The Fairy Of Sintra

A fairy of the woods of Sintra
took me with her
We went to Quinta da Regaleira
She showed me the underground caves
the womb of mother earth
Where inner light can be found
in darkness
If you can’t rely on your eyes no more
It is your heart that guides you

We went up the hills
And flew with the robins
Along palaces and castles
Our heads in the clouds

And before I said a farewell
I asked her why all the time
she had spoken to me in plural form
Where there was just me
The fairy lady smiled and said:
‘Oh princess, don’t you see?
there is your prince next to you
lovingly holding your hand
Each step you take
He takes the same too
His energy body just as real
as you and me’
