Wanderers

A wanderer he is
With a guitar in his hand
A free bird that flighs high
on his dreams
And he longs across the ocean
There where she is

A wanderer she is
The poems she writes
She hears melodies behind
them
And on the other shore
She longs across the ocean
There where he is

Wanderers they are
He plays her strings
She writes the words
in his heart
Free birds that dream
that soon the ocean
will be bridged

Once It Flows, It Flows

And I walk along the river
Where you should have walked too
Next to me there is the water now
Which I cannot hold, but it flows
The river is like sadness
Where does it start
Where does it end
Once it flows, it flows

The sun burns on my face
Like my heart burns for you
Even the birds don’t fly today,
but they walk
on an empty riverbank
And I find the freedom in my footsteps
My hope in my heart
And once I walk, I walk

Lost Lovers – Prayer To St. Anthony Of Lisbon

St. Anthony, there are two lovers
Who love each other
like nothing else in the world
He is her sun, she is his rose
Though they are wandering
And can’t find their way
back home

Please, St. Athony
Since you are the protector
of the lost and the lovers
Bring them back
to where they belong
and let them find each other
in one another’s arms

Dancing In The Dark

Into the dark we fall
The black hole seems deep
and endless
We cannot see
what is behind
or in front

If all is dark
Let’s dance, my love
Our hands are our eyes
Our feet are our ears
that hear the music
And will move

Hold me close
Your body to mine
will fill the void
will clear the sky
We’ll be the white letters
on a black page
We’ll build a world
And I’ll dance you
you’ll dance me
back into the light

Warriors Of Love And Light

A wind of turmoil is blowing around
and dragons of fear and sadness
are near.
Anytime.
And you wonder
How to fight
or is it better to hide
And not to show your face
No more.
Who is the enemy
and who can be trusted
Is this real
Or are we living a dream

My dear, my hand.
Feel how it holds yours always
I am with you
You are with me
We fight the dragons together
Warriors of love and light are always tested
I have your heart
and you have mine
And no dragon can come in between

The Queen Of The Birds

Look at the peacock
She is the queen of the birds
Elegantly she dances around

Sing her your songs
Court her kingly
Give her the crown of your heart

And then proudly
she’ll show you her feathers
Her truest colours
and all her beauty
is and will be yours

Girl By The Castle

Oh girl by the castle
Are your tears falling down again
Your heart too much of a burden
And your fairy dreams don’t let you in
Because your king is not at home?

Oh girl, looking at the clouds,
the hills and the river down there
While wishing for the stars
and a flying horse to ride

Wipe away your tears
and be his queen
Straighten your back
Rise in love
The castle is yours
For your light
is needed in the world

Eternal Lovers

Many lives we lived
And many times we died
and were reborn again
In different places
In different shapes
But we always made this promise
to meet on the other side
And to look for one another
In heaven or on earth
To find and to recognize
by the beat of our hearts
by the mirror of our eyes
by the knowing in our souls
For we are eternal lovers
And not even death or life
can tear us apart

Hurricane

The strong wind is coming
He came from the west
and crossed the ocean
to ashore Portuguese land
And the rain is falling
The branches are bending
All is in motion
The wind wants
and I want you

Be as the hurricane
And blow fiercely,
blow strongly,
blow loudly
your way here to me

Girl By The River

There is a girl on the riverbank
And she waits for him
Her gaze longs
in the distance
There where the river flows
into the ocean
Far beyond her eyes can reach
But her heart knows where to look

She watches the ships that sail by
And counts time
While her tears drop one by one
into the water
The river carries them away
and brings them to the ocean
Far beyond her eyes can see
But her tears know where to flow

Precious Rose

The rose of your dreams
that is given to you

Water her with tenderness
Shower her with words of love
every day
Embrace her with your light
Let her blossom in you, by you
Be her thorns and protect her
Sing her the song of your heart
Nourish her with gentle hands
and sweet touch
Like no one else
than you could do

And love her madly,
love her preciously
Look at her
She will feed herself by your gaze
As her beauty is meant
for your eyes only

The Path To Your Heart

I walk the path to your heart
And see the rivers of tears you cried
How the pain in your chest got fluid
and flowed from your eyes

I see you heart broken
and lost in a dark forest
All the dreams you dreamed
to keep your head up high

And you’ve been so lonely
Though there was this longing
A flame that somehow burns
inside your chest
and that kept you going

Your feet towards a horizon
but you couldn’t see
and you didn’t know
But you walked and you walked
And you looked and you hoped
You created, you laughed and you cried

Your heart so vulnerable
So easy to touch
So you took the stones
and you built a wall
No one could come close
no more

But you were lonely
and you still had your dreams
And I see your struggle,
I see your pain
Your tears a river
that flow from my eyes
As I walk the path to your heart
I walk the path to mine

Fragile Hearts

Fragile are our hearts
Now love has awakened
them and has opened doors
The world outside is big
and the wind is blowing
in our face

But we can’t go back to sleep
no more
As we’ve heard the call to love
And we’ve seen
the truth in our eyes
We have a lot to give
and have a lot to gain

Fragile are our hearts, yes
But stronger do we grow
as fragile hearts are
of those who are brave
enough to face the wind
since they are rooted
in love

Dawning colours

The moonless night is dark and cold
Lonely are the hours without light
When everything is black
With no blanket to cover old wounds
But my dear, do not fear
Although the moon seems lost
Just look at the stars
and know, in the dawn we’ll find
our colours back

You Have All Of Me

How can you ever lose me
as you have all of me

You have my eyes
that wish to see you
You have my lips
that want to kiss you
You have my hands
that write about you
and that want to stroke
every part of your skin

