Oh mighty river, by your banks fair and blue,
Tell me how many lives you have seen,
End and begin, of so many people that have been.
I remember how you watched as I grew,
So tell me what you saw before my time,
When man committed not a sin or a crime?

I watch you dance merrily in the wind,
All emotions left far behind,
Streaks of white in your blue hair,
Your eyes cold, freezing the air.
You have seen so many things,
Hot summers and sweet springs,
Come and go, live and die,
Love blossom and hate cry,
Did you ever care
For all the people that were there?

Living by your coast,
I wonder whether one day,
You'll remember a little girl lost
In this world, wanting to get away?
Will you remember me?
And how you helped me see,
My troubles would soon be over,
And I, like a jealous lover,
Chased all the others away,
So you would talk to me,
And with your stories set me free.

Now I come back to the very same place,
Where you first saw my crying face,
So many years have come and gone,
Yet you are still the same, and I am still alone.

Now I see I am not the only one you helped,
He is here too, did you tell him off me?
Maybe it is to him that I was destined,
By you or by someone my eyes do not see.
He too is alone, but now we come together,
To see you and listen to you tell us of another
Couple, long ago, and of the happiness they found,
By your banks. Now we live here, on this sacred ground,
And you will watch us for years to come,
When we are gone, you will care for our home,
And the children that may lighten it,
But I know that when I leave, my spirit,
Will always come to speak to you,
And linger here until even you are through
With life and death, and your flame,
Goes out, as quickly as it once came.

AN: Whoo, how long, I had to write this, for those who haven't realized,

favourite. Well, please tell me what you think, I know it's far from
perfect but I'm quite proud, lol. REVIEW. NO FLAMES
