Until the River Meets the Sea



until the river bends
and I drift into the sea
in my heart you'll always be
love a mystery that never ends

laid my dreams in a river bed
heartache, silent ripples of loss
skipping stones with just one toss
recalling all the words we said

riding  waves through eternity
rolling off shorelines of paradise
tossed in the waters of sacrifice
seeking a piece of serenity

until the river bends
and I drift into the sea
in my heart you'll always be
love a mystery that never ends

lulled to sleep, by a mariner's song
billowing sails of tranquility
verses of poetic sensibility
tears wept for a love so strong

beacon of light flickers ahead
parting  clouds ,  sun does shine
slowly giving birth in a river bed
those wondrous dreams of mine

until the river bends
and I drift into the sea
in my heart you'll always be
love a mystery that never ends

    I specially adore the lines:

    "until the river bends
    and I drift into the sea
    in my heart you'll always be
    love a mystery that never ends"

  2. Particularly the end was intriguing.. the estuary is indeed a place of parting... the metaphor worked very well.

  10. Beautiful words, but I love how even the 'shape' of the words looks like undulating waves.

    1. hmm..I hadn't noticed that thanks for opening my eyes to the waves..

    2. And here I thought you did that on purpose. That's even more impressive.

      It almost reminds me of when someone asks me about the symbolism I put in a book... and I actually didn't intend anything poignant or metaphorical. It was just literal. Maybe the subconscious is smarter than we give it credit for and we meant to do it all along...?

      Delete
    3. That is an interesting concept, but I do believe the subconscious is very smart. Hmm..I am always seeing symbolism in things and I often wonder if it is just me or do others see it as well?

  11. I very much like the repetition of 'in my heart you'll always be.' As I read this poem, I kind of felt as if I was riding the waves.....not only in the sea but right to that eternity you spoke of.

  14. Lyrical and hypnotic in feel, but quiet clear in its message, I can appreciate a sense of confession, about a tie no longer bound.

    Lovely!!

  21. This poem has a beautiful flow, a calm rhythm, like ocean waves. The minute I started reading it I felt the motion, soft and subtle but so solid and strong. I think this rhythm is what first took me into the poem and then the words painted the picture.

    It's as if your poem is like a slow dance.
