BEAUTY IS SIMPLE















When morning brings a cheerful day
and sunlight comes from far away
then simple lines of warmth and waters
remind me of my cheerful daughters

Whose voices call me from so far
and make me feel a shining star
of love and feelings deep and nice:
this seems a bit like Paradise.

The laughing lines of Carmen's smile
do linger with me for a while
her face so warm and tender.

And Blacky's olive-coloured eyes
look funny, sad and even wise:
they cause my sweet surrender.
