river

The river continues in its path
Outbound tides that pull me towards the sea
Leaving my beloved resting place
Traveling to worlds bewildering
And I am lost in the "could have been"
Presently floating
Far from the past
Further from the future
Familiar docks become distant specks
My new landings yet unknown
Constantly floating
The waters sweep me along gently
I feel my heart rise and fall
With every miniature wave
Each ripple along the surface
Whispers a meandering story
Of unexpected hope, sparkling wonderment
Collective endeavors to guess
The expanse of the unending ocean
~
Love is an ocean wide
{and hope does not put us to shame}
