Bright Eyes of Life

open doors LHWS

Having a very good strong foundation of childhood from the Pearl of the Orient Seas, I have met the more challenging years when I moved to live in the Occident. Embracing a new life at the Occident, without losing nor forgetting my roots, opened into many bright eyes of life as I continued to walk and admire, learn and share at the landscapes of a heart and listen reflectively at the whispers of a soul.

This is an excerpt of a poem I have written in Italian. When I reflected on these lines in Italian, it rhymed more than when I wrote an English translation afterwards.   I write and speak very fluent Italian because I lived for 14 years in the Swiss Italian canton (region) Ticino of Switzerland.

If you wish to skip the Italian verses, please scroll down and you’ll find the English translations.

Enjoy reading & a recent the video clip I made, Bright Eyes of Life.

Il passato ci ha insegnato:

cose da lasciare,

cose da perdere,

cose da imparare,

cose da mantenere.

Il futuro ci aspetta

con tanta speranza,

con  la gioia profonda,

con l’amore dal cuore

che sa amare veramente

come un cuore di un cigno

che la significanza

cosa significa:

“amare per sempre…”

Il presente è un dono

per noi tutti

a condividere la nostra gioia

con la gente più amata

nella nostra vita.

In quella donna singola con due figlie:

Il ritmo del suo cuore:

è questo uomo che vola per sempre!

ma torna a casa nel suo cuore,

una persona speciale

che non riesca a toglierlo nella sua mente

giorno o notte!

La musica della sua anima:

Sono i suoi angiolette

due bimbe meravigliose, belle, brave ed intelligente.

Loro sono la prima agenda

della sua vita.

Una vita motivata con tanta ispirazione

Dal suo ritmo del cuore,

Solo guardando al di la sul cielo

Lei pensa con gioia

e un ’amore nascosto

Che nel futuro sarà condiviso

Quando il tempo è giusto!

Lei ha perso il primo amore,

Lei ha di nuovo ritrovato la fede.

La sua speranza è sempre forte.

Lei ha trovato una vera amicizia:

che la fa crescere con tantissima gioia ed amore!

The past has taught us:

Things to leave behind

Things to lose,

Things to learn,

Things to keep.

The future waits for us:

with a lot of hope,

with a lot of deep joy

with a lot of love in our hearts

who truly knows how to love

like a heart of a swan

which knows the significance

of what it means:

“to love for always…”

The present is a gift

For everyone of us

Who shares our joy

With the persons we love most

In our life.

This single woman with two kids:

The rhythm of her heart:

Is this man who loves to fly!

And  in his heart he comes home,

to a special person

whom he can’t take off

his mind

day or night!

The music of her soul:

Are her angels

Her marvelous girls, beautiful, good and smart.

They are the first agenda

Of her life.

A life motivated with a lot of inspiration.

From the rhythm of her heart.

Looking only towards the sky

She thinks with joy

And her hidden love

That in the future shall be shared with the one she loves,

When the time is right!

She lost her first love,

She has found her new faith.

Her hopes shall always be strong.

She has found true friendship

Which makes her grow with lots of joy and love!

Questa donna singola va avanti con la sua gioia

Single Mom moves on with her life with joy
