Coloring the World

Bijgewerkt op: 8 apr. 2023

2019 | ⓒ coloring the world

Nobody is here, the coast is empty

Standing here alone with my feet sinked in the sand

Searching for you in the sea, [the big ocean]

With a paintingbrush without painful memories in my hand


Before we grew older everything was just fine

There are many things I still want to ask and to say

How proud I’ve watched you being you, [your true self[

My childhood was how it should be, it was ok


So many questions in my head

What can I do to figure it out

Do I need the past to let go

with the pain, the fear and the doubt


The sun is shining, the sky is bright

Missing you, oh I miss you so

I’m restless, why did it happen

Why did you leave me, oh why you had to go


I'm your little girl, that will never change

My dream was to paint together

I will always love you

And in my heart, we color the world forever


Still I don’t understand the past

Why did it happen to me

It still hurts, but I have learned my lessons

Now I’m facing the future and have to let it be


I know I’m responsible for my own mistakes

But all I ever wanted was your love

At the end you gave that to me

That’s all I needed, it was enough


You are somewhere out there, so far away

While I’m watching the long long distance of the sea

But at the same time, you are so close

I carry you deep in my heart, you are here with me


[vervolg]

The sun is shining, the sky is bright

Missing you, oh I miss you so

I’m calm and at peace and I feel that you are here

And understand that I have to move on and you had to go


I'm still your little girl, that will never change

My dream was to paint together

I will always love you

And in my heart, we color the world forever.


Deze tekst kwam op mijn 50e verjaardag spontaan uit de lucht vallen. Het was 2 jaar nadat mijn vader is overleden en ik even werd overspoeld door emoties die mij terugbrachten in de tijd. Deze tekst heb ik later vertaald naar het Nederlands.
