I still remember
how my legs pushed and pulled
my way through the forest
climbing the rugged path
cycling the hills home.
A world that has stopped turning madly,
where the only people who have to hurry now, are the doctors and nurses.
Their faces in pain of the tight masks they’re wearing
Their bodies tired of the long hours they’re making
Their hearts bleeding by carrying a heavy load
Day in and day out, who knows.
the old, narrow streets of Palma
its terracotta coloured houses
bay windows and tangled wires
I won’t see a way out
there are days I wish to get lost,
roam around a place I have never been
to discover its secrets and well kept history,
drink coffee in an ancient cafe
with homemade almond cake
yes please, pour me another cup
We asked for the ancient stars
and their shining has always known
We don’t falter to step firmly
To be sophisticated ánd rock solid
And we howl as wolves
For our mistakes
For our love we just seem to swallow
I lay my head to sleep
Tired of seeing who’s fighting who
Of reading the heart break of today
The state of the world we’re in
The abusers of power
The bombs still falling
The forests burning
sometimes the dead keep walking
walking over our hearts
in our dreams
to tell us
we are loved
far beyond the imaginable.
Only the cats and blackbirds knew who she was
The hat man waved at her like he always did,
wondering about her dancing in the woods
I’m watching the magical albatrossWith her fluffy coat and clumpsy stepWaiting for the time to spread her majestic wingsLifted by the wind to cross the endless ocean Starting life on her ownThis adorable albatross childWith her stomach full of sadness I’m watching the albatrossHer brothers and sisters are sufferingUntil death releases them from their pain [...]
I saw sadness and loneliness in your eyes,
the first time I looked at your face.
I saw pain and desertion hiding under your smile.
I didn’t know what it was that haunted you.
It caught me.
Like I knew somehow you were suffering
and there seemed to be no way out.
Like I knew.
