River Left Us

By Tina Elaine Edwards,
Great Fall, South Carolina, USA

River left us a while ago
Sudden Death
It was time to go
Life is binding
So he is free
Feel no sorrow
For it was meant to be
It was time for his world to end
The breeze lifted him
Carried on by the wind
Over the sea
To the sky
Why did he have to die?
We all sigh
His heart so pure
Voice so strong, mind so sure


Was he really here?
What was he?
Not human
No, no don't think so
Maybe an angel or demon or god
Far above us
Too far to reach

Goodbye to youmy friend,
 my brother,
 my lover,
 my River.
