Softly She Cries (poem)

There by the river softly she cries

Glorious sunshines echo through skies

As sweet scented breeze carries her sighs

And each passing wave whispers goodbyes


Was clear in each glance he loved her so

No sorrow no pain ever she’d know

The reason for day her special glow

He promised this Joy never would go


They’re kissing again came angel cries

Their laughter was taste all came to know

Was it the moon or was it their glow

That touched weary world blesséd goodbyes


Was ever a love perfect as so

Their dreams the sunshine filling the skies

Enchantment of evenings thrilled by their sighs

Who knew that such times ever would go


One day the river heard their goodbyes

Her rich memories blossomed Joy’s sighs

Mid pure happiness written in skies

There by the river softly she cries
