the river

i sit and i watch the river flow
and wonder where it will go
in the hope someone might know
then i ponder what to do
now i am without you
knowing that the years we had where to few
i watch it roll on by i dream
of where this river will empty , this mighty little stream.
like this river our lives slowly disappear,
as we continue to grow old year by year by year.

Sorry to hear about that, mate.....sad flower
I wanted to write a personal letter to you, but you have restricted answers only coming from..and age... There are people that would just write and maybe help you feel a bit better, I can only advise, you may be able to write to anyone, without a thought of dating, just changing thoughts. Think about it.
