the banks of my river
16" x 20" / acrylic on canvas
Will you sit by the banks of my River?
If I welcome you to my shores
Will you wait until you can hear the rhythm of my blood?
If my heart begins to beat in the knowing of you
Do you know your presence can change the banks of my River?
If I swell, if I recede, If I rise to meet you, If I quench your thirst
Do you wonder where I am moving to, or where I am moving from?
If you look into me and see your own reflection
If you leave, will you return?
When I am tired and the rains do not come
If you learn my song will you remember it?
When I no longer remember my own name
