Like the River
We floated downstream like swans in the sun Surrounded by friends and lovers We watched on with smiles beaming so bright The river behind them, the fading daylight I knew her back from when she was young Those days poured out faster than rounds from a gun Scattered like shells and lost to the sea Like the river the days move rapidly I have all these memories, I don't know what for I have them and I can't help it Some overflow and spill like waves some I will harbor For all of my days I burned liked oil, you grew like a flower Rising toward your magical hour I was not yours and you were not mine Our true love finds us when it is time We drove back downtown Wasted and spent Down highways that I remember Happy for her and happy for me The old times and the new to uncover I laid down my head, in love with the night With my new love beside me, her radiant light I faded away, along with my thoughts Like a dream and I trail off mystically
