It was for sure not only one of the bests Hotels I stayed ever, it was the best so far!
I'm so thankful to have such a chance!
I made a promise to myself to share everybody this wonderful experience I had there, may you enjoy as I did!
Palm of hope...
Thoughtful human being...
Philosophy of life...
The leaving missing
Distances and days made me far from you...
Exactly how my missing and thoughts makes me closer to you...
Today the body revolt against the mind, and every part of it do crazy things...
Lips taste the wine...
And hands trembles...
Feet are calm...
While the body is dancing...
Eyes are watching the wall...
Thoughts are far, far flying...
to the place where they can be with you...
Tears are falling...
The last glass of wine after the tenth is falling to break...
Wine runs on the floor to be mixed with the tears...
The heart is dancing mad...
Hands are calm...
Feet are trembling...
Eyes are searching in all directions...
Thoughts are back, back to reality...
Again far from where you are...
The face is pale...
The heart is tired...
And the body falls!

Le Beach was the place to attract you every time you get out from your room, like a magneto it calls you to have a walk on its wonderful sands near the sea in different times of the day, to enjoy the typical sea calming and healing sound and the connection with God!
I'll tell you about myself
I'll talk about it all
all the countries I've seen
all places I've been
the travels I made
adventures, people, experience
I'll talk and talk
about the battles I had in my life
I'll tell you stories
about that knight who was ever alone
thinking about his lady
how he spent lonely nights
but with her in thoughts
I'll tell you legends
to show you my legendary love I have for you
or if you want I'll tell you merry tales to please you
I'll say whatever you want me to say
if you want jokes so you can laugh I'll tell
I will speak and speak with no break
to hold you another blink beside me
let me sing to you all the sweetest songs and melodies to see your beautiful eyes shining, and to see your wonderful smile on your face
if you want more, just tell me
wisdom... I will speak
romance... I will flatter
stupidity... I'll find for you
prayers... I'll do for you
poems... I never stop so far you're next to me, my inspiration
more... more... anything you want
you have only the right to wish
make a wish, two, thousands
there will be no limits
I'll talk and talk
because I know you won't
you'll keep your cruel silence
that's why I'm talking
because I love you
I need one thing from you
I have a right for one poor hopeless wish:
that's all I need
that's all I want

In the very last seconds before the sunset and say goodbye to the day, I wanted to catch another view of the supreme place called Hotel Sofitel Marinasmir!
Now I know that a luxury place is necessary to make the whole impression of a trip that it was fantastic :-)
And here is another perfect calm monument captured, only for the pleasure of the eye and soul...
I consider myself so lucky to see al this and to enjoy such a beauty that exist on our planet!
Sunset is the best time for such an ecstasy!
Weaker than tomorrow but stronger than yesterday
Like the rainbow that exist a little but most beautiful and don't know why
Just like the rain that fall to fade by irrigating flowers
I gave you all my time and got nothing
Like a gladiator who fights beasts and predicts what's on beasts minds
I thought I shall die for you, while I did not exist in your thoughts
Like the moon light that gives the evening a gorgeous meaning
I wrote poems under your inspiration but a pity you won't even estimate
That wounded Lynx is alone in the jungle licking his wounds
And I suffered long time, but time will kill the pain
Some facts are clear in life but we don't see them for some reasons
I needed long time before I discovered your dead heart, but I will survive
That river is still running, it shall bring woods and bodies in the end
Time all wounds heals, deep ones leave a scare but it'll be healed
People are different in this world; some are soft and other cruel
I cried like a child, but even cold hearts shall tremble for others pain
We think we reached the acme but we some times fall down suddenly
I waited for the meeting, but you asked for the end
Let it be, I'm leaving you with the best picture I kept for you in my mind
Because I once loved you, but there is nothing more I can do
Life is cruel, but it continues
A brand new day will always exist
I'll be waiting for my other chance, but no more mistakes
It is more than enough, and I'm really tired already

That's what I called this picture, in the calm of the beauty in that second, this palm was the best picture that symbolize the hope, as beauty as this view!
and I wanted to share this monument of meditation here!
Weaker than Tomorrow
Love is all I've got
This word is easy to be presented by me to people, birds, clouds, sun, rain...
But when I say it to you, it is hard...
Hard because it is the only time for the meaning of my life...!
You'll find a corner in heaven where angels cry like me...
I watched the sunset over the sea, in that beautiful summer day, and I thought of you...
Afraid to ask you if you love me,
Afraid from the easy No...
As the last hope will die like a falling autumn leave...
My broken heart will bleed, And I won't be able to gather its shades...
It is the cruelest thing when you lose the warm hope that covered you once...
Your No will bring snows to this summer...
I'll just look at your eyes and say then:
Think of me when winter comes...
As no spring will be followed,
*Me* in myself will be lost in the storm for good…
Only the cold dry wind will remain blowing in my life, whispering your name...
In spite of all, because the soul continues to exist after the body dies...
And that soul was sold a long time ago, as it is totally yours.
