A Poem- Show Me A Silent River

The Calming Silence of a River

Where we finally feel some peace



Show me a silent river

Where summer nights don’t end

When we breathe into one another

And we can forget everything that was said


I am sorry is not needed

Even though it may be spoken

The last effort to mend the mess

And take care of hearts that are broken


Show me pitch black darkness

Take me to another place

Soak me in a dream

And let my reality fade away


If it was possible

To start over again

The hurt would be less

And perhaps not so much regret


Touch the dream in bitter night air

Feel the wind take us over

Feel the wind take us from despair

It is so simple, and so very sweet


To take a trip to a dream and forget the brutal reality

Tell me it will be okay

And that tomorrow will be changed

That our tomorrow will not be the same as it was yesterday


Make me believe even if you lie

That you understand what I said

And the last moment will be the last time


Say you are sorry I have hurt

Say you wish you could take it back

Tell me your plan to keep us from fading back into the black


Show me a silent river

Where we can finally feel some peace

Show me a silent river

Where there is a meaning to you and me.

      saddlerider1 - we both know that the only way to write and write well is to write truthfully as it is experienced and felt... I have been around- here and there...been working more than I sometimes wish to be working, but it pays the bills that never seem to let up :) Thanks for stopping by and reading and for leaving a comment that has left a smile upon my face :)

      I haven't caressed your scribes for quite some time, I wondered where you've been, I missed you at mine. This is a moving and very stirring piece. It smacks of meaning, I know the feeling, I was there once.

      You write with so much emotion and trust. I hope life is treating you well, one has to read between the lines of Poets:0) This was a brilliant scribe. Bravo.

      That is one of your shortest poems, but still, as usual, has a message to convey. Very nicely written and expressed. Thank you for sharing. :)

      Thanks for the insight, I am glad you could draw the meaning behind the verses. Love is very complicated, and sometimes for the other person to try and fix things and say I am sorry, is the only thing we really need to continue to work on the relationship...but people are stupid and stubborn and often love is lost because of it.

      ubanichijioke,

      every time someone calls me a poet, I smile... I still have a tendency to think I am not yet worthy of such a title, but I still love to hear that people do like my work and that anyone even takes time to read it. Hopefully before December I will have my poetry book published and available... at that point I hope I sell a few copies (we will see)...

      Binaya.Ghimire , even though you have not commented on others, I am appreciative that you decided to comment on this one. I am glad that you like what you have read. As for the photos... you are right on- I try to find photo's which I have taken to go along wit each poem I write. There are a few poems I have not hit the publish button on, because I have yet to take the perfect picture to match the meaning of the poem... Eventually all will come to life. Thanks again for stopping in and for the comment

      The stunning photo caught my eye and the beautiful, heartfelt words tugged on my heartstrings.

      There is also wisdom in this poem because you've shown the way to make amends by this verse:

      "Say you are sorry I have hurt

      Say you wish you could take it back

      Tell me your plan to keep us from fading back into the black."

      Sometimes a heartfelt apology, acknowledging the hurt we've caused our loved one and letting them know the efforts we're going to make from this day forward are enough to let a relationship not only survive, but start to thrive again.

      Voted up, awesome, beautiful and interesting.

      I have noticed how you blend photos with poetry and create awesome word-picture. It is always wonderful to read your poems though I have commented in few, sometimes I really have no words to express.
