I miss your curves and sway
Oh, river.. now far away
I think of what could have been
Back then
Where could you've led me to
What wild adventures of riding you
I cry a river within

I miss your soft gently flow
Oh, river.. so hard to go
Your current mesmerized me
Run free
Your crystal blue made me high
You were my river I could've been your sky
You can't see..
I cry a river within

The day will come
When my tears will dry
This day's an eternity
But one day they'll fly
Sweet river memory
It will take awhile
When all thoughts of you
Will make me smile

Oh River 
One day you'll make me smile

~Lyric Man

Note: Her name was River. My first true love. We lasted a spring and summer. We cooled with autumn. Rivers just need to run free. I understood, but it broke my heart. We had perfect chemistry. I smile when I think back. I miss her at times.. I think I always will!  Then again, this could just be a song about the beauty of a natural river. You decide...

Indeed, there is no rhythmic undulating flow like the river of love. The Brazos running to the Gulf Of Mexico forever cascades the chambers of my heart. Peace and Love, Millard Lowe.

Great River Poem ... then you decided to haunt the reader with the Notes. We shall always have our Ganges, Demerara, Orinoco, Amazon, and Nile. Did I miss Mrs.? Mississippi (I'll ask her: ALASKA)

Just gorgeous … A 21st century re-up and elevation of some songs I remember from 'a couple of years ago:' Pat Boone's 'Moody River' (~1957) and Andy Williams' 'Moon River' (~1961). Like the blending of the nature with la femme. Best wishes, Gershon

Hi Lyric, What a beautiful write on a lost love. It shows how one feels when we visit old memories. It could be a smell, picture or thought. And in that moment we are connected with the memory of an old flame. Futhermore it can also be a song / lyrics about a natural river. Either way this is a good piece. Well done:-) Alexis
