“Silence is a true friend who never betrays”. Confucius
She's with Me
Melancholy; as she sits at the river’s edge,
quietly watching water cutting a wedge,
in the mountainous terrain that it's fed.
I remember her telling me; “silence sets me free”,
as I sat beside her, I keep thinking “how can that be”!
There’re birds singing, water roaring; it’s loud in this valley.
She was talking about her eternal soul;
I am not sure; today she seems distant and cold,
wading in cool water as if she were alone.
She looks straight at me with a beautiful warm smile,
and my heart flips inside out; there’s no denial,
introspectively I can see; she not alone she’s with me.
The morning sun reflects in the distant horizon,
and vapor rises; it's silent yet filled with sound,I grab her hand and let our love resound.
