How to tell you

How to tell you,
That I need so much by my side,
That without you my days are  longer,
If you only know, how much I miss you,

It’s impossible to forget you,
& rip you away from soul,
Your memory is still in my mind,
But now you aren’t here,

What do I say to my heart,
When it asks me about you?
What do I do, when I need your fragrance & your body,
What do I do, when I’m alone and I need you just a little bit,
What do I say, when you’re far from me,

What do I say to my thoughts, even when I want to & try,
I am not able to forget you & erase you,
Tell please, how did you do it?
What do I say to all the stars,
When one day they ask me about you,
What do I say to the whole world?
When they see that you’re not with me.


Life & Death

look at love
how it tangles
with the one fallen in love

look at spirit
how it fuses with earth
giving it new life

why are you so busy
with this or that or good or bad
pay attention to how things blend

why talk about all
the known and the unknown
see how the unknown merges into the known

why think seperately
of this life and the next
when one is born from the last

look at your heart and tongue
one feels but deaf and dumb
the other speaks in words and signs

look at water and fire
earth and wind
enemies and friends all at once

the wolf and the lamb
the lion and the deer
far away yet together

look at the unity of this
spring and winter
manifested in the equinox

you too must mingle my friends
since the earth and the sky
are mingled just for you and me

be like sugarcane
sweet yet silent
don’t get mixed up with bitter words

my beloved grows
right out of my own heart
how much more union can there be
