For My River, for Giving Me Life

I love you.

The universe is always on our side.

Even though she forces us to go through ups and downs

Crying and shouting

Until we feel calmer inside.

I wonder how I can't move on

And it hits me that I will always love you

All my life.

Even though I can't hold your hand

Or guide you the way i want

The occasional hug and smile

Keeps me alive.


Don't get me wrong, to myself i am more kind

And since January of '18 I have had to

Learn that by and by

But instead of tricking myself that

I meant nothing to you

And that you love the new girl more than you ever loved me

I can replay the great memories in my mind

And with happiness I cry.


Today I wanted to scream I LOVE YOU, MY RIVER

I LOVE YOU

But you weren't there to hear it.

Instead I thanked the universe for the way we always seem to collide

So I can make sure you're okay

Beyond the dreams of you I have.


I go over the era where we existed as a duo

And sigh

I wish I had been more kind.

I called you the love of my life

And am truly grateful for the time you shared with me.

Anger has passed and fondness replies

Through warmth and music and sunlight.

I hope one day you read this and smile

And you remember how your kitty tried

To fight.

One day if you ever need me, I will be at home in our space ready for your mind.

My final promise, I will keep until I die.
