A River Holds Forever


You stood before me once at twelve
And gave me quite a notice
And once again at thirty-something
To heal a heart that was broken

At fifty, you returned to me
At ease and lingered longer
An earthy spirit satisfying
Only the need to wander

And someday when you can’t return
And your soul you cannot feed
Your mind’s eye will carry you here
And give you what you need

A river flows but always holds
And it shall leave you never
Your past, your dreams, your years, your tears
A river holds forever
