Can / Cannot

I cannot give you the wisdom of the world

for I am still looking for the secrets within myself.

 

I cannot teach you not to be afraid

for it is something you must find for yourself.

 

I cannot show you miracles and magic

for you don’t believe in me yet.

 

I cannot talk to you about the stars, the moon, the sky

for you have the ability to discourage me

every time I try.

 

I cannot show you and let you believe that money is not important

for everything you look and seek is… moneywise important.

 

I have failed to make you see the things I can create

for every time I try to breath “it’s not enough” is all you have to say.

 

I cannot make you understand how much love I feel for you

for you think that words have no matter

and they are the simplest “things” we have learned how to use.

 

And I try to make you see what words can do

But you keep saying

“show me actions, not words, that is what stays on”

But you forget that actions fade through time.

Though words stay strong and still

through every possible time.

 

So this is what I wrote for you

a small poem from my heart

so you can have it with you

and remember that the present

is the gold key as such:

 

I cannot give you tomorrow

for today is all I have,

but I can give you this moment

and to me this is my whole world unlocked.

Rainy days, rainy moments

Rainy drops on a rainy day

Makes your week rainy in every way

Make a wish and close your eyes

A rainy drop can make it right.

 

Snowflakes falling from the sky

A magical moment – don’t ask why

Don’t look down as they fall

Look up and see the windstorm

 

Close your eyes

Open your mind

The time is coming

That you will fly

 

Open your wings and stay still

Surrender your mind

And you will be free.

 

 

Τα Μαγικά Παιχνίδια

Πώς μου ήρθε χθες το απόγευμα στα ξαφνικά
Και άνοιξα το παλιό κουτί μου με τα μαγικά
Βρήκα μέσα τον Ντόναλντ και την Νταίζη
Και ένα παλιό γραμμοφωνάκι που ακόμα παίζει.

Ήρθες στην σκέψη μου πάλι το ίδιο ξαφνικά.
Ούτως ή άλλως μου το είχες πει: παντού υπάρχουν μαγικά.
Πώς θα σε διώξω τώρα μέσα από την σκέψη?
Αφού μέσα στην μυστική γωνιά μου έχεις μπλέξει.

Και να η Μίνι με τον Μίκυ κάνουν τσουλήθρα
Μέσα σε όλα μου τα κλειδωμένα μυστικά
Πάλι τους πήρες με το μέρος σου απλά
Όλους τους ήρωες που είχαμε παιδιά.

Το ίδιο ξαφνικά υπάρχει φως
Και η μυστική γωνία μου καθάρισε, για σένα δυστυχώς.
Ούτως ή άλλως στο είχα πει: παντού υπάρχουν μαγικά
Και όταν τα πιστεύουμε εμφανίζονται πάντα στα ξαφνικά.

Autumn Secrets

autumn-leaves-background-wallpaper-4

Autumn leaves falling on the ground

Autumn leaves without making a sound

Stardust is sitting on a bench

An afternoon that music

could be heard…

 

Yellow moments flying around

An accordion playing in the background

Small dancing steps show you the thing:

You can have your own set of wings!
