Life is a River


Life is a river.
Sometime it over flows.
Sometimes it will dry up.
It will meander through time.
Life is a river.
Sometime it will flow rapidly.
Sometime it will flow slowly.
But it will always run to its end somewhere in time

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
