Coming Home


The empty space
Between you and me,
Can make it hard
Sometimes to be.

But time passes,
Day by day,
Soon you’ll be in
My arms to stay.

And all the pain
That we went through
Will be all worth it
When I’m with you.

For Granted


Under the endless skies,
We seem so small.
Yet we run this place,
Thinking we know it all.

This world full of wonders,
For granted it’s taken.
And all of its miracles
In greed are forsaken.

Might be time to rethink,
Hold dear what us was given.
And hope that for our mistakes
We will be forgiven.

By My Side


A piece of heaven,
On earth I found.
As my heart was
By you unwound.

Your presence now,
In my life lingers,
Just like the touch
Of your soft fingers.

You make it all
Much more worth while,
And fill my heart,
Each time you smile.

We’re now together
For this ride,
I’d want no one rather,
By my side.

How many times
Will you kill my heart,
Until you realize
You can’t push true love away?

How many stabs
Will you take,
Until you understand
That I am here to stay?

How many nights
Will it take,
Until you grasp
You deserve to be loved?

How long
will you fight
Until you see the good
That was always meant to be?

You and me.

Green and blue,
Can make your soul
Feel brand new.

Out in the open air,
breathing in the universe,
As the yellow rays of the sun
Wrap around our spirit,
Lifting it up from solid ground,

As we live,
In this single moment in time.

3 Things about myself:
– my mind is always thinking in lyrics, music is in my head the entire day (which might also explain my other blog)
– writing poems and stories has been a passion of mine since the age of eight, when I could write my first short stories and coherent sentences
– I get my best ideas while driving

Now to answer Bachir Khallas questions:

  1. How much do you know yourself? I feel I know myself pretty well, but I learn new things every day!
  2. How much time do give to yourself weekly? Usually, Saturday or Sunday are ‘my’ days, no work, just me.
  3. What are your plans for the next 2 years? Just to be happy, isn’t that all that matters? 🙂
  4. How far would you go to leave everything you have and move to another country? Why?      I would have no problem to leave my country, if my heart is in it, and if another heart is waiting for me in another country! 🙂
  5. What is your unachievable dream? I believe every dream is achievable
