DOCKSIDE ENCOUNTER

She took him in completely 
that first day of July 
walking across a dockside 
capturing  his soul 
harnessing all of the gentle love 
of an Irish man 
 
in the second it takes 
for a dream to come true 
futures were decided 
as easy as the rain 
falls from the sky 
two hearts became one  
 
once in a  lifetime 
a beautiful stranger beckons 
and you answer 
without challenge or fear 
love arrives unannounced 
and invites your soul to dance 
 
on the side of a river 
a day like so many others 
except that everything you ever were 
would be no more  
a moment flows to you on a river 
and carries your destiny within  

                                          IRISH
