Before sunset

Every sunset brings the promise of a new dawn.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

It is almost impossible to watch a sunset and not dream.

There is nothing more musical than a sunset.

Claude Debussy

The water was glassy and calm, still candy-colored in the afterglow of sunset.

Life does not come with instructions on how to live, but it does come with trees, sunsets, smiles and laughter, so enjoy your day.

Debbie Shapiro

There’s a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they’re absolutely free. Don’t miss so many of them.

Sunset is so marvelous that even the sun itself watches it every day in the reflections of the infinite oceans!

Mehmet Murat Ildan

Sunsets are proof that no matter what happens, every day can end beautifully.

Never give up

Sometimes missions can’t be accomplished at the first time
As a consequence, we get frustrated
Suddenly, the sky is covered by thick grey clouds
Even the sun has abandoned us
But giving up is never an option
Frustrations are great opportunities to start all over again
Put yourself together, close your eyes and take a deep breath
You can do it!
Just be patient
Time is the best healer.

Sunny side up

Reprise

After the storm comes the sun, they say
So we had a beautiful blue sky
The heavy drops have washed away our pain
We are ready to live your dreams again
Birds have returned to the shore
And our love has grown even more.

After work

Reprise

While a few take the subway
I stroll along the sea
Big cities have skyscrapers
My town has a castle
Pigeons are everywhere
Except here!
You’ll only come across seagulls and birds
Some children play in the shopping centers
Ours have the beach as their playground
I am blessed and grateful for living in such a beautiful place.

Blue sky

The moon is hanging here
Shy and small
The clouds are only spots
A mist of purple
Or is it violet?
And the sky…oh my!
It’s wide deep blue.

Love…

Reprise

Love is a blue sky on a winter day
Knowing that tomorrow is already today
Love is whishing the sun will never sleep
So, the moon he shall meet
Love is softness and kindness
White and smooth like the snow
Love is here and now
Keep trying, give me hope
Love is all we have
And it will save us in the end.

Illusion

Endless sky
Infinite opportunities
Unlocked secrets
Unlimited possibilities
(Im)possible dreams?

Moon in a purple sky

Purple sky
Above my head
Violet dreams
Is all I have
White moon
Dancing alone
Pink thoughts
I am on my own.

I’m ready

Photo : Filipa Moreira da Cruz

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.

Luna

Whenever you feel like giving up
Remember
Once the sun falls asleep
The moon starts dancing
In the purple sky
Again and again.
