Friedensengel / Angel of Peace

Illuminating presence over the city
guardian while Munich sleeps
with his olive branch bringing the blessings
of the Angel of Peace

What is Love?

What describes love the best?
The way it makes you feel?
Or the sacrifice it’s willing to make?
The passion or the comfort?
The peace or the fight?
At the end of the road
You will find out the answer:
Love is All or Nothing.

Iris & Felicia Filip – Baby

“You didn’t know how lonely I was,
You hid your eyes from the very start,
Years pass by and life goes on,
I’m searching for you day and night, I’m searching for you,
But I know it’s in vain!

Baby, I know that you’re going to meet
A stranger who’ll take you to the fairy-tale house,
What a luck, what great bad luck
That time extinguishes everything,
But fire begets fire!
Give one more day of your life
To the man who used to tell you:

Baby, baby, baby, you will be mine,
Like a sunrise
After the hard night,
Baby, baby, baby, you will be mine,
You are the only love, only love, the last one…

Our shadow falls over the past,
There was no one like us when we met,
We will pretend, just like we did so far,
That everything is good, but we will be nothing more than smoke.
Give one more day of your life
To the man who used to tell you:

Baby, baby, baby, you will be mine,
Like a sunrise
After the hard night,
Baby, baby, baby, you will be mine,
You are the only love, only love, the last one…

It’s Fall in my life, everything’s burnt to ashes,
I knew you’ll leave, but let me tell you:

Baby, baby, baby, you will be mine,
Like a sunrise
After a hard night!
Baby, baby, baby, you will be mine,
Like a sunrise
After a hard night!

Baby, baby, baby, you will be mine,
You are the only love, only one, the last one even!
Baby, baby, baby, you will be mine,
Like a sunrise
After a hard night,
Baby, baby, baby, you will be mine,
You are the only love, only love, the last one!

You will be mine!”

Rodrigo & Gabriela – Stairway to Heaven


memyselfandela

Most people are horrified by the thought of solitude, but isn’t solitude a part of ourselves?
That voice that speaks when all others leave us, that part that never betrays us?
It takes lots of strength to be true to ourselves, deep inside, there where we are alone,
Where there are no more veils to cover our soul, nor things to distract us.
No more ideas to kidnap our eyes, only ourselves, simple, stripped, in the middle of reality.
Do you know the feeling? There’s such a surreal beauty inside.
Take a deep breath and welcome yourself.

Lady

1-head-of-a-girl-john-william-waterhouse

See an angel in every woman
and treat them all with greatest respect
for it was a woman who brought you into this world.

Wear your feminity with pride
and be bold and brave
for the soul of a woman has many to bear in life.

They might call you lady out of respect
or they might just admire your outer beauty
though one must be born a lady to ever be one.
