 The Viking

                                                                              With one thought in mind
This world belongs to me
He was a free man
She was a free woman

They were free as warriors
Their integrity to their mission
Was more important than their body
And so they conquered land

They originated
From Iceland, Norway
Sweden, Denmark

And so set sail to America
Long before Columbus ever did

They traded with the Arabic world
Went to Mediterranean countries
And sailed the long rivers of Russia
All the way to Kurdistan
They ruled the Baltic
They conquered the British Isles
And gave name to Normandy

They were one with the forces 
And the gods of nature
They were masters 
In building an empire
But didn't understand yet
How to sustain one
For a longer time

Just like there are warriors
There are still Vikings around
They do have long hair as men
But not necessarily so
And as women with long hair 
But not necessarily so 
A Viking is he who is fearless
And true to his mission in life
A Viking is she who is fearless
And true to her mission in life

Vikings are immortal!

Walking up to the stars

You can
Go to the left
Go to the right
Or get yourself into the ground

Or you can
Go to the right
While you liked the left
Or go to the left
With a desire for the right

Or for excitement
Go to the basement of life
Down and down you go
Darker and darker even so

In a moment supreme
There shows up
One more direction to go

You can actually
Walk up to the stars
You have seen
The step by step

Message from a Winter Elf

Some people wonder
How we survive
Dressed as in summer
While it is freezing winter
Snow, ice, blizzards
The answer is simple
We are not your kind
We are spirits
And are ourselves
Able to survive
Way below
In minus degrees

Laws like gravity
aging and temperature
Don't apply to us
If you really look
And then listen
You can communicate
With us
We are around
We see you
And we add
Sparkle to life
Merry Christmas !

Mother and child


God blesses the child
Whose mother is called

The Evening Star shines bright
Just like the Morning Star

Between day and night

With the world so large
And the body so small
Mom is a safe heaven

God has blessed the mother
Whose child is

Puerto Rico

Bring me to the Wealthy Harbor
With sails full of wind
I need to hear that music again
Which is the rhythm of my heart

Puerto Rico
Make me dance
Salsa, salsa, salsa
Me corazon

Sail to the Wealthy Harbor
For another day
You can't stop that music
'Cause it is the rhythm of your heart

Puerto Rico
Make me dance
Salsa, salsa, salsa
Te corazon

Guardian Angel

Each and every time
When people are taken into the sky
All that is left for them
To have
Is the interior of the plane
Endless sky
And the embodiment
Of a guardian angel
And skilled communication
I put my life in your hands
And I give you in return
Bring me home
Put my feet back on the ground
Guardian angel

Un nouveau siècle

From the open window
Comes piano music of Satie
And fills the street
The Eiffel tower is halfway built
The best breakfast there is
é au lait and a croissant

The air is filled
With creation, creation, creation
In the minds of the Paris people
Imagination, imagination
And l’amour is an art

Wouldn’t you like
To take a ride again
On this new invention
Called voiture Renault
I still do love your horses

Paris, c’est pas une ville
Nor a city or a town
It’s a dream
We had
And came true

Emperor of Quiet Winds

I am The Emperor of Quiet Winds
Caretaker of forgotten Dreams
While you sleep at night 
I roam the endless Bounderies

You are free to reign in my Empire
Sit down in the Chair
And rule with Fantasy
For just a moment that last Forever

Let me visit the Kingdom of your Soul
See your Land of Dreams and Vision
That makes me feel at Home
As Emperor of Quiet Winds

I do not feel any Fear
Neither do I feel your Fear
I trust You
While Quiet Winds roam

Floating upstream

Victorious is the one
Who disagrees by

Going against the stream
Following a dream

A boring career to keep
Following like a sheep
And go down the drain
No words to explain

No, for excitement is
An advise with no amiss
To float upstream and so
Some place to go
Where happiness is !
