The Shadow of Your Smile

The Shadow of Your Smile

One day we walked along the sand
One day in early spring
You held a piper in your hand
To mend its broken wing
Now I’ll remember many a day
And many a lonely mile
The echo of a piper’s song
The shadow of a smile

The shadow of your smile
When you are gone
Will color all my dreams
And light the dawn
Look into my eyes
My love and see
All the lovely things
You are to me

Our wistful little star
Was far too high
A teardrop kissed your lips
And so did I
Now when I remember spring
All the joy that love can bring
I will be remembering
The shadow of your smile

Songwriters: Paul Webster / Johnny Mardel

Even Lijkt Het Eeuwig Lente

Even lijkt het Eeuwig

Tot de bloesem uitvliegt
Dartelend als sneeuw.
Klein insect
Als schoonheidsvlek.

Op het water drijven
Rose drenkelingen
Om de boom nog even
Vrolijke confetti
Als laatste groet
Het feest is weer voorbij

Tere blaadjes
Kleuren langzaam bruin
En verdwijnen
In het grauw tapijt
Van de voorbije winter.

Just Talking

communication is always a plus.

late at night when i finally tell you
that i don’t know you.

and i want to.

and you respond in the perfect way;
you just talk to me

about the shit that matters, for once

not about our plans for the day or the monotonous “i miss you, do youmissme?”

but about the inside of your soul

you take it out of your bellybutton
turn it inside out
and show me,

i needed this
to make sense of myself.
