El miedo juega a las escondidas
me sorprende cuando menos lo espero
Cuando abro mis manos y la esperanza escapa
como una mariposa frágil en su último vuelo.
Veo la luz que parte detrás de los cristales cansados
y los párpados pesan como el agua del mar
que corre dentro mio sin salida.
Tendida bajo el cielo, el miedo abraza
y no hay sonrisas ni colores pero aún hay tiempo,
tiempo de vencer al miedo

Footprints in the sand

One night I had a dream–
I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord
and across the sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints,
one belonged to me and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that many times along the path of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest
and saddest times in my life.
This really bothered me and I questioned the Lord about it.
“Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
you would walk with me all the way,
but I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life
there is only one set of footprints.
“I don’t understand why in times when I needed you most,
you should leave me.”
The Lord replied, “My precious, precious child,
I love you and I would never, never leave you
during your times of trial and suffering.
“When you saw only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you.”

Do it anyway

Stay by my side…

Sit here by my side and hold the time

so I can keep with me like a still picture

this moment when we leave words apart.

Of all the languages known to man

 which one could explain the miracle of just look inside your eyes

and find what I though I lost

when I didn’t carry the weight of the world?

 Stay by my side as I try to reach the little candles from the sky

How much they remind me of the light I see in you! …..

It’s like all joy could glow in my hands

So rest beside me in loneliness

and hold on to this perfect silence

If I could give you something else

than these little simple things they are yet to be made.

 Sit here by my side and hold this minute

And ill remain with you for ever.

A Goodbye – Writting from my heart and mind

There are so many songs I can not write

There are so many songs in my heart I dare not to sing

like I could bleed my love on every note

and close my eyes and see life as it is without you

So I stand still in this lonely room with

the forgotten piano that filled the summer’s night

with the melody we danced under the stars.


I just look upon the sky and wonder quietly

who gets to kiss your eyes when you’re falling asleep?

I sit by the window and feel your presence

on every life awaken outside

because you’ll live in me for always

but there’s nothing I can do but let you go now.


As you slowly vanish away, I can only recall …

You were everything my world needed to keep still,

You were my only inspiration and my truth above all

now you´re gone and I’m left with fragments of a life

until you can find some peace at heart and

I can find a reason to smile and let me fall into eternity.

Last Night – A sigh from my heart and mind

Somedays i feel the need to put into words things i see, think, feel or wish… Most of the times i find that the result is dissapointing for me but a few times it´s ok.

I would like to share one of my “poems”, this is called Last Night and was written april 21st of 2008. All opinions are welcome and please forgive my grammar mistakes and let me know so i can correct them.

Last night I prayed and you were in my thoughts  

I felt the weight of the pain of the world and

became smaller than a fragment of sand

How can my heart be so full of love

and my hands be so empty?

I asked God if it was true than even the tiniest thing

can change the course of one life

but it was you who had the answer

It was you who never stop believing

and your faith was unbreakable

Last night I stared at the stars as

i renewed my hope in tomorrow

I was  standing at the edge of my fears

and I heard your voice, 

like a nocturne whisper,

saying don’t give up 

So I prayed like every night and I recalled

the last moment I saw the light in your eyes

It hurts so much to see you

give out your heart and no one cares

So I asked God if He had a plan for us

but you think we already know the answer

It was you all along who had his hands open

and your faith remains unbreakable.

My first post is about love

I would like to start my blog with a beautiful poem by E.E Cummings .

I carry your heart with me

(I carry it in my heart)
I am never without it
(anywhere I go you go, my dear; and whatever is done by
only me is your doing, my darling)
I fear no fate
(for you are my fate, my sweet)
I want no world
(for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
I carry your heart

(I carry it in my heart)
