The heliator’s smile
 
An old photo closes a sweet memory coming from
those carefree years,
the student years.
 
An innocent angelic face, a soul, pure, blessed,
two eyes soft, humble
but the smile, this smile closes inside it
all the bright rays of the sun.
 
My favourite pride,
the sun’s smile you are, a brilliant sun, life-giving.
 
You warm the world with the flame of your love,
you sow goodness in your passage, you illuminate the
dark souls of people with unseen light!
 
No one will steal this smile from you!
You deserve it, it springs from the warmth of your child’s soul!
 
And if some people envied it and tried to deprive it from you,
remind them that the sun sets but again rises brilliant!
 
You were, are and will be the heliator’s smile,
God’s gift to me, my beloved.
 
I will keep this photo deep in the leaves of my heart,
an adorable souvenir, a unique heirloom.
 
I only ask you a favour,
my sun, a little of your warmth, if you want,
send me and smile at me wide again
and again!
 
 
Smile, my soul!
 
Smile, my soul, smile,
a sudden downpour was over.
 
The smile of the sun is now worn and
the colours of the Iris accompanied.
 
The new day, my light, good morning,
the strangeness of the world
set aside.
 
Smile, my heart, smile,
tell me a song
and had fun.
 
Not worth it, my love, to go crazy,
Life is beautiful, to enjoy it!
 
Smile, my soul, smile,
take me in your arms, now and fly.

The feeling of love
 
It is the strongest feeling of all.
Love means affection, interest, warm hugs, caresses, kisses.
Love is a real treasure.
Give love!
Save the world from loneliness!
 
 
You are heaven
 
You are heaven,
bright light of my soul,
an angel.
An adorable love,
heaven and earth together.
