A Smooth Stone


A smooth stone, I stood by the river
Letting it flow over me
My tears it carried forth
My joys left behind

Gentle hands ripples brought
A smooth stone, I stood by the river
Picked up from amongst green moss
A life begins, a life ends

Polished and kept on the sill
Sun glittered all around
A smooth stone, I stood by the river
In days gone by, gone by

No water to carry the tears
No moss to pillow the head
The sad river fondly remembered
A smooth stone, that stood by the river

    I really like how the smooth stone represented something so much more than just a stone. Wonderful poetry, Tahera.
