if rivers and streams flow where you are
i’ll follow the way flood waters behave
surging with strength, it’s noise reaching far
into the sea, to be part of the rushing waves

if summers do come and dry you up
revealing the character that you manifest
rivers and streams will become empty
wilted tree crowns, bad for nature’s forests

request for rains follow as i pray
dark clouds falling as you drench my way
to the rivers and streams i have followed you
where your love resides, your home runs through

it’s almost night
though the sun is high
a plethora of dark clouds
seems too fast to multiply

rumblings in the somber sky
like bowling balls in rapid roll
on a wooden lane lucky to strike
all ten pins with all your might

then the sky put on the weeps
letting go all the tears it could keep
into rivers and streams catching the loose
plants and trees enjoy ringing the blues…
