Stars

I can’t look into your eyes
to see the stars tonight
so I look up
to see them in the sky

How I miss you
A heart-wrenching longing
makes me grasp for the stars
my arm, my hand reaches out
for them
as if they all hold a piece of light
from you

But then love,
like a shooting star
pulls me back inward
and there I see your eyes again
and find my universe with you

Together Always

My love, I’m always with you
as you are with me
If you sometimes feel lonely
and you cannot see
it’s because there’s too much noise
in your mind
and I cannot reach you
so keep still and go within
to feel me, to hear
my words of love and guidance

July 14

Sometimes the now stands
in such a stark contrast to the past
The same number on the calendar
The same summer day
but a bright shining sun,
fireworks in the sky,
eyes that sparkled
when they met back then

And it’s cloudy and grey,
it’s raining today,
outside and inside of me
While my eyes restlessly
seek yours

Though there’s a knowing
there’s a feeling
that the sun from back then
is still there behind the clouds
and is strong enough
to beam its light
onto the future

I Need A Dream

I need a dream so bright
that it lightens my future
I need a dream so strong
that it carries me
out of the darkness
if I can’t go forward myself
I need a dream so big
that it is bigger than my fears
bigger than my aches
I need a dream so unwavering
that it believes in itself
and still stands
even if everything else
has fallen apart
I need a dream so enchanting
that it takes me to places far
and makes all of its content
come true
A dream so magical
that I just want to dream and
to dream and to dream
That’s when I dream
about me and you

May It Be Enough

When I’m so tired, so anxious
and hurt from the battle
as a warrior of my heart
fighting on the front line
for a truthful and
compassionate world for us
may I rest in your arms
may I be enough
even if I don’t fight

May it be enough
if I just breathe
and if I just love

The Reach Of The Sun

And while the sun on your side
of the world shines brightly
and marks the day,
here on my side of the world
I watch it with its last strength
make a play of colours
before the dark of the night takes over
As if the sun is you
and reaches out to me in its longing
stretches its arms of light
across the ocean
to yet paint the sky for me
and make a wordless serenade

Fairy Tale Kisses

My fairy prince,
I don’t like the tale I’m in
The night is so dark
I’m lost in the woods
and fears, thoughts and aches
are waiting for me
like a big bad wolf

Can you give me
your magic kiss
to put me to sleep
and a second one
to wake me up again
in our real love’s
everlasting dreamland

My Star

You’re always a bright
shining star
whether others may
recognize it or not
They may not look up
or they may not be
on the same frequency
as you are
and therefore cannot hear
the song of your heart

But that doesn’t say
anything about your light
how it illuminates the world
how it guides me to love you
every day even more

For he who has his heart full
of true love and beauty
is always a winner
and can never lose

When You Speak Your Truth

And if you stand up
speak your truth
and let yourself be seen
like a flower that grows
higher than the grass,
others can shoot at you
ridicule and shame you
but at least,
you can’t blame yourself
for you weren’t born
to just be like grass
you were made
to sing your own song
to show your own colours
to grow towards the light
and to follow your heart

Air Mail

And in the dark
I lie in my bed
Through the open window
I watch the night sky
And then the wind
blows over me
as if it brings
me a message
a gentle stroke of love
from you
And I reply
Through the open window
I send the wind back
across the ocean
to kiss and touch your skin
with love from me

©RoseGirl2020

Holding Love

I lay a hand on my heart
to feel the rhythm
of what is guiding me
to feel the movement of love,
touchable in my hand
To feel you
like music, like truth
like a feeling, a presence

And I cross skies,
oceans and time
as I let love expand
and hold you, hold us
in the radiance of my heart

Reading The Stars

And at night when the stars
start to shine
to weave their web of dreams
around me
and I look up to catch them
with my eyes,
my heart starts to yearn
for you even more
as if it reads
all our wishes, the prayers,
the story of fate written
on the starry ceiling

What Pain And Love Would Write

And if I would let pain write now
it would write a starless night
of fear
in which I can’t see, I’m not seen
A dark universe in which
I’m not even small
but nobody, nothing at all
It would write a flower
that doesn’t fit the field
that has the wrong colours,
and makes the wrong movements
in the wind

But if I would let love write now
it would write the sun and moon
together high above in the sky
The sun that shines upon the moon
to get her through the night
It would write a flower that fits
the heavens
and that perfectly fits love

So I Can Dream

And if the night comes
with little sleep again
with fears that rise
dark and painful
with migraines
and thoughts that turn
themselves against me
will you shine your sun
to me
from your side of the world
to illuminate my night
and keep me safe and well
in the arms of love
so I can dream

©RoseGirl2020

Deep In Me

You are so deep in me
where feelings run
deeper than oceans
where love resides
innocent and pure
where truth and wisdom guide
where you and me
are liquid and flowing
without skin, without borders
in an infinite embrace
There in the deepest
of my core
you have your home

Bliss

It’s about something and nothing
it’s about everything
It’s about life, here and now
and eternity
It’s about fireworks in the sky
shooting stars and the whole
universe
you in me
body, heart, mind, soul
entwine, dance, merge
when it all comes together
It’s about divine bliss

The Magic Of Loving You

I can cross thousands of miles,
an ocean, the whole world
in an instant
I can turn on the sun
in a cloudy sky
and make stars twinkle
at night
I can make mountains move
I can make walls break
and fly
I can become a fairy,
a queen
then you’ll be my king
Everywhere I can make
dance floors
and palaces appear
for that’s just the magic
of loving you

Love Poems

My love, so many poems
are still waiting to be born
in the light of your eyes
to be caught by your heart
But know that
we don’t even need
those written poems
as every time my heart beats
every time I breathe
I already make
a love poem for you
