I SEE  Y O U  

I wake up some mornings
thank God not as often as I used to
slow and heavy from dreams with you
you’ve found a way back in
once again my long lost friend
funny to see that after all these years*I miss you the same

So I drag myself to the corner café
and for a second I see you there
like in the good old days
and I wonder what you’re doing ?
what are you up to these days ?
I sometimes wish you would call me
buth then I wouldn’t know what to say

and I see you,in every cab that goes by, in the strangers at every cross road, in every bar 


it takes a glass or two
for it to settle down
for your shadows to stop following me
around
I find myself walking back
to all the places we knew
dreaming and wishing
to somehow run into you

And of course I wonder
does it happen to you ?
Does my ghost ever come looking for you ?

and I see you….

THE ROSERONSARD, 1550. See, Mignonne, hath not the Rose, That this morning did unclose Her purple mantle to the light, Lost, before the day be dead, The glory of her raiment red, Her colour, bright as yours is bright? Ah, Mignonne, in how few hours, The petals of her purple flowers All have faded, fallen, died; Sad Nature, mother ruinous, That seest thy fair child perish thus 'Twixt matin song and even tide. Hear me, my darling, speaking sooth, Gather the fleet flower of your youth, Take ye your pleasure at the best; Be merry ere your beauty flit, For length of days will tarnish it Like roses that were loveliest.

THE ROSE
RONSARD, 1550. 

See, Mignonne, hath not the Rose, 
That this morning did unclose 
Her purple mantle to the light, 
Lost, before the day be dead, 
The glory of her raiment red, 
Her colour, bright as yours is bright? 

Ah, Mignonne, in how few hours, 
The petals of her purple flowers 
All have faded, fallen, died; 
Sad Nature, mother ruinous, 
That seest thy fair child perish thus 
'Twixt matin song and even tide. 

Hear me, my darling, speaking sooth, 
Gather the fleet flower of your youth, 
Take ye your pleasure at the best; 
Be merry ere your beauty flit, 
For length of days will tarnish it 
Like roses that were loveliest.

THAT ONE TIME IN   I S T A N B U L 
as fear surrounded us
we clung to the great name
that kept us from shame
it wipes our blackness clean
a new hope 
set free
the closer we get
old darkness encroaches
wherever we go
my feet touch the shore
wasn’t the plan when I woke up today
or
when I’m home under covers
I daydream
he is there, by my side
in crowded elevators
lets me wander, exist
off I go, in stormy weather
doesn’t matter what happens to me
proclaiming his goodness
smell the perfumed air
know this to be true
hand to god
happiness isn’t lost
even when I am dying

THAT ONE TIME IN   I S T A N B U L 

as fear surrounded us

we clung to the great name

that kept us from shame

it wipes our blackness clean

a new hope 

set free

the closer we get

old darkness encroaches

wherever we go

my feet touch the shore

wasn’t the plan when I woke up today

or

when I’m home under covers

I daydream

he is there, by my side

in crowded elevators

lets me wander, exist

off I go, in stormy weather

doesn’t matter what happens to me

proclaiming his goodness

smell the perfumed air

know this to be true

hand to god

happiness isn’t lost

even when I am dying

PULL ME  C L O S E R 
warm me up
pull me close
was oh so lost
but now I’m found
its clear to see
to feel my love
with all I could give
few honeycombed words
help sweeten the soul
kiss me some more
tonight, this is what I need
inside your arms lover
this heart soars
kisses for the road
of this I’m sure
away from the crows
the other so blind
with one more kiss
in another time 
that kiss, that kiss
like when we were young
thats the way I like it
we existed
every now and then
in the corners of my mind
forget you you were one of them

There comes a time for reflection
to set aside moments and wonder who
will be there in the end
at the end of the road
when doors are closed
and the knocking subsides
close your eyes
return the keys
hair has a mind of its own

Do not fall in love with people like me.
I will take you to
museums, and parks, and monuments,
and kiss you in every beautiful
place, so that you can
never go back to them
without tasting me
like blood in your mouth.
I will destroy you in the most
beautiful way possible.
And when I leave
you will finally understand,
why storms are named after people.

REMEMBER THAT SONG
you forget, you just dance
you forgot what is
and
remember what was
you don’t forget the joy
or forget how to dance
when the music plays
you lose yourself
for a moment
for just a song
this thank you goes out
to all those musicians
who gave us the freedom
to run around and be carefree

SHADOWS AND  S O U L S
didn’t we wander off
waiting for the next world
searching, tempted in all its glory
led away from golden streets
choirs of angels escaping us 
our world fades away
and the doors are flung open once again
we step towards these colors
into the unknown, by faith
there will be forgiveness
there will be no more to fear
love has found us, in each others eye
out in the horizon, there
 our worlds collide
when dirt and paintcans illuminate
we will call upon him
say his name in secret
every time, yes
to find rest, to savor wisdom
until the ends of time
you cannot be free until you ask

SHADOWS AND  S O U L S

didn’t we wander off

waiting for the next world

searching, tempted in all its glory

led away from golden streets

choirs of angels escaping us 

our world fades away

and the doors are flung open once again

we step towards these colors

into the unknown, by faith

there will be forgiveness

there will be no more to fear

love has found us, in each others eye

out in the horizon, there

until the ends of time

E V E R Y W H E R E  WE GO
there is a space, a moment
between meals, silence rests
the innermost place, whispers
the devil and god play their games
the battles already won
but they play whose turn is it?
playing with destruction
dangling resurrection around
to do what is necessary
with whatever lies round
ammunition
retribution
regret
inadequacies
forgiveness
it is one step at a time
away from prying eyes
between you and your God
honestly my hand is extended
my hearts almost full
paradise awaits some
I have already forgiven you
could you pass the potatoes?
