The River

Dedicated to my beautiful SydneySider
Fresh dew upon the green,
Moist against her skin.
Ageing trees cast shadows,
The gentle breeze creeps through.

Swirling hues of liquid,
Lick at her fingertips.
Beaming sun’s reflection,
Still no answers she finds.

Whispered, silent wishes,
A river of lost dreams.
A glint of hope remains,
She calls for love once more.

Soon her prayers are answered,
He is there, in her dreams.
Reaching for each other,
Too far away to touch.

He welcomes her to him,
To embrace his true love.
A connection so strong,
A deep, binding promise.

“I’m too afraid to cross.”
Reluctance holds her back.
“What if I fall?” she asks.
Fear grips her too tightly.

“I’ll be here to catch you.”
His warm love holds her heart.
“I’ll never let you go.”
Their souls unite again.
