TANAGA

Reviving a long gone poetry

1.

tik tak tik tak says the clock
bring me fortune, bring me luck
saw a lady on the rock
i guess they call this lovestruck

2.

my shoe lace keeps untangling
bought new one yet recurring
my heart too needs tightening
to keep my love from falling

3

i need not search for the tune
that would fit my songs in June
beatles and crickets would croon
the best tune i heard this June.

4.

these hands were meant to caress
yet love i failed to address
what hope could there be but woes
i longed for love not sorrows.

5.

to understand your triumphs
is to understand defeats.
to understand your sorrows
is to understand your joys.
