And… The River Runs Through It


Those sweet memories still linger in my mind

The chain of mountains, The birds singing their song,

The outspread meadows…

And the river that runs through it!

I still see us walking along the river bank holding each other’s hand.

And as we lie down on the grass, Interlocked in arms, looking at the sky,

The rock sings for us, a melodious song,

As the river runs through it!

I still go there

Sometimes in dreams and sometimes in real.

The birds are still singing and the rock still sings.

Everything is unchanged except the fact that

You are nowhere to be seen.

You have crossed over to the other side of theriver,

The outstretched field of heaven!

And as I sit on the grass, sorrow grips my mind

And… The river runs through it!
