An oasis of peace
 
“If you look for something with enough courage, you will find everything you want. They may have a lot of other things to ignore, and only one of them can be true.”
 
I woke you up …
I see you struggling …
I know what’s happening to you now!
I told you: You are good … too good …
 
You said to me:
– I was, but I haven’t been for a long time,
They killed goodness and compassion in me,
even love itself.
My soul is hardened, I see no loyalty,
Created a weapon to defend myself …
But my words work wonders for you:
– You are good … too good …
 
You want to know if I’m the one you’re looking for,
why did I leave a trace on you ?!
You believe I’m that dream girl,
I am important to you and the protection I give you.
 
And you build a new you’re-my world
a new hall surrounded by your hands,
lavishly decorated with a vision of happiness and dreams.
You separate us with a high wall from the outside world
protect our oasis of found peace …
 
Miserable being, don’t be afraid, I’m telling you.
I will spread a little light in your thoughts so as not to frighten you,
I will walk carefully with your soul as on silk pillows,
knit gold embroidery with silk threads around the heart,
weave a precious mosaic of life …
You have the same significance for me.
Because the chosen ones enter my world …
becouse I rarely leave the hall of solitude.
 
 
Oaza mira
 
“Ako nešto potražite s dovoljno hrabrosti, pronaći ćete sve što želite. Možda će imati puno drugih stvari koje će ignorirati, a samo jedna od njih može biti istina.”
 
Probudila sam Vas.
Vidim kako se mučite…
Znam šta se sad s Vama zbiva!
 
Rekli ste mi:
-Bio sam, ali već dugo nisam,
Ubili su u meni dobrotu i samilost,
čak i samu ljubav.
Duša mi otvrdnula, ne vidim odanosti,
Stvorili oružje da se branim…
Ali čuda Vam čine reči moje::
-Vi ste dobri…predobri…”
 
Hoćete saznati jesam li ona koju tražite,
zašto sam Vam trag ostavila…
Verujete da sam ona devojčica iz snova,
ja sam Vam važna i zaštita koju vam pružam.
 
I gradite novi Vašemoj svet,
novu dvoranu opasanu Vašim rukama,
raskošno uređenu vizijom sreće i snova.
Razdvajate nas visokim zidom od vanjskog sveta
štitite našu oazu pronađenog mira…
 
Ubogo biće, ne bojte se, govorim Vam.
Ja ću širiti blago svetlo Vašim mislima da Vas ne uplašim,
hodat ću pažljivo Vašom dušom kao po svilenim jastucima,
zlatni vez plesti svilenim nitima oko Vašeg srca,
tkati dragoceni mozaik života…
I Vi za mene imate iste važnosti.
Jer u moj svet ulaze odabrani…
a ja malokad napuštam dvoranu samovanja.
