Stillness Of Our Riverside (poem)

Updated on March 13, 2014

Enjoy the stillness of our riverside

A time for us to set aside our dreams

And lavish in the luster of our themes

This marvel of a life two lovers tried

-

Our hearts shall shelter us as all else streams

The scent of memories will be our guide

To paradise’s passions’ pulse provide

Where ever waits the glow of kisses’ beams

-

The river will still wander to the sea

And many are the dreamers of the day

-

This shore was set aside by destiny

Which leaves us very little else to say

-

So make the most of what is meant to be

Enjoy the stillness dreams have sent our way

      If we are among the few who can find a stillness alongside the river;

      If we can close our eyes and smell a memory;

      If we can maintain our dreams during the hard times;

      If we can realize that we are destined to be right here, at this

      moment in time;

      If we can make the most of what is handed to us and hold it

      with a grateful heart;

      Then, we are the fortunate ones.

      Beautiful work, Martin. Your words set my mind in motion, this cold

      Friday morning.

      May you find the Joy that you bring to others,

      DJ.
