one and the same

ghost from the past,
where did you come from over night?
face in the crowd,
suddenly clearly in my sight.

the world frozen still –
while my mind spins back in time
I look behind –
catching the glance that’s seeking mine

and I know that you know,
that we both were in that place
where a body and mind
are one and the same

how life has passed
didn’t you notice on the way?
no time for doubt
all that we see is all there is.

and the light in your eyes
strikes a fire to the bridge
on the river in me – and I slip and fall
and get pulled down the stream like I did

out of sight out of heart for so many years
yet a void in the core of what made me to be
who I am where I stand it is suddenly shaking
the ground beneath my feet.

a hand reaches out
pulls me up on the shore
On the pavement we stand – once again
near the edge while the people rush by

all the steps that I took to the place where I’m now
How the path took a turn, and I followed it down
how I sailed with the wind and I ended up stream
in a place that is all that I know now it seems

The world picks up speed –
while my mind returns to now
I look behind –
catching the glance that’s seeking mine

and I know that you know,
that we both know that face
and our body and mind
are one and the same

herfst

Ik wil
geen sokken
geen sloffen
geen trui
geen schoenen
geen jas
geen regen
geen donker
geen stamppot
geen pepernoten
geen kaarsjes
geen samen onder een dekentje

of misschien toch

maar dan
buiten donker
buiten regen
buiten jas
buiten schoenen
buiten sokken
alleen wij twee onder een dekentje
misschien met sokken aan
