Just moments ago

Just moments ago, all was right
And the sky was blue
But now all I see
Is blurry and grey

Trying to get something done
Trying to take my mind off things
Sorting, processing
Love, missing, reasoning

And your red heart 
Stays with me and reminds me
Of the wonderful person
Whom you were every time.

Dear friend

Dear friend, most of the time you are far away,
And yet we understand each other.
Somehow we have managed to do that
Even though you and I haven’t known each other long.

Of course, we have something in common. Someone.
But … we also have many other things in common.
Not only that we are almost the same age.
Our interests are often similar too …

Like me, you love the green in nature,
The growing branches,
The “re-creation of nature”,
That’s what someone once called it.

And when we look up at the sky
Watching the passing clouds
And talk about God and the world,
We can understand each other in any language.

Thank you for spending time with me
For making me a better person.
Let’s always have an open ear for each other
And foster our trust in each other.

Thank you for letting me know you

– Your friend

Arrival

When the gate opens
and the excitement rises
when the wait is over
and the moment has come

I close my eyes
and thank my God
because so much joy and love,
I don’t really deserve it.

I feel so small,
overwhelmed
because of the many good things
that have been prepared for me.

Forgotten is the long journey,
past the weeks and months of patience,
the first greeting is here.

A friendly smile,
tentative steps,
a quickening gait,
a warm embrace.

I have missed you so much. 😌

Poems

Do you long?

Do you long for the place where peace prevails,
The place that comes to rest every day anew
And reinvents itself, in its always unchanging goodness?

Do you long for the time when all are healthy,
Where there is no more pain, no more suffering,
And everyone rejoices full of strength and health?

Do you long for gentleness, compassion, understanding,
for encouragement, friendship and love,
For the close embrace of your loved ones?

Pray for strength
Fill yourself up with new energy
Let yourself fall
Feel within yourself how good it feels to be loved
to be loved with all your heart.

Poems

Only you

My joy.
My happiness.
My gift.
That is you.

My smile.
My heart.
My mouse.
That is you.

My haven of peace.
My sun.
My energy.
My love.
That is you,
Only you.
