what i still wanted to tell

..... and on the day
that you were born
the world got that much

eastern perfume
and oriental eyes
this wisdom in your words
that dream never dies

and every time
i listened
I saw
the universe in your eyes

eastern perfume
and oriental eyes
this wisdom in words
your dream never dies

Coming back to you

When I am alone
By myself
That thought
It would be better
To keep the silence there
Between us
Nothing more

Now it seems
This is something new
I don't need you anymore

Something shows
How fragile

Coming back to you

your eyes

what i see
in your eyes

children dance
on a palmy beach

and i see you
eating icecream

sitting in an open car
driven along

driven along

driven along the
wine fields of italy

and you want to kiss me
when we are

laying in the high grass
laying in the high grass

on a welsh hill
or in the south of france

that is what i see
when i look in your eyes

Another day, another way

In days gone past
Bound by allegiance way
When the dice were being cast
It took me to the battle array
How I saw people killed
Who fought for their own sake
My cup got never filled
When lives were at stake

A thought came to pass with me
There must be another way, another day
For all to be finally free
And a peaceful mind to stay

I left my bow and sword
To lead a life on higher ground
Through a song, through a word
Cast some happiness around

This is where I stand
Respecting for what you are
From my never-never land
Trust is never far

She's a woman
Who likes to have
The wind play
Through her hair

I would like to know
What part of the world
You walk on
Which sea you swim
How many stars
You see at night
Would you like
To tell me

She's a woman
Who likes to have
The wind play
Through your hair
And who makes you
Forget where you were
And know
Where you are

The Divine Mother

You remind us
Of who we are

The wind
The rain
And all the sunshine
Comes from you 

You are the one
Giving birth to life
And making it

And life ends
With the night
To start new life
With dawn 
When you are the one
Who gives birth
To creation

You are 
The Divine Mother
From whom
Life flows
Into an endless river

You remind me
Of what I am

About Fairies

To believe
That fairies
Is for little girls
Makes no sense 
At least not for me 

I already spoke once
With a winter fairy
And as a fellow
You wished
You had met them earlier

Their beauty 
Is overwhelming 
And funny enough 
They leave you 

Unless you have 
Something to tell

There is this 
Whole dynamic 
Of life
Called spirits
A subject
With opinions 
False data
And misbelieves 

If you want it
Open your eyes 
And your heart
And you will

When you laugh
I laugh with you
When you cry
My heart cries with you
When you live
I live with you
When you dance
I dance for you

And I will make
The sun shine
The moon fine
The summer breeze
The lake freeze
So we can skate
Laugh at any fate
Swim in the sea
And feel our hearts free

So when I laugh
You laugh with me
When I cry
Your heart is with me
When I live
You live with me
When I dance
You dance for me

When you want to know again
How to be a friend
Look at a child

When you want to dance
Take off your shoes
At the beach

When you want to live
A simple life
Listen to the wind

When all else fails
Look as far as you can
And see yourself

A Pirate's Song

Standing on the after deck
The pirate with 
Copper red hair
Whistled an old melody
While her mind
Was thinking

This ocean teaches us all
That one ocean
Is one immense little universe
As part of a big one

Hail you endless depth
No way to fathom you
But one day I will
One day I will

The Queen of the Mountain Range

With the bald eagle
Always near
And the condor
On a gliding flight
Between the crests
Of the mountain range

While finding a path
To the top
Of the highest mountain still
You may find yourself
In a moment
Face to face
With what always
Is felt around

It could take the form
Of a song
In the wind
A whisper in the night
Laughter in the morning
But only
Will you really know
About this unspoken truth
When you are face to face
With the Queen
Of the Mountain Range

There is hardly
If any

There are churches
Of the new religion
Of Knowing How To Know
Which cater broadly
To a knowledge hungry population

Countries are trading
With countries
Africa is flourishing
Just like Asia and Europe
North and South America

In schools and universities
Students learn first how to study
Before they start studying
And students can apply
What they have learned

The arts are open to anyone
Who likes to express himself
And people know
How to grant beingness
To the artist

Media are only reporting
Factual news
And news that is good news
Bad news is only reported
To the responsible with a handling

Only the most optimum
Medical care is delivered
Not for profit but for
Of a person's health

And any dream
A person may have
Comes true
In reality
Amongst others

And tomorrow
Is virgin territory
We create it now
And enter it

When I realized
I was getting older
I had passed
The sixty mark
What a shabby cheat
Such a big lie

If I will ask
My body
Or this thing
The physical universe
On which
You and I
A so called agreement
If I will ask it
What my own
State of affairs is
I am done

Fact is
I am younger now
Than I have ever been
