The eagle soars unto heights unknown,
Its passion is a flight forelorn.
Eyes that gaze down upon the world below
See hope that begins to flow.
A broken wing can shatter
All the dreams that mattered.
Yet in time the bones will heal
And that eagle will once again sail.
You have flown away from this life
And though you’re missed, you were right.
Life is beautiful, bright, and glory
For our wings to you they shall carry.


I see you still as day turns to night
Your heart beats in the daylight
Though we can’t be near
Everything you say, I can still hear
Tomorrow the sun will rise
Tonight, the moon is high
You whisper in my ear,
‘I’ll always be here.’


If you see a sunset, it’s me, smiling
From behind it.
If I go away far, and you see a star
If you find it,
I’m inside it.
You can fold it, and hold it forever,
If you hide it.
If our words and worlds sever – if ever
I lose you;
If two thousand light-years or seven
Confuse you;
Remember me. Here and in Heaven
I’ll see you.
I’ll be beguiling my filing, still smiling
To see you.
When mountains, magenta and molded
Turn red,
Like you said,
You’ll find the feeling you folded
Not dead.
You’ll steal the swirling sky, turning
With me.
You won’t be bounded, but burning
And free.

Memory is a melody
Replicated in semitone
A da capo performed in diminuendo
the last dying note vanishing, unnoticed

And we wish
for the melody
not to pass out of existence
but to transfer to another space
where it obtains

Written by Els van den Eynde


Our love was like the river sunny
a bond we shared uncanny
your touch was valuable, more than money
you were the one in many
Oh my brother why You left me lonely
Now that you are not with me,
i see in everyone, if i could see thee
your death, your blood stand before me
i feel like diving dead into the sea
I remember your presence
with you I felt God‘s omnipresence
you have reached to His arms now
I live life know not how
but, I live in memories of thou
I travelled far and far
would there be someone like you out there
My search is stll on..
for the touch
I live in memories of you
