A River Meets His Sea (poem)

A river drifts into the endless sea

A lifeless soul no meaning after all

A bitter waist as sun begins to fall

So now with fear he meets his destiny


He spent his timeless spring in memories

Which soon gave way to seasons of the rain

And after that his life appeared so plain

Gray sands along his bank are all he sees


If I could do it all a second time

Where teardrops sharing heartbreak with his mind

So hard to face the fate which was resigned

The stairs to thing undone he now must climb


He closes eyes as ending this ensues

A field of flowers last thing that he views

Such grief and sadness expressed in this sorrowful poem.

A life in turmoil and a spirit disheartened easily become disillusioned.

I suppose the last view we can hope for, is a glimpse of wild flowers.

Nice work, Martin.

I guess sorrow is the word, but you do express it so beautifully.
