The Endless River (poem)

Updated on April 1, 2015

He cried a river for the one he lost

And in that river all his dreams were tossed

There was no meaning floating past this day

Just wonder at what shadows had been crossed

-

He watched a heart once beating drift away

But one of many things not meant to stay

The memories which haven’t happened yet

Are moments which the river now convey

-

He wanders through the dawn of this regret

Upon a world he thought would never set

A garden kissed by everlasting’s glow

Where every thirst of lovers’ hopes was met

-

There in the music made by gentle flow

He found the gift existence can bestow

Some wonder can a fairytale come true

A certainty which he would come to know

-

But bright days took on a different hue

As dancing rain would cover tearful dew

And from the droplets life of river churned

To crest upon the twilight they were through

-

There by the river all he knew was spurned

To end of pain and sorrow feeling yearned

Then in the river a reflection glossed

Was something lost as something was returned

      This is beautiful, Martin. I imagined myself sitting by the river, listening to the gentle ripples and glimpsing the horizon in its reflection. Very peaceful.

      The river of life takes away and brings more in its wake. This is a beautiful reflection of the flow of life.
