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

And let new life flow in
