[Poem] Timo Schmitz: “Journey round the world” (2015)

No matter what you might think,
I’m in search of big adventures.
And longing for the missing link,
A place without any pressure.

No one can stop me to go where I want,
Cause staying means my heart’d be hurt,
And even no nightmare can dare to haunt,
Because I like to travel in the world.

Even if you try to stop,
Letting me find my sacred home,
I’ll go there – and the running clock,
As time will pass, I’m all alone.

[PDF] Timo Schmitz: “Pourquoi est-ce qu’on a besoin d’une éthique?” (2018)

“La religion traditionnelle n’est pas le problème, Dieu n’est pas le problème. Le problème c’est l’homme. L’homme qui pense qu’il peut contrôler tous soi-même, qui joue d’être un être comme Dieu. C’est son jeu qui détruit sa liberté, il a peur de perdre l’auto-contrôle, il veut toujours plus !”

Mir bakumen elter mit di yoren,

Mit khokhme gefirt durkh a shtern,

Bloys libe iz in undzer hertser.

Translation:

Rest in peace
By Timo Schmitz

We get older with the years,
Until sometime in the end we close the coffin,
With wisdom guided by a star,
We will not hear the suffering,
Where pain does melt away,
Just love stays in our heart.

[Poem] Timo Schmitz: “10 minutes after my confession” (2013)

Today is the day that I confessed,
Your eyes were glowing,
The poem lying on the desk,
You were talking to me as I dreamt,
I am happy about the time we spent.

Now it’s getting better,
The sun in my heart, my best weather.
I care about you as I never cared before,
And saw a side of you that you never showed before.
It is the part of you that I adore.

Keep me happy as you did today,
Everything is past – yesterday,
All that counts is tomorrow,
Where I will have no more sorrow.

[Poem] Timo Schmitz: “10 minutes before my confession” (2013)

Also if I am close to you,
I’m still far away from you,
As closer I come, as less I understand,
If you are the angel, to be sent.

At least you don’t show,
At least you don’t throw,
The dark curtain around,
But what I search in you just can’t be found.

I don’t mind if you don’t choose me,
I only want you to be lucky,
Like a virgin in the dark blue sea.

In a July’s dream I dreamt of July,
And never found the answer to that “why”,
I can’t conquer your heart’s inside,
It seems so gloomy, so I want to lit a light.

Never letting you know what I really feel,
If I confess it won’t be real,
My heart might be a mass of steal.

No one knows how much it hurts,
Can’t express these things in words,
It makes the cold evening feel even colder,
My feelings still fresh, not a second older.

[Poem] Timo Schmitz: “Long time no see” (2013)

I haven’t seen you for so long – missing,
Your seat is empty today – missing,
And you are far away – still missing.

And when I remember you just now,
I’m not afraid of your eyes,
I could never take a vow,
My hope never dies.

Look, you are pretty, so what?
You always behave like you are god,
But this huge facade must be empty inside,
You are nothing special, I don’t hide.

And although you are nothing good to me,
I still love you,
But I won’t accept you anyways,
You can’t return from those rainy days.

[Poem] Timo Schmitz: “Confession to myself” (2013)

Tomorrow is the last day to see you for a long time,
I think I guessed right, you won’t be mine,
You have passed my way, without a word,
But you can’t destruct my heart with your sword.

I know what you think of me, please don’t play,
I have an anchor, I will go my way,
But I will save you when you drown,
And yet, I know, you will let me down.

I should forget you, now is the best time,
If I can realise that you won’t be mine,
Why do I love you so deeply, and yet I hide,
You don’t know my feeling, take me for a ride.

If you knew, it would change nothing.
So I will keep it my secret,
If you knew, you wouldn’t be suffering,
Because I know – you won’t care!

[Poem] Timo Schmitz: “Not again” (2013)

Near you, can you remember?
I mentioned you before,
I wrote about you in a summer night,
That time I dreamt you could hold me tight.

I gave up – it was better for us both,
But in my heart something new arose.
I could forget you, already twice,
Your attitude toward me is not nice.

And so I could be next to you once again,
And when I was near you – I hoped it would never end,
And yet it is like a flower who starts to grey,
Because I knew this moment would soon pass away.

No need to feel guilty, it is not your thing,
But anyways you would not wear my ring,
Thousand thoughts, how could I show, but it has no use,
I’m too sure that you will just refuse.

[Poem] Timo Schmitz: “Something old – something new” (2013)

I saw you before, was interested in you, but uncertain,
You might be shy, want to hide behind a curtain,
Not knowing before, now could I be sure?

The first time, you were delightful,
Now you still are like that, still so smooth,
But still we are living under two different roofs.

If I knew how you think about me, it would be nice,
Maybe I am hot like fire or cold like ice,
Your smile so special, it looks so wise,
What can I do? I need advice.

Something old turns into something new,
The heart’s fireworks melt the snow,
My feelings, I am ready to show.

Winter sorrow? No, not with you,
And even if you will not accept tomorrow,
I could not feel any sorrow.

But wait, it’s still to early to ask for more,
Just now, what’s your feeling, I’m not sure!
I heard a rumor, but is that person really you?

The many colours, they brighten the life,
And still you are nobody’s wife,
You are still young, the right one will arrive.

Is it me who can be yours? Oh, destiny!
So many sides of love I want to see,
So far away the ocean, so near their sound,
Could I be lying on the beach with you? Getting around?

So many thoughts enrich my day,
So many lovely feelings, all the time,
If you will accompany, that would be fine.

You deserve the right one with honesty,
What will it take?
Is there really nothing that could break?

I feel I impress you,
I see it when you are near,
At that time I am without fear,
But I am just too shy.

Can I hold your hand that winter night?
Can I kiss you, is it allright?
Can you sleep in my arms? I will hold you tight.

[Poem] Timo Schmitz: “No thoughts of you” (2013)

My thoughts of you are gone,
The way you had to run,
The barriers to my heart you can never break down,
You can run to my heart, but your sentiments will be thrown down.
So I ignore you, when I see you in the town.

No misery you can bring to my heart,
No anger, no sadness, no regrets,
My eyes won’t be wet,
So if you don’t pay attention, I don’t care,
I don’t pay attention to you either, I dare.

Whatever I felt in August,
I won’t be reminded again,
If you ask me “can you remember?”,
I will ask you “what and when?”
