Ich liebe die englische Sprache und englische Gedichte. Deshalb versuche ich hin und wieder mal welche zu schreiben, gleichzeitig ist es für mich eine Übung der Sprache. Mein Buch enthält ebenfalls ein paar englische Gedichte und hier dürfen sie natürlich auch nicht fehlen...

LOST

 

Lost in thoughts,

deep,

deeper,

lost for words,

until,

lost to the world.

FLYING

 

Doing things,

saying words,

forming a life,

defining the boundary,

simply thoughts are free. 



Let your mind wander,

leave limits behind,

at the time when,

you will see,

that you`re able to fly.

THE JOURNEY

 

The journey of a life,

wouldn`t have been mine,

if things didn`t come and go,

if they didn`t cause happiness and pain,

as they did.

 

The way I felt,

as I lived to see,

to stay,

close to me,

even closer,

they will always stay,

the end of the world itself,

will not be able to wrest these treasuries away.

ONCE AGAIN 



Can it be wrong what I feel inside?

Completely?

Fatal, upsetting, wickedly?

Pressing itself on me,

am I mistaken?

 

The question comes up once again,

and once again,

the answer is far.

STILL

 

I could admit the truth,

could admit the perception,

could admit,

it`s still holding tight,

still going strong,

suggesting itself,

taking the liberty,

still going without saying,

continuing endlessly.

OBSTINATELY

 

Effortless,

to keep,

hard to get rid of,

wants to rest,

obstinately.

 

Tender feelings,

since then,

which go along,

I really long to know

from time to time.

 

There,

inner,

safe and ever new it seems.

 

One day surely,

hopefully,

I will awake from these dreams.

BEING COMMITTED

 

Difficult,

some circumstances,

because of the circumstances.

 

Keeping within limits,

acting within limits,

no way to speak out,

what deeply moves.

 

Being committed,

once in a while,

like reeds swayed by the wind.

NEVER

 

Never,

is a word,

you better say never,

never think,

things don`t happen,

not to you,

impossible,

never,

never spares someone,

everyone,

has to endure something,

never say,

you can`t stand any longer,

you will,

because that`s living.

A SECOND

 

In the twinkling of an eye,

can hide,

quite something great.

 

A bright light arises,

with its shiny glaze,

keeps itself,

lasts for the rest of a whole life.

SILENT REALITY

 

The truth,

offside,

reality of the spirit,

not just a fairy story.

 

If minds think alike,

melt into each other,

such intensity,

unswerving.

RARE MOMENTS

 

Balanced moments,

rare,

through ups and downs we go mostly,

ups take us high,

allow to fly,

cruel downs,

release from high above,

in between these moments,

always there to stay,

enrich our lives,

with a sweet,

quiet melody.

DEAR FRIEND

 

You are,

a long way off,

but close,

inwardly,

touching my soul,

in eternity.

 

To know about you,

and to know you`re over there,

warmness,

in some way,

fulfills my better self.

NOWHERE

 

To walk,

for a while,

on the road to nowhere,

that seems to lead to the room of nowhere,

anyhow great,

to get lost,

to be doomed,

but nevertheless,

in case of finding the reason,

the decision is yours,

to turn round

and to remigrate.

PRECIOUS

 

Memories,

precious,

sheltered particularly,

precious,

images,

at the thought of,

lucent,

exceptionally.

 

If it not had been,

I would be poorer in mind,

definitely.

IMPOSSIBILITY

 

The more I saw,

all the more,

I demanded to know,

wanted to show,

never came to that.

 

Still deep inside,

trying to let go,

and not to lose the sight,

to let go,

impossibility,

the acceptable answer is,

maybe,

to turn it to something uniquely.

THE BREEZE (Haiku)

 

Hope, the summer breeze,
with its low voice will carry,
I miss you, really...

TEMPORARY

 

This planet,

huge to us humans,

tiny as a toy,

spinning around,

like a little ball in space,

in the face of the universe,

the bottom line is,

at any time,

this world as well,

will be a thing of the past.

ON THE WAY

 

Careless,
going my way,
without thinking about myself,
about my needs,
my hopes,
my dreams.

It is the longest way to go indeed,
maybe you will never catch yourself,
but at the end,
you will find,
your best friend.

PERHAPS

 

Should I or should I not?
A look at you,
A look at the trembling hands.
Dreams I have,
just smoke in the air.
Hold on to the dreams,
perhaps they come true one day.

STEPS

 

My steps I take,
draw the picture of my life,
sometimes with colors so bright,
and sometimes they fade,
fade away,
but one day,
while waiting patiently,
while bearing the drabness,
they come back,
lift me up,
and everything`s just easy,
like a child`s play.

WAITING

 

Waiting,

the seconds,

the minutes,

the hours pass by,

watching for something...

 

I am waiting,

disremembering,

by and by.
