Shattered Dreams

Shattered Dreams

I should have known
I was a bone-
head not to see
what’s clear to me
now, when it hurts,
that words
as commitment and love
are nothing more than puff
of smoke,
since broke
the world has been for a while,
the hearts of people on a pile,
burning to ashes
in clashes
of ideologies of selfishness and hate.
How ever could I wait,
fall for the bait
of hope and trust
in people, when bust
is trust and faith and love,
no signs appearing from above
that there’s a future for us all
outside of pain, and so I call
up high
asking why
He could not leave to me
this tiny piece of normality.
No answer here
does now appear,
there was a theft,
now I’m bereft
of trust, and what is left
are so it seems
nothing but dreams
cutting like beams
and a poisoned dart
tearing apart
my heart.
Should I still wait,
while in a state
of hopelessness and pain,
could it not be in vain,
when wounds been slain
to lift my eyes
to the skies,
might I hear
what is dear,
could I dare
not to despair
not to scare
away from hurt.
Is there a word
that still is true,
a Word from You?

A Birthday Song for a Friend

Happy Birthday
English lyrics for the famous German  birthday song:  “Wie schön dass du geboren bist”:

HOW BEAUTIFUL THAT YOU WERE BORN

Today it might rain, it might storm or it might snow,
and still we see the sunshine in you from head to toe.
Thank you for your love and for the time we spend
Let’s laugh and cry and pray together my friend!
Let’s laugh and cry and pray together my friend!
—-
Refrain:
How beautiful that you were born,
we would have missed you I’d have sworn
how wonderful that you are strong
we wish you happy birthday all day long
——–

We send our wishes as prayers all up high
that in your future health and happiness may lie
Seeing you so happy, that is what we like.
Today we tell all sorrows
please go and take a hike
Today we tell all sorrows
please go and take a hike..

Refrain:
How beautiful that you were born,
we would have missed you I’d have sworn
how wonderful that you are strong
we wish you happy birthday all day long

Add another year now and don’t take it too hard
You will never change though nature’s aging part
Do now count your years and never you forget,
they are like a treasure you should not regret!
they are like a treasure you should not regret!
