lighter than air
brighter than light
longer than time
higher than stars
stronger than love

here and hereafter
butterfly prose
sonorous rainbows
yours mine theirs
eternal echoes of our

heartbeats

children of Icarus
we are all flying to the Sun
but even pure gold melts down

bodies made of wax
each of us shall pass away
and reduced to ashes of light

we’ll be like tiny Summer traces
words of Love
still unsaid

The evening breeze oscillates
between sadness and wisdom.

White ships move slowly.
The Moon shines brightly.

No matter if we built
a castle in the sky.

We had to learn
about dreams and Time.

When you look at the starry sky,
every moment lasts forever.

Take care

as we used to say
but when…
when cherry blossom petals fall,
will you be there?

Shadows of the Heart.
Shadows in the Light.
Everything fades away.
Everything but the Night.

I had a nightmare.
I lose the ground beneath my feet.
When…
when I join you,

seras-tu là?

shadow in quest of light
orphan seeking signs

the Sea touches my heart
the Wind carries my soul

I rise above the clouds
and the Moon shines

fears are gone
Love guides me

I was never born
I will never die

ombre éprise de lumière
enfant chercheur de signes

la mer a touché mon cœur
le vent porte mon âme

je m’élève au dessus des nuées
et la Lune étincelle

la peur s’en est allée
l’Amour me guide

jamais je ne suis né
jamais je ne mourrai
