I’m ready

I used to be afraid of everything
Avoiding my own deepest feeling
Everytime others moved too fast
I felt apart
I counted the words inside my head
And my face turned into bright red
Whenever someone stared at me
I just wanted to vanish and feel free
Life was easy though
Because the usual things flow
Naturally
Simply
Now I’m ready to unwrap my wings and fly
I’ll use my imagination to colour the sky
In green and blue
As long as there will be me and you.

En tête à tête

I gave you wings
But it was you who made me fly
I gave you space
But it was you who set me free
I gave you my support
But it was you who brushed me up when I most needed it
I give you several reasons to be happy
But it is who puts a smile on my face
I give you strength
But it is you pushes me further
I give you love
But it is you changes my world
I keep listening to your dreams
But it is who makes impossible things happen.

Volare!

Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.

Langston Hughes

Close your eyes
Open your wings and fly
Imagine you’re free
Trust me
You’re about to live
Something special and unique
Dreams know no boundaries
Life is also made of sweet memories.

Sweet paloma
Has lost her wings
And her own heart is into pieces
The sky is no longer blue
Even the wind has gone away
Broken dreams
The whole world is against her
But she keeps struggling
Every day
Silence is a strength
Joy can be found through darkness
No time for regrets
No space for sadness
Fly paloma
One day you’ll be high.

Fly away

Come with me
Let’s fly away

Forget your luggage
You won’t need any belongings

Hold my hand
I will show the world

The fresh grass will be our bed
And the sky the only roof above our heads

Trust me
I will never let you down

Don’t think twice
Together we are stronger

Just say yes
And this amazing journey may begin

Are you ready?
The stars are willing to be our guides

Come with me
Let’s fly away.

Strolling around

I miss traveling
I miss taking the plane, the train or even the subway
I miss my family and friends around the world
I miss my freedom
My wings have not been cut off yet
So I might be strolling around more often.
