I have lost my SMILE :-(


di Daniela Domenici

I have lost my SMILE

or better

someone has stolen it…

Where is it now?

Has someone found it?

My SMILE is easily recognizable:

true, spontaneous, warm, open, joyous…

Can someone look for it, please?

It was part of me…

I loved it…

I miss it so much…

I wonder where it is now…

I hope it’s not suffering too much because it’s warmless and joyless…

My poor SMILE…LOST…who knows where…

maybe forever…

“Misty”


Look at me
I’m an helpless as a kitten up a tree
and I feel like I’m clinging to a cloud
I can’t understand
I get misty
just holding your hand

Walk my way
and a thousand violins begin to play
or it might be the sound of your hello
that music I hear
I get misty
the moment you’re near

You can say
that you’re leading me on
But it’s just what I want you to do
don’t you notice how hopelessly I’m lost
that’s why I’m following you

On my own
would I wander through this wonderland alone
never knowing my right foot from my left
my hat from my glove
I’m too misty and too much in love

You can say…

On my own…

“Rose of my heart”


by Johnny Cash

We’re the best partners this world’s ever seen,
Together as close as can be.
But sometimes it’s hard to find time in between,
To tell you what you mean to me.

You are the rose of my heart,
You are the love of my life.
A flower not fading nor falling apart,
If you’re tired, rest your head on my arm.
Rose of my heart.

When sorrow holds you in its arms of clay,
It’s rain drops that fall from your eyes.
Your smile’s like the sun come to earth for a day,
You brighten my blackest of skies.

You are the rose of my heart,
You are the love of my life.
A flower not fading nor falling apart,
If you’re cold, let my love make you warm.
Rose of my heart.

So hard times or easy times, what do I care,
There’s nothing I’d change if I could.
The tears and the laughter are things that we share,
Your hand in mine makes it good.

You are the rose of my heart,
You are the love of my life.
A flower not fading nor falling apart,
If you’re cold, let my love make you warm.
Rose of my heart.

You are the rose of my heart,
You are the love of my life.
A flower not fading nor falling apart,
If you’re cold, let my love make you warm.
Rose of my heart.

“Desert Rose”


Cheb Mami Introduction (Moroccan Arabic):]
Hadaee mada tawila
Wa ana nahos ana wahala ghzalti
Wa ana nahos ana wahala ghzalti
Wa ana nahos ana wahala ghzalti
[English:]
Oh night oh night
It has been a long time
And I am looking for myself and my loved one
And I am looking for myself and my loved one
And I am looking for myself and my loved one

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man’s desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing’s as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

[Cheb Mami (Moroccan Arabic):]
Aman aman aman
Omry feek antia
Ma ghair antia
Ma ghair antia
[English:]
Aman aman aman
My life is for you
And no one other than you
And no one other than you

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall

[Cheb Mami (Moroccan Arabic):]
Ya lili ah ya leel
[English:]
Oh night oh night

“But beautiful”


by Burke and Van Heusen – 1947

Love is funny or it’s sad
Or it’s quiet or it’s mad
It’s a good thing or it’s bad
But beautiful

Beautiful to take a chance and if you fall, you fall
And I’m thinking I wouldn’t mind at all

Love is tearful or it’s gay
It’s a problem or it’s play
It’s a heartache either way
But beautiful

And I’m thinking if you were mine, I’d never let you go
And that would be but beautiful, I know.

<instrumental>

Love is tearful or it’s gay
It’s a problem or it’s play
It’s a heartache either way
But it’s beautiful

And I’m thinking if you were mine, I’d never let you go
And that would be but beautiful, I know

“Fever”


by Davenport and Cooley

Never know how much I love you
Never know how much I care
When you put your arms around me
I get a fever that’s so hard to bear

You give me fever when you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning
Fever all through the night.

Ev’rybody’s got the fever
that is something you all know
Fever isn’t such a new thing
Fever started long ago

Sun lights up the daytime
Moon lights up the night
I light up when you call my name
And you know I’m gonna treat you right

You give me fever when you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning
Fever all through the night

Romeo loved Juliet
Juliet she felt the same
When he put his arms around her
He said ‘Julie, baby, you’re my flame
Thou giv-est fever when we kisseth
Fever with the flaming youth
Fever I’m afire
Fever yea I burn for sooth’

Captain Smith and Pocahantas
Had a very mad affair
When her daddy tried to kill him
She said ‘Daddy, o, don’t you dare
He gives me fever with his kisses
Fever when he holds me tight
Fever, I’m his misses,
Oh daddy, won’t you treat him right’

Now you’ve listened to my story
Here’s the point that I have made
Cats were born to give chicks fever
Be it Fahrenheit or centigrade
They give you fever when you kiss them
Fever if you live and learn
Fever till you sizzle
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn.

“Michelle”


by Beatles

Michelle, ma belle.
These are words that go together well,
my Michelle.
Michelle, ma belle.
Sont les mots qui vont tres bien ensemble,
tres bien ensemble.
I love you, I love you, I love you.
That’s all I want to say,
until I find a way.
I will say the only words I know that
you’ll understand.
Michelle, ma belle.
These are words that go together well,
my Michelle.
Michelle, ma belle.
Sont les mots qui vont tres bien ensemble,
tres bien ensemble.
I need you, I need you, I need you.
I need to make you see,
oh, what you mean to me.
Until I do I’m hoping you,
will know what I mean.
I love you.
I want you, I want you, I want you.
I think you know by now
I’ll get to you somehow.
Until I do I’m telling you so
you’ll understand
And I will say the only words I know that
you’ll understand, my Michelle.