You have my words
that embrace all yours
even the words you have not yet spoken
You have my mind
that thinks all the time about you
You have my time
as it is consumed by you
You have my always
as it has been always you

And if you would ever lose me
I would find me back with you

From The Rooftops

I could shout from the rooftops
And let the birds sing it
Send my messengers around
Let the sun declare it in the sky
And let the air hum it, vibrate it
Let the flowers bloom it
Bring it into the world
by words of poetry
by dancing footsteps
So everyone will know
That I love you
And how much my heart bursts

©RoseGirl2018

The Most Beautiful Poem

Everywhere you are
Wherever I go
You are always around,
my fairy man
I am always with you
You are always within
No days without you
No place where I cannot find you
Your presence surrounds me,
infuses me
As the most beautiful poem
sung by the wind
And written in our hearts

©RoseGirl2018

On A Dutch Island

Here on a Dutch island
the sun is shining
again now the storm
has passed
I build a bridge of words
to your heart
and craft my float of love

And with each of my steps
I make little earthquakes
So even you on your island
far away and overseas
will be moved by my heart

©RoseGirl2018

Diving

The Dutch sea seems endless
Emptiness stretches
in front of me
Waves come my way
And then suddenIy
I stand with my feet
in the water

And I could drown now
In my longing for you
In my fears of a love
we do not control

Take my hand and please
dive now with me
What else could we do
The water is everywhere
And we both lost our smiles
Before the sea takes us
Let us take the sea

Awake

Are you awake, just like me
Do you stare into the dark
And let clouds pass by
through your head

Do you see mountains
arising, too big to climb yet
And then you dream
with your eyes wide open
about clear blue skies
and you have this burning longing
inside your heart?

I am awake, just like you
And I stare into my dreams
And if I stare long enough
I see you above the mountains
in a clear wide sky
flying there with me

Sunflower

And in a field of waving grass
A flower grows
First yet shyly though
As she learns to dance
to the sighs of the wind
She discovers her gift
to blossom

Graciously she rises,
waves her way up
and opens her heart
to let the rays of light
come in

To reunite
and to merge
with her beloved, the sun

Candy Words

Grandmother,
Can we go back in time
When you were still here
When all was fine
As long as I was with you

When you saw me
always pure, always beautiful
How you adored me,
bought me candy
Told me sweetest words
and would like to give me
everything I wished for

Can I sit with you, grandmother
Can I lay my heavy head on your lap
Will you stroke my hair
With tender, wrinkled hands that smell of smoke

And then tell me that it will be fine,
’cause that’s my wish
That you love me, that he loves me
-please tell me all your sweetest candy words
That you still see my inner diamond shine
And then pray my candy man
here back with me

©RoseGirl2018

Lead Me

Oh my man of beauty
How tired are my feet
How exhausted are my thoughts
As my dreams keep me out of my sleep
And my fears wake me up

I’ve been so strong
I’ve stood my ground
But now my legs are shaking
And with the tears
hope flows out of my eyes

In this dance we are doing
Can I fall into your arms
Will you take the lead
And I will follow
Wherever you may go
When you’ll do your steps
My feet will then do mine
Let me lean on your chest
Let me rest in your heartbeat
And slowly but steady
we’ll make the dancefloor ours

The Day The King Returns

Once there were a king and a queen
that had seen the light
in one another’s eyes
But then the light got too bright
to look at
And the dark appeared even darker

So the king rode his horse and left
the kingdom
And went on a quest
to defeat the dragons
While the queen freed the land
from fears and turmoil

But her heart kept burning and longing
For her king to return to their sacred land
His ring still on her finger
Every day she climbed the tower
to look for a sign on the horizon

And so the days passed by
And the queen cried her tears
She fought her battles
She grew stronger
But she never gave up
on the one who belongs
to her heart

And then one day in the distance
a man comes closer
It is the day the queen has prayed for
Ever since the day
the king left the kingdom

And the flag is raised
And the fire is burning
The glasses are filled
Happy tears are flowing

And as their eyes find back
one another’s light
They merge in each other’s arms
Their flames shine as one
and light up the kingdom

©RoseGirl2018

On My Cloud

I climb on my cloud
And I look down
If I can find you somewhere, my fairy man
Are you already coming
Are you doing fine
Is it your heart
that still weights too heavy
That prevents you from flying
Are you too wounded
from the battle?

Trust your wings, my fairy man
And I will trust your heart
I’ll send birds and angels
to accompany you
So you can climb here on my cloud
very soon

©RoseGirl2018

A Hand On My Heart

Lay your hand on my heart
Feel how it beats for you
How it pulses love
Through my veins
And how it’s keeping me alive
and strong

I lay my hand on your heart
And I make a vow
To always be at your side
You will never be alone
no more

And if you feel lost
I know how we can find you
If you feel you want to hide
Please hide yourself in me

And if you have worries
I will blow them from your mind
And if you feel scared
You can seek a shelter in me

And if you want to run
I’ll hold your hand
And we’ll run together
For the hills or even further

Lay your hand on my heart
I lay my hand on yours

And then just feel

Flying Bike

I ride my bike
Under a clear, nightly sky
The stars surround me
The moon is behind me
She’s got my back

And I am weightless
As I glide
effortlessly
over the roads here
in this town

I almost fly
It’s like I go to you now
And I could cycle
miles and miles and miles
Towards the west
A smile on my face
Stars before my eyes

Is it the moon
Or is it you
That fires me
Through the Dutch
nightly sky
