my sunday poem … # 4

This is a song poem I wrote many years ago. It’s about a journey that we all take. It’s about the passing of time. Hope you like it.

river to the sea

peace_on_a_paper_boat_by_dralamy-d68onp1

cupping my hands
to drink your water
running in the river-bed
down to the sea
little boy plays
on your banks so muddy
float a paper boat
on the surface of time

lapping to the shore
is a diamond sparkle
fishing for a thought
with a wish upon my line
little boy now
is an old man smiling
float a paper boat
on the surface of time
