Rose Of The Heart

The sun has left me
Behind
In the dark
In this cold night
Under the stars
The moon’s silver light
That shines upon me
The roses around me
That blossom by the love
The air is filled with
The scent of summer
So far
Yet so close
You are
Somewhere
On the world’s other side
Where the sun has rised
The light is shining
How could I be sad
For the sun that left me
When it only
left my eyes here
To illuminate your day?
When this moon
that I watch
Reflects the light
Of the sun you see
In your bright sky?
What is beyond time
And space
Can never be distant
Will always
Be near
Here in the rose
of the heart

Love Remains

I am here far away
Without you by my side
The sun that sets
My heart on fire
Light that fades

It’s not dark yet
I want to hold
I want to keep
My hand that grasps
My eyes that catch
Images of yesterday

And I am here
Thoughts that spin
Spiders creep
All the fears
That are
surrounding me

I face
The sun that sets
Down to earth
When nothing is left
All is gone
Only love remains

Home Is Where The Love Is

I am on my way home
Meet me there
Meet me new
We are
Without a past
Dance this sacred dance
with me
Of sun and moon
And yin and yang

Home is where the truth is
No need to lie
No need to hide
Hearts with open doors
We’ve always been
And always will be
Naked in each other’s eyes
Home is where the love is
where my soul
meets yours

Deep Waters

This love has deep waters
And a shore that can’t be seen
I know
You are scared to drown
Though
You can float
You can swim
Sail your boat
Trust the wind
Surf the waves
And when you sink
Just let yourself sink down
Underneath the surface
To find the stillness
and the beauty
At the bottom

Head In The Clouds

She flies with the wind
High up in the sky
Spreading her wings
Her head in the clouds
There she goes
Her heart feather light
She dreams while she’s awake
As she knows
Another world
Is just another breath away

She is like a fairy
Flying into tales
Seen from above
Everything can be real
She goes higher
Takes the leap
Though she knows
When you go high up
You can only fall deep

Lisboa, Queen Of My Heart

The blue sea smells of sardines
The land is scented with saudade
Waves of memories
roll towards me
I dance my way through Alfama
And will write my own history
Sounds of Fado take me with you
To comforting Portuguese ground
Into the heart of faith and fate
What will be will be
with no doubt

Let my tears merge
with the water of the Tagus
Let my soul flame o meu amor
I will be the queen of myself
Up the hill in the castle
Ready to receive the king of my heart

Let me discover the truth of a treasure
I will embark the ship of my dreams
Let me raise my glass to good fortune
Let God be with me when I go overseas

Lisboa, city of light
Always have your arms wide open
To allow me to return back home
Though there can be stormy waters
I will never lose track of your shore

Not Too Late

In the streets
Underneath the balcony
Bars are open
People talk
We no more
A guitar plays
A melody of ours
Church bells ring
Announce a late hour
At which there is
Still a song to sing
Laughter to hear
It might be not too late
If we only keep on dancing
Till the morning hour

More Here Than Ever

This town here at the river breathes you
I follow the flow of the water
And I know it leads to you
The ships that are sailing by
Will they once return?
Will they come back to listen
To the story that still burns?

In these sunny streets I walk
Towards brightly missing you
The town holds all the tales
How I would long to tell you
The birds here sing your name
The crowded square looks empty
And the buildings lost their colours
Now they all look grey

Even though you’re not there
You’re more here
than you ever were
