The Riverbed is lined with friends and family and
The tide’s left and time has long abandoned me and
In the stillness, at a depth where the light can hardly reach,
There sits there - Oh! Some ancient part of me and
How beautiful she is!
How fragile her thoughts!
How honest she can be when she knows what she wants!
My mother’s there but hiding among the tallest reeds and
My brother stares - he’s fighting to keep his mouth from opening.
Alone it seems, I slide in next to this younger me and
Here in this dream I’m finding a smile breaks over me and
How beautiful we are!
How fragile our thoughts!
How honest we can be when we know what we want!
