Into A River (poem)

Into a river they are borne

And from this life the two were torn

It happened on a Sunday morn

When gentle faces tear adorn

-

How did it start so few still know

It didn’t seem that long ago

When we all danced in lovers’ glow

And how we blushed when kisses flow

-

This past that fate would take away

Few dared to dream it wouldn’t stay

What path made these two lovers stray

From all the Joys of yesterday

-

Into a river they are borne

And from this life the two were torn

It happened on a Sunday morn

When gentle faces tear adorn

-

Her hope filled smile a memory

He loved her so the blind could see

He took her hand so tenderly

And so they met their destiny

-

Into a river they are borne

And from this life the two were torn

It happened on a Sunday morn

When gentle faces tear adorn

-

All still recall how church bells tolled

The sun held promises so bold

All watched as wonder there unfold

As to their fate these two then strolled

-

Into a river they are borne

And from this life the two were torn

It happened on a Sunday morn

When gentle faces tear adorn

-

It happened there within clear view

Mid flowers covered with spring dew

They took this step which all there knew

When they exchanged the words I do

-

Into a river they are borne

And from this life the two were torn

It happened on a Sunday morn

When gentle faces tear adorn

You amaze me with these beautiful words, I wish I could make words flow like that, with such meaning.
