River regardless



River regardless where am I, you flow on after I die,
rushing streams in full blown spate, meeting deadline fate.
Sometimes we just flow peacefully
and at some point we reach the sea,
you’ll still be there and so will I,
but you’ll be somewhere in the sky.
River to sea, to sky, it’s much the same when we die,
I’ll be the rose, adorn your banks, you’ll be the cloud,
and I’ll give thanks...
