One Thousand Kisses

I send you one thousand kisses
so for every opportunity,
you’ll have a kiss in stock

Kisses to heal the wounds
in your heart
Kisses to celebrate your joys
Kisses to inspire
Kisses to warm you up
Kisses to calm you down

My kisses are multifunctional
multiple times usable
They get activated
by the power of thought

They have no additives
They are organic
as their only ingredient
is pure love

Heart-To-Heart Time

It may look like
the moon is not there tonight
but what no one can see
is that behind a curtain of clouds
she has her own heart-to-heart time
with her beloved, the sun

They exchange
She receives him deeply within
And as they dance silently
in devotion to each other
they make the seas move on earth
in undulating passion
of ebb and flow

I Pick You Up

And I take a breath
and pick you up
as I always pick you up
to fill me from the inside
with you
and to anchor in love

I pick you up
straight through all the fears
straight through the chaos
My breath find its way to you
to let you rise inside of me
to find back my strength

On The Same Screen

And if we were both
in a movie right now
Filmed by an all seeing eye
The watchers would see

A shot of me in the kitchen
while I cook a dinner
Staring, melancholic eyes
that try to find you
in my inner world

Perry Como’s song
‘It’s impossible’ plays
in the background
For it is impossible
not to think of you

Then a shot of you
in another scene,
another time zone,
another country
sitting in your chair
staring, melancholic eyes
that try to find me
in your inner world

Those two scenes
that play at the same time
on the same screen
that erase any distance
between us
Those watchers would see
infinite truth

The Healing Waters Of Poetry

When the pain of missing you
becomes almost unbearable
and is like a knife that pierces
my chest
When my mind can only think
in miles that lie between us
in words that haven’t been said
When my eyes only see
a big ocean before me
that separates two continents
and my heart cries yearning tears
then I dive into the healing
waters of poetry
to be together with you
in flowing words of love

Our Raft

The sea is wild
The waves almost seem violent
The way the water crashes onto us

But we have our solid raft
to hold on to
a strong foundation of poetry
and songs
to keep the hope alive
and to have courage
That always follows
the stream of our hearts

For no matter how dark the night is
and how loud the sea may rage
Love is always the strongest force of all
After every storm a calm will come

Let Your Light Shine For Yourself

And under the moonlight
she walks
Her footsteps are heavy
as she carries a great burden
of guilt on her shoulders
Thoughts that say
She did something wrong
Because that’s what they told her

The moon looks down on the girl
and sees her struggle
Sees that the girl
all her life wanted to be good to others
And often just gave up on herself

‘Oh girl, put down your burden
It never has been yours
Be free, girl, love and dance
In order to be there for others
you first need to let your light
shine for yourself’

Transformational Pain

Pain is the shedding of skin
It is the caterpillar that dies
in his dark cocoon
to make room for the butterfly

Pain is to be physically
separated from you
Only to see that
in heart we’re never apart

It is stomach pain, headache,
sleepless nights that scream
to leave the old in the past
and let go to be free

Pain is questioning
what your soul whispers to you
It is resistance
as you fear the unknown
and you don’t want to hurt others

Pain is like squeezing contractions,
the movement of muscles to push out
and birth ourselves anew into our love

©RoseGirl2019

Sunrise

And in the eternal dance
of sun and moon,
The moon takes a step back
to hold space for
the sun, her beloved
to rise in all his beauty,
in his true shine
and to start a new day

She smiles lovingly
as she watches him
She has his back
His light shines within her
She feels all of his power
all of his strength,
his full potential
Just as her bright glow
always shines within him

©RoseGirl2019

Oh Boy, Oh Boy

Oh sexy man in suit,
that dreamy smile
in your eyes says it all,
You think of the night ahead
You think of your lady in dress
You think of a dinner for two,
a dance floor to conquer
You think of fiery lips that kiss
You think of fiery hands that touch
You think of a suit and a dress
on the floor
You think of…. oh boy, oh boy

The New Chapter

And she said:

If you start a new chapter
am I still with you on the new page
Or do you leave me behind
in the grave of old stories
Buried in my own pain,
never to be read again
Is my existence erased,
who am I if I’m no one,
if I’m nothing
and don’t even have a name

And he said:

