The “Receive Message” Button

How many times can one hit the “receive message” button?
Simply to be disappointed over and over again,
No message is coming in any more.

How long can one stare at the same wall?
Hoping that one day, one final future moment,
The look of it might feel different.

How often can one check Skype?
Only to realize, that even if he is online,
There’ll be no call.

How disappointed can one get?
Still believing, if only I gave him one more chance,
He might have been my prince.

How many times will I hit the “receive message” button?
Only to have the appearing of nothingness
Remind me, that it’s really over.

How many raindrops do I need to count?
Before they finally start washing away
The memory of all the pain,
and beauty.

No matter what

I’m rconnecting to the earth.
She is full of grief.
I am full of grief.
I‘m connected to the earth.

She doesn‘t judge,
neither me nor anyone else.
She doesn‘t stop,
neither moving nor changing.

Can I connect enough,
to follow her example?
Can I hold sacred?
Can I carry on?

She just smiles and does.

What if?

What if I knew, which way I will go?
What if I knew, which choice I will make?
What if I knew, what the future will bring?
What if I knew, how to do the right thing?
What if I knew, how this world is working?

What if I knew, about my own little gift?
What if I knew, I’ll give it to whoever needs it?
What if I knew, there‘s no reason to back out?

What if I knew, it‘s always worth trying?
What if I knew, I can never fail truely?

What if I knew, it‘s okay to scrue up?
What if I knew, it‘s okay to be afraid?
What if I knew, there‘ll always be support?
What if I knew, there‘ll always be friends?

Say yes to life.

Say yes to life.

It‘s like th sun rising on a Monday morning.
saying here we are,
a new day,
a new week,
a new me,
coming around again,
to shine for you.

To shine for you,
when the dark moments creap around the corner.
To shine, when you wish you‘d stayed in bed.
To shine, so you see the beauty of this world at the periphery of yourself.

So you will find the white bird in the durty river,
the longing soul of the boy between the drugdealers,
the teacher who is giving her best for her students,
the artist who is sharing a story that will stir your heart,
the bug that‘s behind the leave.

Maybe no-one ever saw them before,
but they will shine you the way the sun reasures.

So you remember,
it‘s like the sun rising on a Monday morning,
when we dare to say yes to life.

I saw…

I saw a mountain sight so huge in france.
I saw a little girl, she tried to dance.
I saw the sun rise up above the sea.
I saw this little girl, that once was me.
I saw the waves role high against the sore.
I saw her try until she tried no more.
I saw the fishes jumping up and down.
I sae her laugh, I saw her cry and frown.
I saw the land, the earth, the sky, the air.
I saw her full of joy and love and care.
