Set Your Heart Free

You think you are a bird in a cage
And you are trapped in a past
Of black and white
Of no meaning, of doubting
yourself and life

You imprison yourself by thoughts
And behind bars
You look at the world
You observe but you’d like to join
You long to fly
But you think you can never make it far

But the other day I saw you dancing
under a tree,
Like a child playing in the fields
With music in your ears
And a song on your heart

Your heart is strong enough
to break free
Birds are meant to fly
It longs for the clear blue sky
To feel the wind, to feel alive
It longs for new horizons
To leave the past
and its cage behind
And I know it longs for me

Love Doves

Is it true
that today
heaven’s blue looks
even bluer than blue?
And the houses of white
are brighter than bright?
People who pass by
give me their smile
And palm trees
of greenest green
wave excitedly at me
Doves do a love dance
Then go up into the sky
I let me,
let you go
Birds just need
to fly

Let’s Get Lost

Let’s get lost 
in the tales of 
this town
Let’s get lost 
in the maze of
our hearts,
In the space 
outside 
the map
Without anything to expect 
We’ll be surprised 
all the time
So let’s get lost 
in the streets of
this town
In your arms 
I want to be found

Leaving Leaves

The Fall falls down
Heavy on my shoulders
Harvest moon that shines
Upon the lovers’ souls
Blessed is the Autumn wind
That takes us far from here
And blows us
into the comfort of our dreams

Soon you will leave this land
Like the leaves leave the tree
Though there is no goodbye
Always a welcome
To the one I hold dear

And we both know
Winter will knock at our doors
Cold will push us inside
But then let us warm us
With the promise of Spring

Cup Of Love 

I am on the other side of the river bank
And I hold my cup of love
up high
Precious nectar of the heart
that flows
Shimmering divine
I’d like to offer it to you
But I came from far
and I’m so tired and thirsty
now
So let me drink it first
Then please choose
If you’d like to drink
from this sacred cup of mine
If your heart is open
to receive
‘Cause this cup of deepest love
is for the braves
Who are willing to lose
everything they once believed in
And maybe
You too would like to share
your cup with me
And unblind me
with your truth
We only have a bridge to cross
So let us meet halfway
Let us be drunk by love
Drunk by our truth

Grounded In Love

The heavens open up
I flow with the water
Tears merge with raindrops

You’re so close
Though I cannot touch you
I see you within
Though you’re not here

Wounds are aching
A heart is moving
I am whirling around
With the wind

I ground myself in love
Earth myself in heaven
And in the eye of the storm
I am at peace

When Heaven Meets Earth

Wherever you are
Just look at the sky
And you will find me

The sun crosses worlds
The moon lightens shadows
Stars foresee
What we may not see
When heaven meets earth

Just look up
From wherever you are
All my wishes are out there
Stardust
will rain on us
If you only just believe

Wherever you are
Wherever I am
Look into you
I look into me
And we will find
our universe

If She Were A Tree

Leaves fall down
The wind gives wings
And
gently brings
them to the ground

The tree
That stands
Firmly rooted
in the earth
Branches reach
Up into the sky
Moved
By the rhythm
Of the seasons

If she were a tree
Then he would be her sun
Rays of purest light
Would feed her
She would blossom
Bear the fruits with pride
And then
let them go,
let them fly down
with the wind,
merge with the earth
And let it again
feed her

Fiercely And Fearlessly 

Now the storm is raging
And lightning splits
The dark sky
Wild dreams hunt
The ones
Who are without sleep

I have my cave
To shelter
The pole star
to guide me
A fire
to warm me
In this cold night

And I wait
the storm
To pass
The sun to rise
Free are the ones
Who embrace
Whatever may come

What else could
I do
What more would
Be left
Now
Than fiercely
And fearlessly
Loving you

Knight Of The Heart

She raises her sword
Her heart is on fire
She holds the love
And claimes her own life

She loves the love
That is sacred
Trusts God to bring
What is meant to be
She liberates herself
From the layers
Of all that won’t serve her
She is only armed
With her naked truth

She had her battles
And learnt how to choose
Which one to fight
Which to surrender
The cause of the heart
Is never to lose

She can’t go back to sleep
As she has already awoken
The point of no return
She rides her horse
Carries the torch
And knows
What is in the heart
Cannot be broken

©RoseGirl2017

Blindfolded 

You go with me
Wherever I am
You move me
Wherever I go

The horizon
Is out of sight
White stripes
on the road
That point
to the unknown

I am
blindfolded 
I only have
My hands to touch
My ears to hear
My heart to feel

You who have
touched me
Your song I hear
Your heart that beats
within me

And then
I know
I sense
I breathe
Trust has got my back
My feet go straight
To the horizon
in my mind
And I just take
A leap of faith

Run Away My Love

I thought of you
Again of you
Always it is you
My thoughts hold on to
Only you
And I know
I have to let you go now
To still have you

So run away my love
Like my thoughts
run away with you
Don’t look back
Only forward
I won’t go after you
Run for the hills
Run for the clouds
As far as you need
Just find your way
Back to me

So run now my love
And while you run
I’ll hold the space
I’ll hold the love
For you to return

Wall Of Silence

You drew the line
A wall of silence
Built up by words
That have never been said
I sent airplanes to cross
Though they have been crashed
Into this wall of silence
Now the land is divided
And we weed our own fields
Silence speaks
More than words could express
Truth lies on both sides
Of this wall of silence
As we walk our paths
on the same green grass

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 risen
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

©RoseGirl2017

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

©RoseGirl2017

Better Not

If I could miss you
I would miss you
More than anything
And anyone
If I should miss you
I could not miss you
As you are the only one
Whom I would badly miss
So better not to miss you
And to never miss you
Though I would miss you
And I could miss you
now

©RoseGirl2017

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

The Wolf

I am the lonesome wolf of the forrest.
I can’t be caught
But my eyes catch everything.
My heart loyal to my beloved other one.
He whom I can see
when I look into water mirrors.
The moon is my ally.
She reflects on me
what I reflect on her.
And when she is at full strength
I cry out to her
Bathe in her pure light
Purge what is inside
Let her lighten my ways
When I wander
through dark nights
and gone days
Here in the forrest
of lost souls
