I Would Live In Your Love...


Ask no more 

to know me

If you can watch me



Don't carve with your inspired hands

Don't cut me to know what I am


Have you ever seen

A flower ...

A bird ...

Singing ...

Dancing ...

with stars ...with wind ... with rain ...


It is love ...

that gives roots to grow

against a hot Sun and heavy rains



I would live in your love

as the sea waves in sea

I will follow your soul as it leads


Ask me not

Ask no more

I am nothing but love

Watch me with careful eyes

If you want to know ...






When the meteors drop into the grave

When the moon floats  on the wave

My castles are  blown in thin air

Drops of tears fill an ocean in my prayer .


In every helplessness  I strive

With my eyes open I dream

From sunrise to next sunrise

When the silent leaves are still around  me

In the shadow of mighty hills .


Again  I straighten my back

To climb up the same hill with a new hope

When my heart is injured

I need to lean  on your shoulder


Would you like to wait a while for me

Will you help me spread my wings

The sky is starry !

See how night is celebrating its beauty !



Lost Goddess


Now no more I am yours

My soul is empty of dreams

And I am lying  speechless here

My lips have no power to sing


You are that  master craftsman

And me  a  raw  stone

How can I forget those golden hours

of lonely night that are lost forever


With patience, your hands

chiseled unfaded glimmering beauty

I rose like a stunning piece of art

A sculpture, a goddess of love and beauty


With  tender touch

you filled me up with songs

I stretched my hands

to gather handful of hope


A wrong stroke of chisel

broke me into pieces

Colours of life  washed away

I am on a bed of ruin

Before me  endless void .
