The canvas

I want the new canvas of the day to look really good and thus I start in the morning with a grateful mood: with strokes of colour, soft and sweet pastel I want to make a superb and pleasing aquarelle The heart, with a good intention, adds a few red flowers But oh what happens…

I really Don’t Know

  But when I got to know you, I let my heart unbend. I couldn’t help past memories that would only make me cry I had to forget my first love and give love another try So I’ve fallen in love with you and I’ll never let you go I love you more than anyone…

The Seeds of Love

I sowed the seeds of love, it was all in the spring, In April, May, and June, likewise, when small birds they do sing; My garden’s well planted with flowers everywhere, Yet I had not the liberty to choose for myself the flower that I loved so dear. My gardener he stood by, I asked…

Loss of My Father

When I am dead

  When I am dead, my dearest,   Sing no sad songs for me; Plant thou no roses at my head,   Nor shady cypress tree: Be the green grass above me   With showers and dewdrops wet; And if thou wilt, remember,   And if thou wilt, forget. I shall not see the shadows,…

Nobody Knows

  Nobody knows it’s empty, The smile that I wear. The real one is left behind in the past Because I left you there… Nobody knows I am crying. They won’t even see my tears. When they think I am laughing, I wish you were here… Nobody knows it’s painful. They think that I am…

The Silence Of The Snow

The night sky is a dull grey white. An opaque dust sheet floats so light Upon the roofs and lamps and cars. It settles so softly like falling stars. It sneaks in crevices and onto window sills. Piles up in soft layers over roads and hills, Weighs down branches, envelopes bark, Skips and flutters across…

The Love Of My Life

To the love of my life though fate never allowed me to make you my wife. When we met so many years ago it was love at first sight that I know. I loved you so much and for only you I cared but with you those feelings I never shared. Then I learned for…
