Pieces of life

Embrace your life
Take it as a whole!
No sorrow, no pain, no regrets
No complaints and no requests

Don’t waste your time
Minutes are way too precious!
Don’t judge and don’t expect
More than others can offer you

The only thing you can take for granted
Is this moment
So make it unique and special
Enjoy the day! Everyday.

Life is a rollercoaster

Reprise

Have a nice day!
Even if it’s pouring down
And you forgot your umbrella
Even if you’re late
And you just missed the bus
Even if that stupid pigeon
Ruined you new suit 

Have a great day!
Even if you are sick
And you have no medicine
Even if you want to leave
But the others force you to stay
Even if you’re craving for a cigarette
But you quit smoking

Have a beautiful day!
Even if you’re vegetarian
And they only serve meat
Even if you pray for peace
But the war has already started
Even if you lost the love your life
For your best friend

Have an awesome day!
Even if you wish to work
But they are all on strike
Even if you judge your neighbour
But your son has a gun
Even if you dream with Champagne
But all you have is cheap wine

Have an extraordinary day!
Even if it’s raining cats and dogs
And you’re completely soaked
Even if you are only 38
But you already feel like 83
Even if you’re getting married
But suddenly, you’re not so excited.

Happy birthday… to me!

44 years of ups and downs
The Earth keeps turning around
Friends and family are my rock
And they know what I’m made of
I’m grateful for all I have
Moving forward step by step
Joyful days, blissful nights
I keep chasing my own lights
Every detail is a poem
In a perfect tandem
Sometimes things don’t work out
That’s what life is all about
Meanwhile, l shall have fun
Because yesterday is already gone
Happy birthday to me
Living wild and free!

Life is a party

Life is a party
With fireworks, loud music and colorful balloons
We are both the hosts and the guests.
We dance, we sing, we have fun until the end

Life is party
That takes place in a beautiful stage
We are both the actors and the audience
And everybody knows their own role

Life is a party
Where we are punished for being happy
Others think we are crazy whenever we laugh
Dreams, joy and hope are not welcome

Life is a party
With animals and sad clowns
Nothing is real, but we love the applause
And children are part of it

Life is a party
Where we are all victims and prisoners
Of our fears, our regrets, our mistakes
But we keep trying

Life is a party
Please, wake me up when the fuss is over.
