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

the sound of music keeps whispering
the usual sound i chose in my ear lingering
maybe several summers have passed me
all pleasing, mellow, soft and easy


deep in my heart flowed swiftly are memories
awakening sad failures and happy victories
transporting me back into the screen of life that was
when legion of blunders have shaped and built in a canvas

if i were to relive back the time
and fix myself on those stages of growth
seriously rectified
will be the lapses and faults
only time can keep those errors in the vault…