See yourself in me
With each part of myself that I
acknowledge, I acknowledge you
As I integrate all pieces,
I integrate you even deeper
So how can I not take you with me
into the lines of the new chapter
You don’t see you on the new page,
for while writing the book of life,
we’re holding the pen together

My Favourite Thing To Think About

There are many things
I can think about
Each day a crowd of thoughts
bustles and pushes
to be thought by me

There are the worries
that always try to be first
The happy thoughts
that jump up and down
Big thoughts about big dreams
And little thoughts that are
unnecessary

On the screen of my mind
I can project the whole world
But among all those thoughts
playing out in my head each day
You’re my favourite thing
to think about

©RoseGirl2019

Catharsis

May the tears that flow
from my eyes be the ink
I write with

May all of our pain
be transformed
into the beauty of poetry

May each teardrop
be honoured in a word
A building stone
of our cathedral

May they wash away
the past, the old stories
to make room
for a new beginning

May our tears be
a testimony of perseverance,
a test of will and strength

May they flow abundantly
and make an ocean
to show the whole world
the greatness of true love

©RoseGirl2019

Infinite Ways

Every day I discover new ways
to love you
Another angle to love you from
A deeper layer, a different shade
A new facet of the diamond
Another point of view, a new light
Higher in the sky
Deeper in the earth
Diagonal, zig-zag
Upright and upside down
All those new ways to love you
make an infinite universe to discover

©RoseGirl2019

Heart’s Desires

Even if the mind is like
a narrow alley
with thoughts that
cage the heart,
True heart’s desires
will always fly up like birds
to find the open sky
of possibilities
and to align with what
they wish for
and make things come true
For if you desire it
Then it’s meant for you

©RoseGirl2019

Soul Searching

Hold my hand, my love
as I go deep
in the underground caves,
in the labyrinth of shadows
Be my eyes so I can see in the dark
Be my ears so I can hear the music
on the other side of fear
Be my voice so I can still be heard
Be my feet that carry me
when I can’t move myself
Be my light so I can find my way out
Be you so I remember me

©RoseGirl2019

No Mistakes

There are no mistakes
on this journey of love
Every step taken was
needed to move forward
and to arrive
where we are right now

There is no right or wrong
As understanding comes
with experiences
Growth happens
when choosing new ways

For this love that is
much bigger than us
much bigger than our egos
can never be screwed up

©RoseGirl2019

Unlearning

We don’t need to become
a new person
or change into someone
we are not
But it’s about unlearning
all the programming,
all the beliefs and conditioning
that society, others, our brain
have put on us

To unlearn the fears to love
To unlearn the false characters
we played in order to belong
and be accepted
It is about undressing ourselves
from all the falsehood
and to dance freely
who we truly are

©RoseGirl2019

I Keep Finding You

Wherever I may wander,
No matter how far
I venture out in the world,
I keep finding you
in my heartbeat
When my chest rises to inhale
Every time I Iift my pen to write
my poetry
When I Iift my feet to dance
When I close my eyes to dream
When I open them in the morning

Even when I fear I’ve lost for good
When I’m lost myself
I keep finding you
in all those little signs around me
that remind me of you
In Autumn, Winter, Spring
and Summer
Maybe, because I’ve never
lost you at all

Where Avalon Can Be Found

Avalon is not an island far away
with an unreachable shore,
a myth that exists only in books,
idyllic romance once captured in tales
nor is it a dream that can only be dreamt

Its fruits can still be harvest anytime
Its enchanting magic is still there
Even if nobody believes in it
Avalon can be found every time
we cross the sea of our love
For at the place where our
naked hearts connect, lies paradise

©RoseGirl2019

I Feel, Therefore I Know

My mind can find many reasons,
many explanations, obstacles
theories and analysis
My mind likes to linger in the past,
to fear the future, to run in circles
It thinks that, to understand the facts
is to have control

But it’s only, when I sink into my heart,
when I feel you and feel the love
that has no beginning, no ending
that I truly and profoundly know

©RoseGirl2019

It’s Already There

What if all that we wish for
our bright future, our big dream
is already there, is available for us
right here in the now

What if we just need to tap into the energies
to feel it, become what we want
to let it roll into our world

Then, there’s no need for impatience,
for worry, for fear,
no need for needing,
for grasping and chasing
for we know, it’s already there
and it’s all ours

