Let’s go!

It’s the end of the world
So what?!
Grab my hand… let’s move on
Take your bike
Go for a walk
Enjoy the ride
Alone or with your best friend
If life gives you spoons
Eat an ice-cream
If you have knives instead
Cut everything except your head
If the sky showers your brain with heavy rain
Forget the umbrella
Be grateful!
Your villain thoughts will be washed away
Remember the best is yet to come
Meanwhile, let’s party!

Letter to a friend

Reprise

Dear friend,
I’m counting the days for Spring to come
You know I dislike Winter time
If you were here, we could stroll on the beach
Feeling free and released
Have I told you that I have a dog?
Poppy is sweet and strong
Do you remember
When we used to sing and dance?
Every moment together was a real chance
You were young and full of energy
Heaven took you away so soon from me
At night, I ask the stars
To guide you wherever you are
I keep the promise in your name
Although life will never be the same
One day, we’ll meet again
My dear friend.

Treasure

“The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched, they are felt with the heart.”

I found a precious treasure!
Where is it?
Right beside you!
Where? I can’t see it!
Look closer!
Is it a fancy car?
A diamond ring?
A big house?
A wallet full of money?
No, much better than that!
Really? I’m so curious!
Show me, please!
Look around you!
I still can’t see it
This beautiful desert beach!
Is that it? I’m so…
Disappointed?
Yes, that’s exactly the word!
I feel so sorry for you my friend
Why?
Because you are unable to see with your heart.

Still here

Don’t put flowers on my grave
Leave them in the garden instead

Forget your sorrow and pain
Shall we just dance again?

Don’t buy a fancy apartment
Live in a small house by the sea

Forget me once I’m gone
But stay with me until the end!

From Martinique with love

In order to write about life first you must live it.

Ernest Hemingway

A friend of mine sent me this picture. What a lovely gift! I love flowers and this one is special because it blooms in exotic places.
I wonder which name I’ll give it. I don’t care about its common name and even less to the scientific one. I’ll just call it… LIFE!
I know how trivial it is, but for the past year we almost forgot how magical life can be.
Shall this flower remind us that simple things can make the difference.
Shall this flower coulour up our sad days.
Shall this flower pink our lives.
Shall this flower envelop us in a soft fragrance.
Shall this flower help us to face our fears.
Shall this flower keep us on the bright side.
Shall this flower show us that love will never die.

La vie en rose

The world is a rose, smell it, and pass it to your friends.

Persian proverb

If I had a rose for every time I thought of you, I’d be picking roses for a lifetime.

Where is the moon?

The night is coming, slowly
The stars are already sparkling
In the black sky
Where’s the moon?
I can’t see her round face
Where is my friend tonight?
She’ll be here, I know it
Calling my name
She’s dancing alone
I fell like singing
To my dearest confident
Please stay with me, I beg
Don’t let me down
I don’t want to be on my own at midnight.
