Poetry

Every now and then I feel the need to write down a couple of words, thoughts feelings that sound like poetry. Today I decided to collect them all and publish them on this page. Very random, Dutch and English, old ones and new. I have not burdened myself with rules and decided to just go with the flow.

Should you discover this page I hope you’ll enjoy it.

Will you catch me if I fall?

Will you catch me if I fall?

Can I let go of control?

Can I trust in you?

And allow insecurity?

Can I just let go?

Where is life taking me?

When I do let go?

Where does love lead me to?

Can I trust in you?

Take my hand and feel my trust

Take my hand and heart.

Sense the purity of soul

Sense me loving you.

Lead me blind-eyed down the road

Make my Self let go

Of the doubt and self control

In pure trust and whole.

Wanneer je droom in vervulling gaat

Wanneer je droom in vervulling gaat

Zeg je dan “nee”

Omdat het eng voelt, te groot .. een beetje te veel

Of .. luister je naar je hart

Dat danst van vreugde

Omdat ergens, ver weg

Jouw wens is gehoord

Laat los die angst, laat gaan die onzekerheid

Dans van vreugde en weet, dat je het aankunt

Geniet, straal en ga ervoor.

 

When your dream comes true (translation of the Dutch poem)

When your dream comes true

Do you say “no”

Because it feels scary, too big, a bit too much

Or .. do you listen to your heart

Dancing from joy

Because somewhere, far away

Your wish has been heard

Let go of that fear, let go of that insecurity

Dance from joy and know that you Can

Enjoy, shine and go for it.

Prayer inspired by the child victims of the plane crash with the MH 17 over the Ukraine on July 17, 2014

Mother, Father God.

Today we are addressing you as children, looking for guidance. Being a Spiritualist I know that there is no death. That what we call death is just the beginning of the next stage in our eternal progress.

How can we begin to help and support all the people in mourning, filled with grief, because they have lost loved ones in this terrible plane crash, caused by human hands, by people who just want to manifest something that is so different from the love and kindness we need so much in this world of ours.

There is no way to comprehend deeds like that, let alone accept them.

This prayer is a call for guidance. This prayer expresses the need for love and light. This prayer is an expression of hope for a world where we can find the time to see beauty all around us. This prayer is to once again work with the three famous words expressed by a great man, who fought for what he believed was right ..

“I have a dream”

I have a dream that one day there will be peace on earth

That people will accept each other for who they are

That there will be no more fighting and no more pain

That there will be no more fear and we can all be free.

“I have a dream”

I have a dream there will be laughter and only tears of joy

That we can understand each other without using words

That can so easily be misunderstood..

That we can reach out full of TRUST and sunny thoughts.

Through our eternal togetherness.

AMEN

Do I see a little bird in the sky?

Do I see a little bird in the sky?

A bird that is showing ..

through grace and happiness

Of its love for life and its need to be

Is there a lesson for me to see?

Being part of a greater plan sounds so important

So why not accept it for what it is

The wheel of life turns slowly and steadily

Gives the opportunity to experience

What life is, what Love is, what Beings is

And on and on it goes

Always room to recover

Always room to heal

Always room to pick up the pieces

Always room to view and consider

Do I see a little bird in the sky ?
