RIVER JOURNEY

by Modar Neznanich
(1977)

 

Life is a journey we must all take.

A flowing river we must sail,

No matter how long or how short.

Sometimes that river bends,

And someone's ship is lost from sight;

At least for a time.

But, in the end, we all dock

At the same port.

Each of us having sailed our own course,

In our own way, but all are part

Of the same waters.

And this day,

After years of sailing alone,

I have met someone.

Someone to sail with me,

Beside me,

To help me weather the storms,

And keep me from grounding

In shallow waters.

Someone who fills the days

And ends the loneliness.

Someone who cares;

Someone I will always love.

And if the day should ever come

That the river bends

And one of us must sail on,

I shall not fret

Even though I shed tears of parting.

Because I know that one day

We shall both be docked

At that same port.

Together forever.

The end of our

River Journey.
