Giving The Angels Their Wings

Poem By Ave Lilik

Giving the angels their wings
Is not as easy as it seems,
For letting them to fly
Empty will our nest be.
Still, keeping them locked by
Happy never can we be,
For we will not only cry
When seeing tears coming out of their eyes.

She Never Wears High-Heels

She never wears high-heels
She doesn't put on lipsticks
She has no care for her look
But she stands her ground.

Candle Of Seconds

Now that I lit thee:
Thee shall melt
Spread thy scent
to embrace me.

'Come Near Me My Child'

'Come near me my child',
the old Ocean whispered to me,
and I fell -swimming greedily-
in its embrace.

Frozen Memory

What is this rush
I feel in me
Do I get a blush
there in memory?

How Would I Take Thee?

How would I take thee?
-upon my journey?
With pictures to see
-confirming our history-
