The Boy And The Stream (poem)

Updated on February 1, 2015

They met when they were both quite young

When destiny was still unsung


Then they awoke to youthful dream

This boy who ran across a stream

And waters joined to form a seam


And as they grew they shared their view

With each discovery a new

Exciting secret shared by two

What wonderment did they pass through


Then others came to join them there

Some flowers mingled with the air

And so much more with which to share

Reminders that they still do care

Are leaves that fall from everywhere


As one by one the flowers die

Their past is falling from the sky

Each teardrop just another why

But time can offer no reply

The friend he knew had fallen dry

There’s nothing left to feel him cry


He wanders through his memory

Searching how this came to be

The price of destiny

And it heard his plea

Whispered it’s me

Now I’m free

The sea
