A Chance to See


Born to me a vision from afar

You emerged from a longing

Awakened as from a deep dream

A vision of my world renewed;

Taken by the light in your smile

Could never go back, the past reconciled

You reached out with your hand

No obstacle to discourage you;

You cast your doubts upon the water

Sown out to sea, gathered up by the gloom

In your life you sacrificed

You were always committed;

With a cleared-eye vision

You had a true instinct

For what was beautiful

You lived on the other side of silence;

I was showered by this brightness

You revealed in me something more solid

Through your radiance I have grown

I love you for giving me a chance to see.

a great chance too see Tinka, of course you and I have been seeing for a long time. Sometimes I wonder if our vision is clear, but I know our hearts and souls are. The way we spill the beans our jars should be empty...

It’s truly amazing when two souls can speak the same language so closely. That when they speak in collaboration: Their words become one. And the rhythm of their breathing becomes a dance. Moving the beat of one heart. Bravo…

Tinks ...

Just gorgeous atmosphere you create here Sissy. Several lines are like platinum honey ...

"You emerged from a longing" and

"You lived on the other side of silence;"

This collaboration is definitely rocking with momentum. Well done!

Oodles of love and kudos from big bro ...
