River

June 21, 2007

You’ve a river of things
flowing through you
from you into you

Shadow and light
swirled so
and no way to know

where dark begins
and ends the glow
Forget me not

Though my ears be deaf
For my seas
are upon your horizon

near as a heartbeat
a ship seeking safe haven
that never saw your port

Your echoes may return
from living stone walls
unheard

unlistened
and my arches lift high
the vaults that will remain

for the sound continues
after it’s come back
and I’ll be around

when you get around
and your voice
is unlocked

In this many years
much is unspoken
you mayn’t think you know me

yet
but time is not wastin’
for I’ll be around

when you get around
And maybe I’ll get around
too

Bless you
Wipe your tears
on me

and I’ll wish you well.
