Raouf Reda Poems
A Letter That I Didn’t Send
Dear, For the last few months I was the happiest person on earth Because finding you at the end of this wild road is really worth…
I Am Waiting For Her.
I am waiting for her to lighten my dreams. A Heaven’s gift that will drive to the extremes. It’s written that it’s not good for me to stay alone. And I don’t want to close my self in a sealed zone.
In My Dreams I Saw An Angel
She stole my heart with a blink of an eye that is a fact that I can not deny That I fall in love on this sweet day
Lord Have Mercy.
All of my days, I was searching for you. They told me that I was made from you. And that you created every thing around. Sun, moon, Sea and me.
A Prayer From A Broken Heart
Dear lord lift me up over my sadness Make me strong in front of these crises Calm the storm and give me peace
It’s Only You Who I Love
It had been always you. And you don’t have a clue. My eye kept chasing you
The Clown Is Always Sad
I always hide my tears behind my clown face Because deep inside I know there no better place My aim to make people smile, a smile that is true
God Bless You My Dear Friend
As we have been friends for all of these years We had experienced both happiness & tears You was there for me in my journey
A Lover From The Past!
When I saw her that night I tried to act like I’m aright It was an echo from the past
The Tears Of Warrior
Like a defeated warrior, I stood in the rain Each dropp a symbol, of my devastating pain Showered by Tormented, Hurt by fear
Just know me & see the life I lead Try to listen to my heart beat You’ll not be able to see into the heart of mine
In A Blink Of An Eye!
In a blink of an eye I had to say good bye
Dear Future Son,
Since I was a teenager I thought about my further, I thought about you. I dreamt of having my own family, praying that one day this dream will come true. Although life wasn’t that easy, but I kept the faith inside.
The Thoughts Of A Drunken Loser!
Yesterday I went to a pub to drink a couple of beers I can’t recall last time I did that, I think from years! The music was fine the people where great
It’s really hard for me to admit
There are some things that I regret
Words I wish I’d never said
Stupid decisions that I did
Which took me to a bitter end
I wish I could go back in time
To diminish the curse that’s mine
But it doesn’t matter, I got the sign
When life gets much harder
