    Follow the River

    In sounds of ripples laughing
    along a muddy shore;
    In the flutter of cottonwood leaves
    fresh from Spring’s arrival,
    her gentle voice awakens my thoughts:
    "Memory is a river:
    prevent it not
    from altering course.
    Waste not your precious life
    on ifs, whys or whens.

    Follow the river
    quietly into the night.
    Though you walk alone
    trust that endless shore
    to guide your steps.

    Walk fearlessly
    in your own light
    for my love cannot fill
    the longings in your heart,
    nor my tears
    heal the scars in your soul.

    Heed the voice of the wind;
    the subtle changes
    in passing seasons.
    Trade your measuring rod
    for a walking stick:
    follow me;
    transcend time, believe
    and you shall surely find
    your ship upon the timeless sea.
