Fields of gold

Reprise

Rolling over the hill
Spinning around
Again and again
Bountiful harvest
Sore hands
Happy faces
Blissful landcsape
Children running
And laughing out loud
Chasing the dogs
And counting the cows.

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.

Breathe

My hair is blowing in the wind
The fresh air smoothes my face
Every wave opens a window of opportunities
Blissful peaceful mind
The sunset is not a farewell
But the hope that the best is yet to come.

I love how summer just wraps its arms around you like a warm blanket.

I could never in a hundred summers get tired of this.

Reprise

A child laughing
The petal detaching from the flower
An old lady smiling
The sun shining
A leaf dancing in the wind
The seasons passing by
An old man grumbling
The foaming wave rolling
A bird singing
The clouds clearing the sky
A fruit falling from the tree
The world spinning around
What is life after all
If not a sum of details?

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!

Life is a garden

Reprise

Life is a colourful garden
Dressed up in yellow, orange, white, rose and violet
Life is a beautiful garden
Where different fragrances wave the ones who pass by
Life is a magic garden
Showered with love and protected by the sun
Life is an unique garden
Where all sorts of flowers dance in the wind
Life is a secret garden
Are you willing to unveal it?

Summer VI

It’s a smile, it’s a kiss, it’s a sip of wine … It’s summertime!

Keep your face to the sunshine and you will never see the shadows.

Life is a firework!

Reprise

We were the four of us huddled together on the tiny balcony looking for the moon. But the fate decided otherwise. We had fireworks instead! We were so lucky! They came out of nowhere. So close and yet far enough. The children were thrilled.
My daughter started clapping her hands enthusiastically while my son kept saying « life is a firework ». And I truly believe he’s right.

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 who changes my world
I keep listening to my dreams
But it is you who makes impossible things happen.