©RoseGirl2019

Your Heart Will See

And he said:

Can you trust me
as much as you love me
Can you trust me
so truly that even,
when you don’t see me,
your eyes won’t look for me
They won’t go after me
Your eyes will let me be free
and won’t try to capture
For you know,
when I’m not before you
I’m behind you to hold you
When your eyes cannot see me
then your heart will see

The Antidote

The rose drinks from the poison
of self-doubt
She shrinks and becomes very small
Her petals are hanging down
And all the demons laugh at her

There’s only one antidote to save her
She needs to look up
She needs to let the sun of true love
cleanse her from all the poison
in her mind, the fears in her stem
And then, the light of love
will make her grow again

©RoseGirl2019

Allowing

Throughout her life
she fought many battles
She grew strong like a tree
that stands on its own
and can’t be blown over
Yet, her heart remained
vulnerable like a blossom

Always, she carried a sword in her hand
Ready to protect and to fight
She was a warrior, a brave knight
And to have that precious sword
was often a matter of life and death,
her only means to survive

And now,
She stands before her beloved
and looks into his beautiful eyes
She sees the sun, the moon and the stars
She looks into the universe
She sees the earth
She sees all that he is
and hands over the sword to him
She allows him to hold it,
allows him to be the knight

Naked she is without her armour
She surrenders to him
and allows him to hold her
She sinks deep into his arms
softens and curls up
against his chest
as she trusts his strength,
trusts his arms to carry her
to the moon and back
and all over the world

Blue Tits

This afternoon three Blue Tits
came to visit me
They stayed for a while before
the window
and sang happily their songs

They say that the Blue Tit is
a good omen
as it represents trust, true love
faith, loyalty and good luck

The male bird creates the nest
and then attracts a female to it
through its singing
Like you, my love, once enchanted me
and sang me right into your arms

Blue Tits are loyal
and committed to each other
for the rest of their lives
Sometimes they fly out
though they never fly far
and they always return home

Lessons

When we say goodbye to old times,
When challenges, experiences,
lessons come up
When the energies are intense,
Know that those are only there
for us to grow and expand
and to help us shift deeper
into our hearts, into this love,
as we walk this journey together
every battle won, every truth spoken
every time we stand up,
every choice for love
is a step closer to home

©RoseGirl2019

If The Moon Could Talk

If only the moon could talk,
She would tell you about
all the unwritten poems
that I’ve gazed up into the sky,
all the ‘I love you’s’ that
I’ve whispered into the dark,
all the prayers, all the wishes
that I’ve sent out into the night

Or maybe, she would only smile
and would tell you, every time
she appears to be seen by your eyes,
by the brightness of her glow
how much you are loved

Halloween

It’s Halloween inside
The skeletons come out of the closet
Fears take me on a spooky ride
Phantom thoughts show their teeth
Vampires knock on the door
Old wounds are being ripped open
Old memories resurrect from their grave
Shadows come to haunt me
But your voice sings a sweet lullaby
and in your arms I’m safe
as I let love conquer it all

©RoseGirl2019

My Grounding

I feel you growing in me
You get stronger
Your roots grow deeper
and deeper into my base
and ground me within myself
When I tend to fly too high
When I float on emotions
When a hyena tries to grab me
You are a tree that I can lean against,
that I can trust to have my back,
that gives me the strength
to stand up for myself
and that always protects me
with undying love

©RoseGirl2019

Neither Of Us Is Left Behind

Two silhouettes run, dance
together
through the dark
towards the light
As they hold hands
they almost seem to fly

They want to be on time
to catch the dawn,
catch their dreams
and live their love
For they know
Now is the moment
Not yesterday,
not tomorrow

But right when they think
that they will make it
and there is nothing left
that holds them back
on their way,
she falls down to the ground
and finds herself lost

She starts to fear
The golden sun will soon rise
Its rays will show the doorway
Did he run further on his path
without her
Did he leave her behind
in the dark
Is he ahead
She screams for him:
My love, where are you!!!!

But then she hears his voice
right next to her:
I’m here, I’m always here
By your side, where I belong
Give me your hand
We can only reach
the horizon together
On the path towards the light
Neither of us is left behind
