Untouched Roses

I wish you could see
The beauty of the roses
in the backyard
Even though
Your eyes might not see
them no more,
They keep on
blossoming

Roses
Untouched
by what once happened
between two hearts
That were afraid
of the thorns

Seen by my eyes
Their colour of deep pink red
Their seductive scent
That caress
the air
I breathe
Rose petals wide open
to receive
The light of your eyes
once more

Do you see
through my eyes
How much they have grown?

The Unfolding Story

The river at my feet
Water in motion
A story unfolding
Words give me wings
To see things
from above like flying
birds see
The water underneath

Just a simple love story
That flows through time
and space
About a man and
a woman,
A match made in heaven,
That came
across the rocks in the river
on earth
Though whatever happened
And wherever it may go
It is not the end yet
Water continues
to flow
Adam and Eve
Romeo and Juliet
All that came before
Whatever has been told
about them,
Whatever may be written
Their love beyond the story
can’t be caught
in words

Ocean Of Peace 

I float in my own ocean
An endless space
of peace
and love
Carried by the waves
Water that is deep
and calm
And I am filled with grace

Though then the thoughts arise:
‘What if the storm is real
and this is just a dream’
‘What if dark clouds will push the sun away’
‘What if the waters will be rough again
And I will sink in deep’

My fears arise and make
Ripples in the water
On the surface
Of my ocean

Then I hear
a voice from within:
‘It is up to you
Do you let the sharks come in
Do you make
them appear
or disappear’
I choose.

I fall back in my own ocean
This endless space
of peace
and love
Carried by the waves
Water that is deep
and calm
And no sharks any near

Divine Love

I didn’t look
for love
Though love found me
And put
a fire in my soul
I didn’t know
That I have always known
You
The mirror of
my soul

I fall down on my knees
in this holy house of love
Truth is blissful
Blessed and grateful
As veils of illusions
are pulled aside
I say a prayer
of naked words

My heart is a lighthouse
That brightly shines its light
So that you can find
your way home
To love
you
is the closest thing
to God
