Rainer Tiemann

Late realization

When you were young, you told me
you had so many good friends.
When you were forty, you told me
you had only ten good friends.

Did you ever realize
that one friend in a lifetime is good luck,
that two friends is more than good luck?

Did you ever realize
that to have more than two friends
is hardly possible?

You´ll realize, when you are older:
Age leaves us sometimes one good friend
and perhaps some good bottles of wine.

Oft himmelsnah: Lyrische Begegnungen von Rainer Tiemann



Wer mit offenen Augen durchs Leben geht, wer Menschen mit all ihren Stärken und Schwächen mag, wird Dinge erleben, die vielen verwehrt bleiben. Ihm werden Menschen begegnen, die sein Leben unverhofft bereichern.

Jeder, der sich bis heute ein wenig Romantik bewahrt hat, dem vor allem Menschlichkeit eine Herzensangelegenheit ist, wird gerne an diesen lyrisch aufbereiteten, magischen Begegnungen des Leverkusener Dichters Rainer Tiemann teilhaben.
