Thanks to You

Thanks to you I live
Thanks to you I see
Thanks to you I learned
how not to live

Thanks to you I choose
Thanks to you I glow
Thanks to you I found
my way to shine proud

Thanks to you I know
Thanks to you I withdrew
Thanks to you I left
for the right path in life

Thanks to you I know what not
Thanks to you I forgot
Thanks to you I rebelled
to fight for what’s well

Thanks to you I found my light
Thanks to you I am right
Thanks to you I reject
everything that’s dark

Who are you?
Who am I?

You are you
I am I

From High to Low

She leaves him
From the lowlands to the high
He leaves her
From the low to the high
She leaves him from the low
to the highlands
He leaves her
From higher to the high and
She leaves him
From the high to the higher
He leaves her
from the higher to come home
She leaves him
from the higher to the lowlands
She went high to go home
He stayed high to go home
What a journey from low to high
For only one definitive goodbye

Poem 'From High to Low' by Ingeborg van Zuiden

She leaves him
From the lowlands to the high
He leaves her
From the low to the high
She leaves him from the low
to the highlands
He leaves her
From higher to the high and
She leaves him
From the high to the higher
He leaves her
from the higher to come home
She leaves him
from the higher to the lowlands
She went high to go home
 He stayed high to go home
What a journey from low to high
For only one definitive goodbye

Live

When everything is done
and everything is given
Your tears will dry
through the rays of the sun

Then it’s time for renewed living
and let the burdens behind
in the grave yard of your past
to make space in your mind
for living your dream at last

And let new life flow in
keeping the darkness outside
and let brightness win
Shine like the sun and
LIVE

Poem 'Live' by Ingeborg van Zuiden

Your tears will dry
through the rays of the sun

Then it's time for renewed living
and let the burdens behind
in the grave yard of your past
to make space in your mind
for living your dream at last

And let new life flow in
keeping the darkness outside
and let brightness win
Shine like the sun and
LIVE

Happy New Year

Poem 'Happy New Year' by Ingeborg van Zuiden

Trust

Trust your Heart

and be your own guard
’cause when you ignore your senses
you’ll end at the start
so…..
Follow your Heart
and make a good start
and make no offences
but follow your senses
and be a pure Heart

Colours

Yellow in the fields
Blues in my mind
as spring reveals the colours so kind
I feel the cold times leaving
to make place for warmth
from Grey to Gold weaving
a new pattern in my Heart

Poem 'Colours' by Ingeborg van Zuiden

Light of a friend

The light of a friend
shines in the dark days of December
As a guide to what you will always remember:
the true love of a dear friend

A beacon of brightness
and embrace soft and tender
Love and care in December
for that is what He has meant
by the beacon of light
to be kind and be a true friend

Poem 'The Light of a friend' by Ingeborg van Zuiden

Release

I pray for Christmas
I pray for peace
I pray for solutions
I pray for release

I pray for my husband
I pray for myself
I pray for my mother
and anyone else

that Christmas will bring us
peace, solutions and release
I pray for God
that Christmas will show Him
that at least what we do
is seeking for
PEACE
SOLUTIONS and
RELEASE

Poem 'Release' by Ingeborg van Zuiden

Hiding

Hiding behind a port
Hiding behind a source
Hiding behind a screen
Hiding in between
Hiding behind windows
Hiding behind doors
Hiding behind apples
Hiding and be unseen
Hiding Hiding Hiding
There’s nothing left for seeing
Hiding Hiding Hiding
as if there is no being

Poem 'Birds' by Ingeborg van Zuiden

The Golden Connection

Tears of cumulative strain
losing connection of what was in vain
filling a pond of teardrops
from a waterfall of pain
leaving all that remains
to where my old life stops
with opportunities to gain
with freedom in my brain
looking over the mountain tops
through the rainbow colored rain
I have reached my personal domain
