To an Ex

With every day that passes by,
I am less drawn to the questions why –
Why we never had a chance,
Why you weren’t ready to dance.

And then I realize this dream,
Was one that only I had seen –
You weren’t ready to perceive –
That what I would always believe.

For if I try to change for you,
You’ll never see the me that’s true –
I dimmed my light –
And lost my inner fight.

I have let go –
You’re not the person I thought I’d know.
Within my world you’ve gotten smaller,
My light inside has gotten taller.

I am grateful for what you taught me,
Those heavy lessons about my destiny –
The universe has other plans –
And I will now take every chance.

I freed my soul from expectations –
Of me and you and my creations.
My heart is ready to believe –
That I am here now to receive:

A love that fulfills my wildest fantasy –
All I gotta do is let him come to me.
So that soon enough and with a beautiful balance,
My king and I will have a chance,

When in a waltz we will dance,
In passionate eternal romance,
And together embrace –
A new and beautiful phase.

When you are with me

I forget the world around me.

I feel your presence, your essence, your soul…
and everything else, every negative thought or doubt,
every distraction around me is gone.

In the moment of silence when I just look at you or feel the touch of your hand on mine, the world stands still.

There is no place where I would rather be.

When I lay in your arms,
I find back to myself again…
what greater gift can you make me than this?

Real happiness lies within ourselves ~
and if someone shows you love,
inner peace and freedom simply through his presence,
enjoy these moments because they are precious,
as is the person you are with!

No ego ~ pure unconditional love
and respect for your divine being.

Could I ever ask for more?

When I am with you,
every second is precious,
every moment I am close to you is endless and beautiful.

Oh how I want to look into your eyes,
taste your kisses
and feel the warmth of your smile on my skin.

We never know what happens
in the next hour, second, moment –
I don’t take it for granted when I am with you.

Let us embrace each other with love
and forget time –
indulging in every timeless moment.

The American Dream?

The moment comes when you realize
You’ve walked through pain, believed the lies.

And you did it with sincerity –
You trusted wrong security.

Your life seemed great, you did what they said –
You understood you’d soon be dead.

So you had to make things right –
You listened, never questioned, you followed with pride.

The “American Dream” – the american life –
But what if someone pulled out a knife –

And killed you in this moment, now –
Would you say you truly lived somehow?

Would the people you know say you truly lived?
That you saw this life as a gift?

Or would they say, you lived a lie –
You hardly took the time to say “hi”?!

What would leave behind?
Were you numb – or were you kind?

How many people have you touched –
Were you able to inspired much?

Are you who you want to be –
Are you able to set your spirit free?

Or are you stuck inside your mind
Living for the future, to the present blind?

So with these questions asked –
And knowing that life may not last –

What are you going to do today?
Will you live life in your own, unique way?

Uncover

I want you to uncover me.
To peel my layers of.
What is inside is just for you to see,
You’ll find a new me to love.

I’ll share with you my insecurities,
I’ll hide from you no more.
Continue the search, dive into the depth of me,
You’ll never feel forlorn.

Cause I will find you within my forbidden walls,
Where only I was traveling far and wide.
You can hear that inner call,
When I looked for a true man by my side.

Now you are here and I feel fear,
But I’ll no longer give in to it.
I was afraid you’d disappear,
Once we would be intimit.

But you proved me wrong,
The rose has lost her thorns.
It’s why I sing this song,
To show I’m no longer torn.

You’ve shown me now that I can trust,
And love with all my heart.
The past is gone, it turned to dust,
Our future is the start.

So come now and let me uncover
The layers, wrapped around your soul.
We’ve made it this far with each other,
It’s time to lose control.
