He always felt so frustrated

He always felt so frustrated
Being underestimated, that’s true.
Really, their opinions were dated.
He did his best to break through.

But as the years went on,
He grew older.
Everything has changed: rich watch, bored yawn;
Unhappy and harsh comments, eyes that are colder…

Yesterday he fired two of his men,
He said, “They laze”.

Both are wrong: those who did not appreciate him then
And he because he forgot and grew chary of praise.

You are with sad eyes

You are with sad eyes.
Courage, friend!
The sun will rise;
The day will come, the night will end.

Love is all I have, it’s true

Love is all I have, it’s true.
Love is what helps me break through.
But what else does a person need,
Whatever is her or his honest breed?

Life is different for a loving heart,
Simple happiness is its part.
Spread shoulders and bright eyes…
Love is a dove that flies!

All I have I owe to God

Etherington_Creek_Provincial_Recreation_Area,_Alberta,_Canada_-_creek_banks
All that I have, I owe to God:
My teeth, my eyes, my feet.
He raises me from every fall;
He nourishes me with fruit and wheat.

Peace and freedom are given by Him.
He strengthens me with a prayer!
His love and support for us never cease!
All that I have, I have by His care.

How rich we are

How rich we are;
How happy we could be;
Our friendship could be as a sparkling star.
Why do we refuse to see?

We have legs and hands, ears and eyes as well…
Isn’t it enough to form a world-wide community;
Isn’t it enough to help those who fell?
Power is in our unity.

All the world’s gold
Isn’t worth a child’s wound or cry.
Peace! How many times we were told!
But tomorrow may be to late to try.

When I close my eyes

When I close my eyes,
I see you, baby.
I won’t tell lies.
Am I crazy? Maybe.

I don’t wonna lose you.
Hearing everywhere your voice:
In a gentle wind, in a kitten’s mew;
You are my choice.

Even if I go away,
I will miss you again.
If I am not able to stay,
I will always miss you then…
