Blueprint

We knew, in a way
What we wanted
What we wished for

In a way, with nothing coming
To keep us away
For too long

We didn’t know
And it came
Like an unwanted surprise

We didn’t know
What was coming our way
Keeping us apart

Not too long
But enough
To make us wander

Enough time
For emptiness to grow
Our voices lost in day to day routine

Where do we stand between
Family gatherings
Our own familiar dreams

Where do we belong
In this new blueprint?

Place of Love

I am finding my way
Against the crowd

Allowing myself to feel blessed
By words I’ll never hear

Some are able to say love
When others are hiding their feelings

Love is somewhere else
In a place of childhood memories

Well kept forever
So we can find them
When tides are high
And our hearts search in vain
A place to stop
Or start again

Friends Apart

We used to be…

Life came in
With its ups and downs
Days apart
Years ahead of us
Unknowing of what will last

We used to be…

Knowing by heart
The good and the bad
Feelings kept
Mess being said
Out loud

We used to be…

Never without time
For best wishes
Never thinking
It would not last

We used to be friends

True, safe and secure harbor
Tears shared
Falling apart in one another’s arms

Maybe something happened
Something I am not aware of
Or maybe it’s just life
Me leaving and you staying

Maybe you belong to the past
A past I could have never bore without you
Your smile brought light into darkness
Your golden heart

I do miss you my friend
I left you somewhere near the river
I don’t know why you’re not there anymore
We drifted away maybe

I’m left with question marks
All over the place
Maybe it’s the way life goes

Letting you fly
Letting you decide what’s best to try
Knowing that if you wish, one day
To come back and play
I’ll be there, by the shore
Ready to start again where we left it

Just if you…
