A STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN
 
The day I was born …
On a beautiful spring morning
The sun was joyfull and smiling
Welcoming a beautiful girl !
Which they called Hera!
Angels ripped the sky
And they sang psalms and hallelujahs!
Hovering over the crib …
A fairy appeared …Dressed in blue!
I wide open my eyes in amazement…
And she quieted me in the meantime …
Do not be afraid…It’s me that’s here.
The Fairy Sensible !
I’ll always look after you.
And help you in your earthly stage!
I long for a long life …
Full of pitfalls and a lot of affront …
You came to this world …
To wash the soul … to purge sins…
With which you left …
Always your way, I will light
It’s up to you to clear it !
You will not have powers or wealth of law …
But good thinking !
All the treasure will be given to you at birth !
Gold, diamonds, neurons and beauty !
The gold stays in the heart …
In the soul the diamonds …
The neurons in the mind !
And beauty in all your being, as before!
Throughout your life … it is evident,
You will use your treasure, as you please …
The more you give it away … the bigger it gets !
And that’s a pertinent question …
It is because of your possessions …
Where your I, will shine …
That you will have a troubled life …
Calming only at the end !
And then enjoying the deserved happiness!
I did not realize anything … what the fairy said …
But I was very smiling!
I went through many trials …
I suffered from pain and abuse
Rage, hatred and slander…
Lies and betrayals…
That I’ve been silencing …
Gagged in rags !
I skipped valleys, rivers and mountains …
So many were my works …
I did not fall …
I leaned on my prayers!
Only God knows what I suffered …
All because of jealousy !
My life was troubled …
I made joy of the sorceries!
In times of distress…
I screamed for the fairy Sensible …
Who always gave me an hand …
Without ever asking me for anything!
And her look and her smile
They were my consolation…
To my longed for relief !
In many instances, I felt myself faint …
So many times, I wanted to die!
But the force, which has always guided me…
It was the same, it always saved me !
Now I cling to life,
As a castaway, to his lifeline …
I saw the children of the nation die…
Missing a ball of broth and bread !
It is in the chest a pain so strong
We call without ceasing…
Death itself!
But she does not come …
It’s full of mystery … and nuances …
And time, becomes our ally…
Care for wounds with care !
But the scars remain …
Each scar is a step…
On the ladder of ethereal merit !
Oh, my God…
I have the body covered with scars…
And in the soul the teeth of the lions …
Father… how many …?
How many echelons …
To get to heaven?!
 
 
 
COME, LOVE
 
Come, love….
 
You are strong air of the sea …
That sweeps my burning body …
Thirsty of you!
 
You are fresh water !
That trickles down my boiling body …
And refreshes and caresses me …
Break the boil …
Quiet the heart!
 
You are the cascade where I shower naked
Where a thousand kisses seduce me and captivate me …
A million hugs dominate the frenzy …
 
Come, love…
Dilute yourself in me …
Under the scorching moonlight that comes from the moon!
 
And you came … afraid … but you came!
 
What did you fear, my love?
That I could not love you?
That I did not want you anymore?
 
Our bodies vibrated in unison …
Our souls have merged …
Our hearts have become Siamese …
Our fluids run together on the same river …
How many months to get to the sea?
 
What does it matter now?
 
Time has stopped … there is no time …
We are together …
We’ll get there!

Maria Dulce
That is my name! And I am Maria Dulce, why?
Someone told me that the name fits me like a glove!
Maria is a blessed name!
It is the name of mother of Jesus!
Dulce means sweet!
And I am sweet, I am tender, I am in love!
I am very passionate about life!
I am confident, trustworthy and friendly!
I am affable, frank, genuine, transparent!
I am loyal to my ideology …
To my beliefs, to my principles!
I fight for love and peace on Earth!
One day…
Let’s all shake hands and make a happy world!
I dream of the day, in which we will all be brothers!
 
I am daughter of Lourdes and Manuel !
Sister of Ana, mother of André and Soraia!
 
Lover of reading, writing, flowers, sea!
Lover of music, nature, animals!
I have dreams! Everybody has!
And they are beautiful dreams…
Because I dream that someday …
All Peoples will understand each other!
 
I do not like lying, hypocrisy, falsehood!
I am afraid of the darkness and snakes …
 
I would like to get to know the Orient!
Spend some time in Tibet! Climb the Himalayas!
At Easter, take a trip to the Philippines!
To miss Africa, where I lived when I was a girl!
I wanted to go around the world!
Realize the dreams that lie within me …
 
I am from my beautiful Portugal, that I love!
A garden planted by the sea!
And I live in England, a wonderful island !
Ruled by Her Majesty Elizabeth, the Queen !
 
I fight for love and peace among the Peoples!
And I dream that someday this will happen!
And so comforted by such positive thoughts …
In hope I fall asleep!
Embraced by my name, who honors and defines me!
And to my parents, i say thank you!
