Cry Me A River - Poem by Amanda Shelton

Love me like the mountains love the rain.
Cry me a river,
Of a lover's tears let me wipe away all your salty fears.
Let them drizzle down my windows pain,
My heart is filled with all your sufferings, and shame.

Like a river my life flows down your hills of grain,
Overflowing into tomorrow's horizon,
As my sun sets beyond today's footfalls,
And your moon falls into my future orbit.

I am the astronaut flying to your moon,
My footprints are lift on its dusty suffuse.
My heart was lost there,
out in the blackness of the unknown,
Floating, gloating, surfing the stars,
with my star cross lover.

Cry me a river of unforgivable love,
Show me your eyes full of tears
Full of poetry, and a lover's passion,
and all their fears.

Love me like the moon loves the stars.
Cry me a river, of falling stars
I'll catch them in my bucket,
so I can wish upon them years to come.

Cry me a river.
