Lost In The RIvers Of Love


Unexpectedly, I fell into a river
In it I saw something worth more than treasure
Honestly my deepest fear was to drown
So to free myself I swam
I was good at swimming so I swam and swam
Unfortunately it was there I met my deepest fear
I drowned and the river grew into a sea
I continued to swim but the lands were invaded by the sea
The sea grew more and more and filled the earth
Sincerely the truth is I never wanted out
I sank deep into the sea
Now there is no way i can, even if I want to be free
I am lost in the rivers of LOVE
but I do not want to be saved
What if what I saw in the river was a mirage?
My life would be lost in the illusion of love
There is only one way to find out
There is always a YES or NO answer
But which is it?
It is only what I saw in the river that can tell me
and I know that this time I am ready
Cos in the rivers of love there is no place to hide
I want to drown to the death
Just allow me and never search for me cos I know I am lost

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
