the vow.
Hatred didn't know this place,
that lies inside her with the grace.

The Weather

Weather, O weather, did you arrive or will you ever
whether your spring is here or the winter, as ever
My heart lived it to the utmost, in agony however
thus, come or go, sweet or bitter, or just whatsoever
Useless to pass life with you, moron to be or a clever
O weather of memories, to forget you I shall do, never

And when the melodies play amid the noises of music
shall I count the years when I became healthfully sick
Large is the space under this weather, but of many a brick
and freedom is within your reach but shall I sacrifice my neck?
O weather of wonders, corrupted my life with just a flick
away or near, with peace and fear, my mind you did kick

Bring your roses and blosoms, or the dust of age
fearsome shall not be, and there shall I be on a stage
When the applause raise up, that shall be my own wage
and certainly, away from you I am going to break the cage
So stop the seduction, and the calls of love on a new page
here is my way up to the hill, whether or not I am a sage

Past Tense

long, long time ago
in the past tense of my life
there was once a rosey rose
with a beauty sharper than a knife
spoiled by every dropp of rain
on her petals so reddish as blood
playful in such childish vain
though never she had to leave her bud

day and night are leaving
but the rose didn't move
and here I'm sleeping
hoping by the morrow
I would get a move

the wisdom it says by virtue
this rose shall live and live along
as long the sun is singing golden
and the rain is playing its own song
but in case the light becomes so dim
